Ryan Powroznik of Prince George, Virginia, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League Piedmont Division tournament on the James River. For his victory, Powroznik earned $7,507.

Powroznik said that he caught nearly 12 keepers on the James by targeting wood and grass in 3 to 5 feet of water.

“I caught two of my biggest fish using a black and blue Shooter Lures jig trailered with a black and blue-colored Zoom Super Chunk,” said Powroznik, who earned the second BFL series win of his career. “After the first one bit at 9:30 a.m., I just kept hacking away looking for the big ones.”

Powroznik said the majority of his fish bit on the Shooter jig, but a key bite came on a black and chartreuse-colored custom crankbait later in the day.

“I ran to a few more brushpiles to catch a limit before heading in. I also had found a good bite in some rocks,” said Powroznik. “When you’re from the area, you always keep a few spots in your back pocket in case you need to grab a few more fish.”

  The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Ryan Powroznik, Prince George, Va., five bass, 17-15, $4,507 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus + $1,000 Mercury Bonus

7th:          Tim Wiltfong, Wake Forest, N.C., five bass, 12-13, $751
