Manson wins

Bass tourney

MAYSVILLE, Ky. — Scott Manson of Covington weighed four bass totaling 8 pounds, 10 ounces Saturday to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League Buckeye Division tournament on the Ohio River. For his victory, Manson earned $5,205.

“I started out targeting main-river fish but decided to head into the creeks,” said Manson who has four top-10 finishes in FLW competition. “I had four spots carved out but could only find shad in one creek. I had to be around the shad to get a bite.

“I caught my first bass around 10 a.m. – the biggest fish in the tournament,” continued Manson. “All four of my winning fish ended up coming from a 50- to 100-yard stretch. I just ran back and forth hitting submerged stumps and logs.”

Manson said all of his fish were congregating in about a foot of water.

“I caught three of them on a Junebug-colored Zoom Brush Hog and one on a white spinnerbait,” said Manson. “They were the only keepers I caught all day. Luckily they were heavy enough to win the tournament.”
