Grand Lake Bass Fishing League Division Finale 8 Sept 2018

NORMANS COALE WINS T-H MARINE FLW BASS FISHING LEAGUE OKIE DIVISION FINALE ON GRAND LAKE
Broken Arrows Weir Takes Co-angler Title
GROVE, Okla. (Sept. 10, 2018) Boater Dane Coale of Norman, Oklahoma, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Okie Division tournament on Grand Lake Sunday with a two-day cumulative catch of 10 bass weighing 33 pounds, 3 ounces. For his win, Coale earned $8,904.
Coale said he had a lot of success in practice with Spro Mike McClelland RkCrawler 55 and MD 55 crankbaits in Green Craw and Red Crawfish colors, but ended up casting something completely new on Saturday.
I caught a huge alligator gar with the crankbait and broke it off, said Coale, who earned his first win in FLW competition. I reached down and grabbed a shaky-head rig and caught a keeper a couple of casts later. I rotated in another worm, but didnt get a bite. I went back to the shaky-head and caught a 4-pounder and basically never put it down.
Coale said he used Zoom Trick Worms on 5/16- and -ounce green-pumpkin-colored Buckeye Lures Magnum Series Spot Remover heads. He rotated through a couple of colors including green-pumpkin and Tilapia Magic, which he dipped in chartreuse, and Plum Apple.
I started fishing south of Sailboat Bridge Saturday, said Coale. I fished the tips of main-lake points and bluff ends all the way to the back of Horse Creek, where I caught a key 4-pounder around 1:30 p.m. On my way back to takeoff I did the exact same thing but only at spots Id caught fish at.
On Sunday I had eight rods on the deck and they all had shaky-head rigs on them, continued Coale. I fished a bit more down the banks of the points and bluff ends than I did Saturday and it paid off. I got a couple of key 3-pounders fishing 40 yards away from the points in spots that I hadnt fished.
Coale used G. Loomis Heavy and Medium-Heavy NRX Casting rods, 12-, 15- and 17-pound-test Seaguar AbrasX line and Lews reels. He attributed his win to a couple of different factors first, that the dock and brush pile bite was off, and second, how well his MinnKota Ultrex trolling motor handled the wind and waves.
My MinnKota Ultrex was key. I had to fish in the wind Saturday and most of the day Sunday and Spot Lock kept me stationary, said Coale. I could take my foot off of it and land a fish when I needed to.
The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

The top 45 boaters and co-anglers in the region based on point standings, along with the five winners in each qualifying event, will be entered in the Oct. 25-27 BFL Regional Championship on Lake of the Ozarks in Osage Beach, Missouri. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard and $20,000, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard.
The 2018 BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six regional tournaments where they are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing the BFL All-American. The 2019 BFL All-American will take place May 30-June 1 on the Potomac River in Marbury, Maryland.

pretty tough fishing when darrel robertson only caught 9 keeps in 2 days of fishing.  i could understand not having big enough bass, but to not have at least the limit each day says catching there is not the best right now.

Something about this year. I just fished a championship down here where six fish in two days won...

It's brutal. Grand Lake has a ton of options and it's hard to say that there was too much fishing pressure because of the size of the lake. I'm with you, 9 keepers means it was tough
