Detroit River Bass Fishing League Finale 15 Sept 2018

Ohio’s Lovin Grabs Co-angler Title
TRENTON, Mich. (Sept. 17, 2018) – Boater Ronnie Goshen Sr. of Belleville, Michigan, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Michigan Division tournament on the Detroit River Sunday with a two-day cumulative catch of 10 bass weighing 51 pounds, 10 ounces. Goshen earned $5,329 for his win.
“This is like a dream come true – I’ve always wanted to win a BFL event,” said Goshen, who had three previous top-10 finishes on the Detroit River in BFL competition. “I used tubes, swimbaits and spinnerbaits and fished rocks and current all over the river.”
Goshen said he used a green pumpkin-colored Impulse Fatty Tube, a LIVETARGET Goby Paddle Tail Swimbait with a ¾-ounce head and a ¾-ounce chartreuse and white-colored custom bullet head spinnerbait. He noted that he was able to catch 25 to 30 keepers each day.
“I’ve got three or four favorite baits and if they wouldn’t hit one I’d throw another,” said Goshen. “I fished in 4- to 15-foot depths and covered a lot of water. It was a run and gun thing – I’d get one here and one there.”
Goshen said he experienced engine problems at the conclusion of the day Saturday, and that his son let him use his boat for the remainder of the event Sunday.
“I was really blessed. Without his help, I would’ve had to use my trolling motor all day (Sunday),” said Goshen.
Goshen said that the Spot-Lock feature on his Minn Kota Ultrex trolling motor was crucial to helping him stay put in the current Saturday, and that his Lowrance electronics helped him pinpoint specific spots to fish.
The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:
               1st:          Ronnie Goshen Sr., Belleville, Mich., 10 bass, 51-10, $5,329
               2nd:         Pat Upthagrove, Monroe, Mich., 10 bass, 49-1, $2,864

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. 18-20 BFL Regional Championship on Kentucky Lake in Gilbertsville, Kentucky. 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.
