After one of the worst winters in twenty five years, and in spite of the reports of a tough bite, we had a great season opener. One hundred and six anglers showed up to the first qualifying tournament to see if they have what it takes.

With a second place finish the previous day in the team series, angler Shawn Freeman took first place in the Solo by fishing the A Rig. Focusing on the creek arms, he fished secondary points and positioned the boat in 25 to 30 ft. of water. At noon, Shawn had only two keepers in the boat when he connected with his biggest fish of the day. That's when the light bulb came on. He then spent 5 to 10 minutes at each spot of similar structure the remainder of the day to amass his winning weight.

After winning the BFL and also the team series with his brother, Mike Fann needs no introduction. Known for swimming a grub on pre-spawn bass, add four more to the mix and he's deadly. Mike reported that the key to his success was fishing the channel swings in 50 to 60 ft. of water, catching the suspended fish at about 30 to 35 ft.

Taking third place was angler Joe Brantley. Everyone knows Mr. Brantley is a tough competitor because of his previous BFL and Central Pro Am Championship wins. But the key to his success at this tournament was the boat loaned to him by Randy Conlon.
We would like to thank all the anglers for supporting AiA. For the sake of our kids, and the future of our beloved sport, please consider supporting your area high school fishing teams also. Thanks again, and we hope to see you all at Lake of the Ozarks in April!
