Jonathan Botts of Abbeville, SC won the South Carolina division Ram Truck Open Series event at Lake Russell on April 16, 2016. Botts brought in an 18.08 pound limit, which included the 5.73 pound boater Big Bass, to win $5000 for first place and $480 from the Big Bass Pot. He also used an Abu Garcia reel to catch his Big Bass and was awarded a new Abu Garcia Revo XS reel valued at $159.99 through the Abu Garcia Revo Big Bass Bonus program. “I started in Rocky River and sat on one spot for about two hours. My second fish was my big one this morning. It jumped over my topwater bait several times. I knew there was a good one there, so I just waited it out. I ended up catching the Big Bass on a shakey head in that area. Clay points are where my fish were coming from. Most all of the points had blue back herring on them, but only some points had fish. They were really shallow,” said Botts.

Gleason Takes Home $6000 for Toledo Bend Win

Darold Gleason of Leesville, LA won the Texas Southeast Division Ram Truck Open Series event at Toledo Bend on March 26, 2016. Gleason weighed in a 24.37 pound limit of Toledo bend bass to win $6300. “I actually started really close. I caught my big one, an 8.11, real early in the morning in about 10 feet of water. We ended up going out to a deep spot. I’ve been on the water a good bit and the shallow bite is just not great. I did most of my damage out deep with a Carolina rig and a crankbait. I was lucky that I got two really big bites. It was one of those days where everything just came together. Right now, this is the number one lake in the country and I was just scared to death that someone was going to come in with 31 pounds and knock me out of the lead,” said Gleason.
