Brentwood angler wins Bass Fishing League event

Brad McClure took advantage of one particular sweet spot to claim the top prize Saturday in the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL), LBL Division tournament on Kentucky and Barkley Lakes. McClure, a Brentwood resident, caught 11 of his 12 keepers from one area near the middle of Lake Barkley. Three of the five he weighed came from a single brush pile and all five he took to the scale were hooked within a span of 40 minutes during the morning.

His winning total was 23 pounds, 14 ounces, which was nearly four pounds more than the runner-up. “I think finding the fish in that one spot with my Lowrance unit was key for me,” McClure said in a release from Fishing League Worldwide (FLW). “They were stacked because of the brush piles, stumps and baitfish. I put waypoints down for the individual brush piles and then used my MinnKota Ultrex Spot Lock feature to keep me stationary so I could make the same casts over and over to the piles.”
