Kevin Runyon won the latest tourney held on October 4th by the Tug Valley Bass Anglers (TVAA). It was the eighth tournament of the 2015 season and held on Yatesville Lake with 31 anglers competing in the event.
Yatesville Lake was at normal pool with a water temperature around 65 degrees.
Weather for the tournament was good with mostly sunny skies and an air temperature in the 70’s.
It was the first day after a fall cold front, but it didn’t seem to bother the fish to bad. There was several good fish caught but it was a little slow at times. Most of the keeper fish were caught in the creeks from 1 to 5 foot of water.
The main pattern for this tournament was to fish top water first thing in the morning, after the sun came out slow down and fish tight to cover with soft plastics, spinnerbaits and crankbaits.
The top finishers are as follows.
1st —Kevin Runyon —- (5 fish) 13.97 lbs.
2nd —Lynn Fields —- (3 fish) 8.52 lbs.
3rd— Lacy Edmiston —- (1 fish) 4.04 lbs.
