Hometowners Ray Looney and Will Evans Win on Tombigbee PDF Print

The first One Pole Ultimate Challenge of the season took place on Friday and Saturday, May 8,9, in Columbus, MS on the Tennessee Tombigbee. This tournament not only set the stage for the Angler Team of the Year points race, but also challenges anglers by only being able to use one pole and artificial bait only. Anglers from ten different states battled current, stained water, and fluctuating water levels all week before putting patterns together to show off this incredible fisheries potential. 

Ray Looney and Will Evans, both from Columbus, MS, weighed in the tournament's top stringer on day two of 10.08 pounds to jump from fifth place to first place to win the Midsouth Tackle One Pole Ultimate Challenge with a two day total of 19.04 pounds. The home town team concentrated on 14-17 foot of water, finding lay down trees along the deepest channel ledges in the river, catching their crappie 12' deep with a combination of Midsouth and Bobby Garland jigs on 12' BnM Poles. Their boat was equipped with a Minn Kota trolling motor and Humminbird electronics. Looney and Evans took home a check for $5200.00 which included a $500.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat motor and a $500.00 bonus from Midsouth Tackle for using Midsouth baits to win the tournament. The team is sponsored by Crappie 101 and BnM Poles.

The McCord duo were pulling a combination of jigs and crank baits along channel ledges with BnM Poles strung with Stren Crappie Mono in 25-31 foot of water while catching their crappie 12-14' deep during both days of competition. The team was fishing from a Ranger boat equipped with a Mercury Motor, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, and Humminbird Electronics. The win earned the McMords a check for $6900.00, which included a $500.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat. Their sponsors include Cumberland Crappie, Crappie Reaper, and Southern Pro.

Jeff Riddle and David Maddux Take Their First Win on Beaver Lake PDF Print


Anglers from seven different states took to the clear waters of Beaver Lake for a one day national qualifier on Saturday, April 25. Pre fishing conditions were reported as tough during the week with high winds and temperature swings complicating the already difficult puzzle. A pattern was established as the week went along and Beaver Lake posted some impressive numbers.

Jeff Riddle and David Maddux, sponsored by Johnson Fishing, weighed in an impressive seven fish stringer totaling 9.62 pounds for their first Crappie Masters victory. Riddle and Maddux established a pattern during the week which held up on tournament day that included catching the winning weight in 20-30 foot of water just off the bottom. Their secret to success was trolling with lemon/white Johnson Shad Tails on low pound clear Stren Line while using a Humminbird graph with 360 imaging. The team fished from a Ranger Boat with a Minn Kota Trolling Motor and used 16’ BnM BGJP poles. Riddle and Maddux took home $2650.00 which included a $250.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat motor. Their sponsors include Johnson Fishing, Stren, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Tite-Lok, and Slabber Dave’s Sporting Goods.
