Ott DeFoe of Knoxville won the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open on Douglas Lake in Dandridge. DeFoe led all three days on his home lake. He won an Open event at Douglas Lake in May of 2014. The five fish he caught Saturday tipped the scales at 15 pounds, 9 ounces to finish with a total of 50-3, more than 10 pounds ahead of the closet angler. He had consecutive days of 17-5 to give him room for error if needed.
“The water has not been stable all week,” DeFoe said in a press release. “I was thinking today could be really, really good just because the French Broad had been falling. But there was some extra flow in the Pigeon River this morning, and it seemed to kind of throw the fishing off a little.”
