Gleason Takes Home $6000 for Toledo Bend Win

Darold Gleason of Leesville, LA won the Texas Southeast Division Ram Truck Open Series event at Toledo Bend on March 26, 2016. Gleason weighed in a 24.37 pound limit of Toledo bend bass to win $6300. “I actually started really close. I caught my big one, an 8.11, real early in the morning in about 10 feet of water. We ended up going out to a deep spot. I’ve been on the water a good bit and the shallow bite is just not great. I did most of my damage out deep with a Carolina rig and a crankbait. I was lucky that I got two really big bites. It was one of those days where everything just came together. Right now, this is the number one lake in the country and I was just scared to death that someone was going to come in with 31 pounds and knock me out of the lead,” said Gleason.

Dusty Anders of DeVille, LA finished in second place with 22.51 pounds and had the 8.23 pound boater Big Bass of the day to win a total of $2901. “I started out deep, because I caught some out deep yesterday, but I had depthfinder problems. My unit worked until about 11:00 and went out again, so I moved shallow,” said Anders.

The third place spot went to Zack Gagnard of Pineville, LA with 20.67 pounds worth $1254. “I caught about 80-100 fish today. I did lose a big one, but it was a good day. I caught a bunch of fish and I’m ready to do it again. Most of my fish came out of 20 feet of water,” said Gagnard.
