Scott Dobson of Clarkston, Michigan, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 21 pounds, 6 ounces Saturday to win the first Walmart Bass Fishing League Michigan Division tournament of 2015 on Lake St. Clair. For his victory, Dobson earned $5,804.

“I’m happy with the win, but it didn’t come easy,” said Dobson. “The wind was blowing so hard I was having trouble anchoring. Luckily I was able to put something together. 

“A lot of fish were spawning, but the waves kept me from getting down to those spots. So, I focused on postspawn areas that held baitfish up north near the St. Croix River,” continued Dobson. “I knew the fish were biting but the elements shook things up. Typically I catch 30 to 40 fish in a day but Saturday I only caught six keepers and culled once.”

Dobson said he caught his fish using a chartreuse and shad-colored Lucky Craft jerkbait and a Megabass Vision 110 Magnum jerkbait for fish that were in the current.

“The Lucky Craft did better with the wind. I got a little more distance out of it,” said Dobson.

“After all was said and done I knew I had a shot at a top-5 finish,” Dobson said. “The key for me was my Dobyns 684CB jerkbait rod, which definitely helped me seal the deal. It’s really forgiving.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Scott Dobson, Clarkston, Mich., five bass, 21-6, $3,804 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus
