Kincaid Wins Walmart Bass Fishing League Okie Division Event On Fort Gibson Lake
Grider wins co-angler title
"I've got a fair amount of experience on Fort Gibson, but I don't think I've ever fished there this early in the year before,"Kincaid said. "It's usually a lake I only go to in the summertime.
"I practiced a little bit on Friday and figured out that I could get bit flipping around the wood cover up the river where the water was dirtier,"explained Kincaid. "I started up there Saturday morning and got a limit pretty quickly. I pretty much ran that same pattern just upgrading slowly all day. I actually caught my biggest fish of the day with about 15 minutes to go before I had to weigh in."
Kincaid said that he caught most of his fish flipping a Berkley Havoc Pit Boss around bigger laydowns.
