Ray Neighbors Takes the win on Hamilton
An ABA American Fishing Tour D47 tournament was held on 13 Jan 2018 Lake Hamilton launching from the AGFC ramp. 13 anglers came out and braved the frigid temperatures. Recent cold weather had dropped the water temps into the low 40’s across most of the lake with some anglers reporting shad die-offs in areas they fished. As usual, Lake Hamilton was a limit-fest but not many large fish crossed the scales.
Ray Neighbors topped the field with five fish for a total weight of 12.21 lbs. Ray threw a jig to catch his fish.
Randy Plyler sacked up four fish for a total weight of 10.22 lbs. on a jig to finish in second place.
Rounding out the top three was Blake Wilson who sacked up four fish for a total weight of 10.20 lbs. throwing crankbaits and jigs to fill his livewell.
Blake Wilson caught the big bass of the day at 4.19 lbs.
1st Ray Neighbors 12.21 lbs $478
BB Rob Stone 4.19 lbs $65
The next tournament in this division is on Lake DeGray on 10 Feb 2018 launching out of the spillway ramp.
I’d like to thank our local sponsors who provide great support throughout the year.
