Waters wins on Truman
Division 49 held their latest event on Truman Lake April 28th with a field of 23 anglers. Weather finally cooperated with temps reaching the 70s but the bite was still working its way up as there was only 1 limit weighed in. Tom Waters of Independence, MO found that bite bringing 14.25 lbs. to the scales and took the win. Tom McGovern gave him a run for his money with 10.40 lbs. and 2nd place. Rick Brantner, who rejoined ABA this year came back with a splash and landed the Big Bass of the event at 4.93 lbs. bringing his total to 9.38 lbs. and 3rd place. Roger Springs also cashed in with 4th place and 7.80 lbs.
The bite is really starting to come on and the anglers will test their might coming up again on May 5th on Pomme De Terre out of Bolivar Landing. Tight Lines!
