Smith wins big over the weekend

Andalusia local Michael M. Smith brought a two-day total of 10 bass to the scale weighing 40 pounds, 4 ounces to win the Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine Bama Division Super-Tournament at Lake Eufaula. For his victory, Smith earned $6,329.

“The key to this win was running as many places as I could where I had found big fish over the past couple months,” said Smith. “I probably pulled the trolling motor up more than fifty times today and the key was to just keep moving.

“Almost every fish I caught this weekend was on the first or second cast on a spot, so if I’d made five casts and hadn’t caught one, I’d move somewhere else,” Smith continued. “I spent a lot of time practicing up here and finding as many places as I could and it certainly paid off.”

Smith said this was his third BFL win and he was excited to get a win on one of his home lakes.

“Out deep I was cranking a 6th Sense C20 and C15 Crankbait in a custom color, so I had something a little different than anyone else on the lake,” Smith said. “I’ve run my Mercury outboard all over this place the past two days. Having great equipment definitely helps, as well as using products you’re confident in and trusting what you’ve got.”

1st: Michael M. Smith of Andalusia, Ala, 10 bass, 40-4, $6,329
