Completing the top three is another group from the state of Alabama. The University of Alabama pairing of Jared Turn- bloom and Jake Turnbloom finish in third place with 22.69 pounds. “ It’s awesome, can’t complain about it. Should have done better, but it’s a national event. All of these guys are really really really good fishermen, can’t complain about top three, ” Jared explained. The two found one specific pattern that worked, and fished it con- sistently for both days. That consistency paid off to the tune of 11 pounds both days. “ The only place we could get bit was basically grass that grew off riprap walls up and down bridges. We would basi- cally just start and go up and down them all day. Eventually they would bite. You would go down a stretch three or four times and all of a sudden you would get five or six bites on one pass, ” said Jake. This was a great weekend here at Lake Dardanelle and Rus- sellville, AR. Although the weather threw the anglers a cur- veball, a large majority of the field put together several key bites to create an exciting and competitive event.
