Timmy Poe Wins the MBOA Tournament on the Arkansas River @ Dumas!

The fifth MR. BASS of Arkansas tournament was held on Sunday, on a warm but breezy day on the Arkansas River Dumas pool. Before takeoff as everyone lathered on the bug spray and sunscreen the dock talk was eerily groaning voices of a tough bite.

Pro Timmy Poe wins MBOA on the Arkansas River at Dumas
First place on the Pro side was Timmy Poe with 15.73lbs. Timmy commented finding a sweet spot on his last few hours of practice on Saturday. The fish were positioned on a sand bar near the mouth of Moors Bayou. He was rotating holes throwing “Tasty Shad” colored RC series 3 square bill crank baits and pop R type lures. Both lures where tied to Viscous fishing line.  For Timmy’s great day he earned $1,831.00 plus another $500.00 for Ranger Cup.

Second Place was Chip Hawkins with 13.75lbs with only 3 fish! He commented he had real big fish found on a frog and the bite in practice was much better in the afternoons; however tournament day was a different story. His large fish turned to small fish and his afternoon bite slowed so much that he was unable to Get5, but 3 was good enough for a nice second place check worth $958 plus $228 for the day’s big bass, a 6.25lb brute.

Third Place on the Pro side was Danny Gwinn with 13.69lbs earning him $686.85 plus $152.00 for second big bass a 5.95lb chunk. Danny commented catching over 20 fish on the day all on a green pumpkin jig around rocks.
