Press Releases
BUNTINGS POWER THEIR WAY TO SEASON ENDING WIN ON TRUMAN LAKE!

What turned to be a hot, but near perfect weather day with light winds turned out to be an exciting pressure cooker with numerous positions on the line at the Crappie Masters, sponsored by The Renewable Fuels Association "Ethanol Fueled With Pride", American Ethanol, and Bass Pro Shops, Truman Lake National Qualifier and final leg of the Missouri State Championship, hosted by Missouri Corn and locally by the Clinton Chamber of Commerce August 19th. With big money on the line and year end positions to be decided, a stellar field of 85 boats, spotty and sporadic bite challenged the field that didn't disappoint with some of the best teams nationwide rising to the top of the leaderboard. When the smoke cleared the Power Pole team of Charles and Travis Bunting accomplished something that has eluded them, a major tournament victory on Truman Lake, topping the elite field with a seven fish limit that weighed 10.40 pounds, outdistancing the second place team of Tamie McGrann and Bruce Sprague who weighed in a strong 9.67 pounds, and the third place team of Matt Beckman and Jeff Lewis who continued a Truman Lake hot streak with a 9.39 pound weight. Team Bunting credited their Mercury Motor, Humminbird Electronics, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, and especially their Power Poles and drift paddles for allowing them to spider rig B’n’M Poles at a snail’s pace of nearly still to .01 miles per hour which was the key to triggering the bite in two to ten feet of water on the bottom using an orange and glow Muddy Water Bait which Travis makes. For the win Charles and Travis took home $4000.00 along with the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol Bonus of $250.00, combined with the Jenko Fishing $100.00 bonus for using Jenko Fishing products, and the $250.00 Power Pole Captain’s Cash bonus, totaling $4600.00. The Buntings are sponsored by Power Pole, B n M Poles, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Muddy Water Baits, Tite-Lok, Off Shore Tackle, Dub-L-Seat, Balzout, Ranger Boats, Mercury Motors, Engel Coolers, Missouri Gold Fish Hatchery, and Pro's Choice Marine.

RUYLE AND RIEDINGER RULE MARK TWAIN LAKE FOR 2ND YEAR IN A ROW

With unseasonably cool August weather and beautiful conditions, fishing on Mark Twain Lake was anything but hot for many of the 67 teams competing in the Crappie Masters Mark Twain Lake National Qualifier, sponsored by The Renewable Fuels Association "Ethanol fueled with pride", American Ethanol, Bass Pro Shops and the Missouri Corn Growers Association. The exception of the rule was the winning team of Brad Ruyle and Reggie Riedinger who blew out the field by nearly two pounds over the second place team of Tony Edgar and Travis Lepley with an astounding Championship weight of 9.21 pounds compared to Edgar and Lepley's 7.31 pounds. Ruyle and Riedinger powered their boat and Mercury Motor to an area not being fished by other competitors after minimal success early on Championship Saturday. They used their Humminbird electronics and Minn Kota Trolling Motor to identify quality fish and one pole fished Ozark Rods with Elite black and chartreuse hair jigs they manufacture in four to five feet of water, catching the better fish two feet down. The Champions credited patience as their key to victory.  Ruyle and Riedinger collected $4000.00 for the win as well as taking home an additional $250.00 from The Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol for using E10 fuel in their boat. The win backs up their victory earlier in the first leg of the Missouri State Championship at the Lake of the Ozarks setting them up to claim that state championship which they just lost out on in 2016.  Ruyle and Riedinger are sponsored by Elite Jig Company and Ozark Rods.

BECKMAN AND LEWIS BEAT THE HEAT AND A STELLAR FIELD TO CLAIM ONE POLE VICTORY!

With some of if not the best one pole anglers in the country participating, Matt Beckman and Jeff Lewis held off several strong Championship Saturday charges to go wire to wire and claim their first Crappie Masters One Pole Ultimate Challenge victory on June 16th and 17th. Sponsored by The Renewable Fuels Association "Ethanol Fueled With Pride", American Ethanol, and Bass Pro Shops, Midsouth Tackle Company, and the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, ninety-two teams participated in this artificial bait only shoot out with Beckman saying everything had to go right to get in the winners circle, and it did.  He also stated that he and Lewis had two perfect days of fishing with decision making and landing the quality fish that would eventually lead to the title. Leading after day one with a weight of 10.48 pounds, Beckman said he and Lewis really didn't feel a lot of pressure going into Championship Saturday and confidence in their fishing locations was a big key to victory. The team caught their winning fish on predominantly Black and Chartreuse Bobby Garland Slab Slayers, Midsouth tubes, and Muddy Water Baits on the bottom in 9 to 11 foot of water, using 10 foot Jenko Hypersense Rods, Humminbird electronics, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, and Mercury Motor to power their boat.  The winning weight of 21.20 pounds was enough to claim the $7500.00 Championship prize along with an additional $500.00 bonus from the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, a $100.00 Jenko Fishing bonus for using Jenko products, and a $500.00 Midsouth Tackle bonus for winning the tournament and using Midsouth tubes. Beckman and Lewis are sponsored by Jenko Fishing, Muddy Water Baits, Midwest Marine, and Alenco Home Improvement.
