Greene Takes $5000 Win at Lake Seminole

Ken Greene of Lumpkin, GA won the Georgia Division Ram Truck Open Series opener at Lake Seminole on January 30, 2015. Greene brought in a 16.87 pound limit of Seminole bass to win $5000 for first place and $640 from the Big Bass Pot. “I caught the majority of my fish flipping with a Big Bot Fightin’ Frog in Hematoma color. Yesterday, I just picked up my flipping stick after not being able to catch much of anything. I just started looking for little mats along the river channel and just flipping into them. I didn’t catch but five fish today, so it’s not like I wore them out. These clear skies really helped the flipping bite for me,” said Greene.

Castledine Wins $5000 at Sam Rayburn Ram Truck Open Series Event

Todd Castledine of Nacogdoches, TX won the Texas Southeast Division Ram Truck Open Series opener at Sam Rayburn on January 23, 2015. Castledine weighed in a 20.77 pound limit of Texas-sized bass to win $5325. “The day started out pretty. I caught two right off of the bat in places I really didn’t plan on fishing. I caught the first two on a Red Eye Shad and then, went without a bite for a couple hours. After that, I caught two within four or five minutes on a 6XD. I only caught seven keepers today. About 1:30, I caught my biggest one. Yesterday was shockingly good and I really expected today to be the same way, but it wasn’t,” said Castledine.

Galen Bennett Slagle, LA finished in second place with 20.57 pounds earning $1654. “I basically sat in 6-7 feet of water throwing soft plastics to the edge of the hay grass. They were picking it up very slowly. If you didn’t let them eat the bait for a couple of seconds, you wouldn’t get a good hookset. I missed five bites that I think would have helped me,” said Bennett.

The third place spot went to Kris Wilson of Montgomery, TX with 20.14 pounds winning $1103. Wilson utilized Carolina rigged plastics and crankbaits for his third place catch. “I started on some fish in shallow water and caught a limit there. Then, I went out to some deeper water since the conditions were different today,” said Wilson.

Jerry E. Dubose of Silsbee, TX brought in a 9.00 pound largemouth to claim Boater Big Bass and win $800 from the Big Bass Pot. “It was the last fish of the day on the very last cast. It just goes to show that you never know and God is good,” said Dubose.

Watkins Wins $6000 at Inaugural Ram Truck Open Series Event

James Watkins of Lakeland, FL won the Florida Central Division Ram Truck Open Series inaugural event at Lake Toho on January 16, 2015. Watkins brought in a 21.64 pound limit of Florida bass to take home $6350. “I ran down south to Kissimmee to fish a little structure I found in four feet of water. The fish like to hold up there when they’re getting ready to bed. Two weeks ago, I had 25 pounds in that area. I went by Tuesday to check it and caught a five pounder. Within 30 minutes this morning, I had a little over 17 pounds and then, I flipped up a four and half pounder later,” said Watkins.

Second place on the boater side went to Joe Ventrello of Apopka, FL with 20.13 pounds. Ventrello earned $1899 for his efforts. “I ran down to Kissimmee and did some flipping. I lost two today that would have probably won it for me, but that’s fishing,” said Ventrello.

Dan Smith of Webster, FL finished in the third place spot with 19.52 pounds to win $1266. “I started out in Toho and went to a little pig trail where I caught a seven and a half pounder and one about a pound and a half. I started working some hydrilla after that and couldn’t do anything. Then, I ran to Kissimmee and started flipping pads. I got the rest of them in the pads,” said Smith.
