Timmy Poe Wins the Mr. Bass of Arkansas Classic on Greers Ferry Lake
|Timmy’s Father, Tim Poe, fished the MR BASS OF ARKANSAS tournament trail 20 + years ago and never got that rare opportunity of everything coming together to win the coveted MBOA Classic but I am certain he was just as happy, standing in beautiful Clinton Arkansas watching as his son Timmy walk off the stage the champion, and the winner of a $43,000.00 Ranger Bass boat powered by a Mercury Outboard!!!|
Timmy had a steady consistent pattern that produced a limit each day of the tournament. He commented that having 5 is what “made the difference.” His pattern had him run down the lake throwing a 5/8oz lucky strike football jig in peanut butter and jelly flavor for smallmouth. The smallmouths were positioned around brush piles in 15 – 20 feet of water. When the sun got high and the bite slowed he would switch to a drop shot around schooling fish. He also commented about catching three key fish during the storm on Saturday throwing a spinnerbait. His jig was tied to 17lb viscous fluorocarbon and his drop shot on 10lb Viscous Braid with a 12lb Viscous fluorocarbon leader.

4th – $2,000.00 Joey Hurley
