FORNELLI TAKES BIG WIN ON STOCKTON
Lucas Fornelli of Mound City, KS took out Saturday with high hopes of catching a limit of bass, as he always does. He did not reach the 5-fish limit, but bagged three bass that went 14.51 lbs on the scales, winning this American Bass Anglers D126 tournament. His weight was anchored by Big Bass of the tournament, a largemouth weighing 6.73 lbs. Fornelli reported catching fish with top-water baits and using a caroling rig. Much of his fishing was done in the upper part of the lake. His total winnings totaled $733.00.
Second place went to Dominic Cavitt who brought in the only 5-fish limit; it weighed 10.16 lbs.
Mike Butcher took 3rd and James Hadley was 4th.
