Seeger wins $5000 On The Ohio River

Cody Seeger won the American Bass Anglers Ram Truck Open Series Ohio Division tournament held 07/08/2017.  Running out of Tanner’s Creek park in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Cody weighed in a five bass limit for 9.07 pounds. He anchored his catch with a bass that weighed 2.91 pounds. For the Boater Division victory, Seeger took home a check for $5000.00. 

“I caught probably 17 fish today but most were shorts. I caught about seven keepers.  What really helped me was I came up last week when the river was down and I marked some wood that’s now in 6-7 feet of water. I picked the wood apart using a tube and a beaver.”  Said Seeger.

In second for the boaters, Christopher Combess of Cleves, Ohio weighed in a five bass limit weighing 9.05 pounds. He anchored his limit with a bass that weighed in at 2.55 pounds. He collected $600.00 for the effort. 

 “I caught six bass today culling once. I caught them on a worm and a buzzbait.”  Said Combess.  

Jake Poffenberger of Brookville, Ohio took third place with a five bass limit weighing in at 8.25 pounds. He anchored his catch with a bass that weighed 2.43 pounds. Jake collected $475.00.

 “I caught probably eight keepers today along with 6-7 short fish. I was fishing shallow, flipping a tube and throwing a spinnerbait.”  Said Poffenberger.  

Finishing fourth, Josh Smith of Hamilton, Ohio weighed in a five bass limit weighing 7.69 pounds.

Rounding out the top five Garry Kincaid of Martinsville, Indiana weighed in a five bass limit weighing 7.62 pounds.

Josh Smith of Hamilton, Ohio weighed in the biggest bass for the boaters. Smith’s bass weighed in at 4.30 pounds. Smith collected $380.00 for the catch.

In the Co-Angler Division, Edward Backs of Troy, Ohio won with three bass weighing 4.03 pounds. Backs sealed his victory with a 2.07 pound kicker to pocket a check for $500.00  

“I was fishing baits different from the baits my boater was using. I caught one on a crankbait, one on a worm and one on a hair jig.” Said Backs.

Taking second for the co-anglers, Jason Skipworth of Harrison, Ohio weighed in two bass for 3.90 pounds. Skipworth collected $350.00 for the effort.

“I was fishing a jig on the main river. I caught probably 20 fish but only had two that would keep.” Said Skipworth.

Taking third for the co anglers Tim Cukovecki of Dayton, Ohio weighed in three bass that weighed 3.39 pounds. 

Finishing fourth was Dennis Cruse of Columbus, Ohio who weighed in two bass for 3.36 pounds. Also for having the biggest bass for the co anglers at 2.39 pounds Cruse won $65.00 for the catch.
