Drew Boggs Takes the win on Kentucky Lake

Drew Boggs of Lebanon, TN won the American Bass Anglers, RAM Truck Open Series Kentucky Division tournament held 8/26/2017 on Kentucky Lake.  Running out of Paris Landing State Park near Buchanan, TN, Drew brought back a five-fish limit, that locked in on the scales at 15.83 pounds.  He anchored his bag and sealed his victory with a 5.06 lb.  kicker.  Drews catch gave him first place in the boater division, and his efforts were rewarded with a check for $5000.

“I stayed close, I didn’t go any further than 15 minutes away.  I caught the 3 pounder on a football jig out deep.  I caught the rest of my fish shallow flipping a jig, apart from my big fish.  I was throwing a lipless jig between cover, and I got hung up on a stump, when I was trying to shake it loose a 5 pounder came and hit it.”  Said Boggs.

Second place was taken by Eric Silverstsrim of Indian Mound, TN.  Eric brought back a limit of fish that went 15.71 pounds on the scale, he anchored his catch with a 4.40 lb. kicker.  Eric took home $300 for his second-place finish.

“I lost 2 fish that would have gave me the win, but that just the way it goes sometimes.  I caught everything on a Fishing45 ¾ oz. football head jig in Texas Craw.  I fished the drops from Hwy 79 down to Birdsong, and the Trokar Hook on the Fishing45 Jig kept them hemmed up and made all the difference.”  Said Silverstrim.

Third place was claimed by Matt Robertson of Kuttawa, KY.  Matt came to the scales with a 5-fish limit that locked in on the scales at 15.03 lbs. he anchored his bag with a 4.68 lb. largemouth for a kicker.  Matt took home $200 for his efforts.

“I caught all my fish on a 7-inch power worm, whenever its tough out here I can still always catch fish on them.  So, I just threw it all day long.”  Said Robertson.

Fourth place was Mickey Beck of Lebanon, TN with 5 fish limit that weighed 13.71 lbs. he took home $100 for fourth place finish.  Rounding out the top five was Rob Bryant of Danville, KY with a 5-fish limit weighing 12.88 lbs. he earned $100 for his efforts.

David Seaton of Buchanan, TN landed the biggest bass for the boater division.  David brought in a beautiful bass that locked in on the scales at 5.95 lbs. he took a $280 check home for that fish.

First place amongst the co-anglers was taken by Mike Blumer of Louisville, KY.  Mike brought in a 3-fish limit that locked in on the scales at 10.64 lbs. he sealed his placement with a 6.30 lb. kicker.  Mike took home a check for $900 for his efforts.  Mike also caught the big bass for the co-angler division using his ABU Garcia reel, and for that he will take home a brand-new ABU Garcia Spinning Reel. 

“We fished south of here, flipping brush we could see.  I caught everything on plastic worms and things like that.  We mainly stayed on the flats all day, and I caught my biggest one around 6:30 this morning.  I had all 3 of my fish by 8:30 this morning.”  Said Blumer.

Second place for the co-anglers goes to Roby Ervin of Lavergne, TN with a 3-fish limit that weighed in at 7.96 lbs.  He anchored his bag with a bass that locked in at 2.53 lb.  Roby took home a check for $400 for his day of fishing.

“I caught everything fishing top water, with a Whopper Plopper.  We stayed close to the Paris Area only going north and south a couple miles.  I lost one that felt pretty good but never did get to see it, it just pulled off, but it feels good to up on the stage for once getting a check.”  Said Ervin.

Third place for the co-anglers was claimed by Daniel Crockett of Old Hickory, TN.  Crockett only landed 2 fish but they locked in at 7.48 lbs. and that was enough for a third-place finish. Crockett took home a check for $300 for his placement.

“I caught one this morning, one midday, and 1 broke off after that.  If I would have landed that one it probably would have gave me the win.” Said Crockett.

Finishing fourth was Todd House of Hawesville, KY with 7.33 lbs. Rounding out the top five co-anglers was JoJo Walsh with 6.43 lbs.

This was the final one-day tournament For the Kentucky Division.  The next event will be the 2-day area championship on Lake Pickwick Oct.7th-8th 2017.  At the end of the season, the best anglers from across the nation advance the 2018 Ray Scott Championship, slated for the Red River in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana in April 2018.  For more information on this division visit www.ramopenseries.com or contact Kristin Malott Tournament Manager at 256-771-3709 or ABA at 256-232-0406.
