Jamey Black wins Pro Division on Lake Ouachita


Jamey topped 73 other anglers by catching 15.34lbs. He earned $5000 for the event and has positioned himself for a great AOY race again this year where in 2018, he finished 2nd!

Jamey commented he only had one small spotted bass at 10:30am, so he made a move shallower and up in the water column where he ended up catching one of his fish on a DT6 crankbait in the red craw color and the rest on his Blacks Custom Lures Widow Make with 3.3″ Keitech swimbaits.

Huey Applegate gets second place at Lake Ouachita

Huey Applegate 2nd place MBOA #1 2019

Huey had a great event catching 15.22lbs. He earned $1500 for the event.

Huey commented he started deep and once the sun came out he moved shallow with a grass jig and caught a big one real quick which ended up messing up the next two hours for him as he couldn’t duplicate the bite. He went back deep with a football jib and caught fish the rest of the day culling up to the 15.22lbs. A great catch on a tough day.

Chris Darby gets 3rd place at Lake Ouachita

Chris Darby gets 3rd at MBOA #1 2019

Darby had shoes on in the 45* weather and was able to catch 14.70lbs. He earned $1100 for the event.

Chris commented starting off with an A-rig and catching a lot of fish but not a lot of size, so he switched to a deep spoon in 40′ of water and started upgrading his catch.
