Ross Barnett Round Two

ATHENS, Ala. – Terry Whittington of Laurel, MS won the American Bass Anglers Open Series Mississippi Division, held May 5th on Ross Barnett Reservoir. Running out of Tommy’s Trading Post with slightly overcast skies and a mild breeze at takeoff, the day gave in to a cloudy rain.  Mild rain, but enough to soak things down and of course, the sun came out at 3 PM for weigh in.  Nevertheless, the shad were spawning, the fish were biting, and it made easy pickings for most of the field.  Over 60 limits were brought to the scales.

Wild Weekend on Ross Barnett

ATHENS, Ala. – Larry Rochelle of Canton, MS won the American Bass Anglers Open Series Mississippi Division, held April 15th on Ross Barnett. Running out of Tommy’s Trading Post and originally scheduled for Saturday, the tournament had been postponed due to severe weather. Gusting winds, heavy rain and tornadoes threatened the area, so the event was postponed, and everyone took cover. The storms turned out to be as bad as forecasted then cleared out of the area to open up the next day for the tournament.  An extreme drop in temperature Sunday morning with post front conditions made it difficult on the anglers but we still had some nice fish brought in.  At the end of the day there were 5 boaters able to break 16 lbs.
