Sanders and Holleman Win
National Crappie League
Tournament at Ouachita River-Poverty Point
Ist place team Sanders and Holleman fished Poverty Point coves. They had not prefished, so day one was to learn the water and fish locations, moving around and eventually locking in on the areas they found big fish. Fishing ATX1″ Baby Shads on Slab Syndicate hand ties, they caught 4 good fish on day one and fished the same area day two. The bite was on fire in the morning on day two giving them similar weights both days.
Cliff and Alissa Bammes fished Poverty Point in the middle of the lake starting off with two over 2 pounds by 7am. The fish were tight to the bottom, so seeing them was a problem at times. The bite was on and off, with no expected better afternoon surge. The wind took its toll on their batteries as it did for most teams. The hot bait was a Pro Tuff monkey milk with a white tail fished with Canine line on HH rods.
In third place, Lamar Bunting was single poling using Ozark Rods, Bobby Garland jigs, Snacky lures, Pro Tuff, and Maxis. He stayed on the trolling motor all day covering a lot of water. His batteries also took a beating, so he changed one out to extend his day by an hour catching his best fish in that period of time.
