WAGONER, Okla. (April 28, 2014) – Nick Kincaid of Tulsa, Okla., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 20 pounds, 4 ounces Saturday to win the third Walmart Bass Fishing League Okie Division tournament of 2014 on Fort Gibson Lake. For his victory, Kincaid earned $5,830.

      "I've got a fair amount of experience on Fort Gibson, but I don't think I've ever fished there this early in the year before," Kincaid said. "It's usually a lake I only go to in the summertime.

      "I practiced a little bit on Friday and figured out that I could get bit flipping around the wood cover up the river where the water was dirtier," explained Kincaid. "I started up there Saturday morning and got a limit pretty quickly. I pretty much ran that same pattern just upgrading slowly all day. I actually caught my biggest fish of the day with about 15 minutes to go before I had to weigh in."

      Kincaid said that he caught most of his fish flipping a Berkley Havoc Pit Boss around bigger laydowns.

      Rounding out the top 10 pros were:

            2nd:   Earl Hoskins, Burns Flat, Okla., five bass, 19-2, $2,415
            3rd:   Christopher Jones, Bokoshe, Okla., five bass, 18-11, $1,609
            4th:    Thomas Canady, Bartlesville, Okla., five bass, 17-14, $1,127
            5th:    Ken Smith, Dallas, Texas, five bass, 17-11, $966
            6th:    Jeremy Johnson, Henryetta, Okla., five bass, 17-7, $885
            7th:    Walter Andries, Coweta, Okla., five bass, 17-6, $805
            8th:    Bruce Sears, Fort Smith, Ark., five bass, 17-2, $724
            9th:    Brandon Mosley, Choctaw, Okla., five bass, 16-5, $603

      Ron Grider of Edmond, Okla., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win $2,415 in the co-angler division.

      Rounding out the top 10 co-anglers were:

            2nd:   Nathan Colwell, Pryor, Okla., five bass, 14-12, $1,207
            3rd:   Jeff King, Wagoner, Okla., five bass, 14-10, $806

            5th:    Ben Blaschke, Muldrow, Okla., four bass, 12-10, $483
            6th:    Dana Boling, Tulsa, Okla., four bass, 12-8, $443

            10th: Robert Catron, Stilwell, Okla., four bass, 11-11, $268

      The top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Oct. 16-18 Regional Championship on Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Jasper, Texas. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy Silverado, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.

      The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Rayovac FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
