Stearnes Qualified for $13,500 on Fort Gibson

ATHENS, Ala. – Brett Stearnes of Joplin, MO won the American Bass Anglers Open Series Oklahoma Division, held March 10th on Ft Gibson, OK. Running out of Taylor Ferry North, warm sunny weather had turned to hot sunny weather.  All week it had been in the 90s and the weekend brought soaring temps with a heat index well over 100 degrees.  With the water level stabilized and clear just about everywhere on the lake, most anglers were on a search and destroy mission to get a limit of fish.  Most were deep and being very difficult to catch.

Nevertheless, Stearnes had a solid day of fishing landing five keepers for 17.41 lbs. For the boater division victory, Brett took home a guaranteed check for $5000.00 but that wasn’t all.  He is also a Triton Gold member with his new 2017 21 TRX which qualified him the top award Triton offers for a $7000.00 bonus, $1000.00 from Mercury, and $500.00 from Motor Guide!
