Lake of the Ozarks Bass Fishing League 18 May 19

Lake Lotawana’s Carl Wins Co-angler Division
OSAGE BEACH, Mo. (May 20, 2019) – Boater Adam Boehle of Warrenton, Missouri, caught five bass Saturday weighing 20 pounds, 12 ounces, to win the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) tournament on Lake of the Ozarks. Boehle pocketed $4,938 for his win in the event presented by Navionics and 250 points in the Ozark Division presented by Bassing Bob standings. The winner of the division’s Angler of the Year title after five tournaments will win $3,000.
“The competition in the Ozark division is some of the best in the nation and to just compete alongside these guys is an honor, but to actually win is quite the feat,” said Boehle, who earned his first career BFL victory. “It definitely feels real good and I’ll be thinking about this tournament for awhile.”
Boehle said he fished from the Glaize Arm of the lake to the dam, throwing a ¾-ounce green-pumpkin-colored Crock-O-Gator Reaction Jig with a Strike King Rage Structure Bug, a 5-inch shad-colored Zoom swimbait and a gizzard shad-colored 6th Sense crankbait.
“I was keying on the shad spawn in the morning, then switched to points,” Boehle said. “I think I had 12 keepers throughout the day, with the majority coming on the swimbait. I made a bait change mid-morning and caught two big ones on the crankbait. I still needed a kicker, so I went flipping with the Crock-O-Gator jig and caught my biggest of the day, a 5½-pounder.
“I need to make sure to give credit to Jim Dill, owner of the Crock-O-Gator bait company,” Boehle went on to say. “My jig order didn’t come in before the event, and Jim was fishing in this event. He hooked me up with a couple of jigs, no big deal. That jig was what I caught my kicker on and turned out to be what won me the tournament.”

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. 24-26 BFL Regional Championship on Grand Lake in Grove, Oklahoma.

The 2019 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 be held May 30-June 1 at the Potomac River in Marbury, Maryland, and is hosted by the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism and the Commissioners of Charles County. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
