Byron Kenney of Griffin, Georgia, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 12 pounds, 14 ounces Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Bulldog Division Super Tournament on Lake Oconee with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 29 pounds, 15 ounces. For his victory, Kenney earned $5,126.

“My strategy for this tournament was different from what I’ve done on this lake in the past,” said Kenney of his second career win in FLW competition. “I basically put my trolling motor down and fished as many docks as I could.

“I started at mid-lake areas on day one and worked my way south,” continued Kenney. “I targeted seawalls in the morning and docks for the remainder of the day using a green-pumpkin jig with a green-pumpkin Strike King Rage Craw as a trailer. I ended up weighing nine of my 10 bass that I brought to the scale off of it.”

Kenney said he followed a similar pattern on day two but focused on different areas of the lake.

“I caught nearly 10 keepers each day, but lost a few good bass as well,” said Kenney. “I thought the misses might cost me the tournament, but luckily, they didn’t.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Byron Kenney, Griffin, Ga., 10 bass, 29-15, $5,126

2nd:         Michael Conley, Bainbridge, Ga., 10 bass, 27-3, $2,563

3rd:          Mark Holloway, Madison, Ga., 10 bass, 22-1, $1,709

4th:          Kip Carter, Social Circle, Ga., 10 bass, 21-15, $1,196

5th:          Wendell Grantham, Macon, Ga., 10 bass, 20-9, $1,025

6th:          Grant Kelly, Milledgeville, Ga., 10 bass, 20-8, $940

7th:          Allen Armour, Cumming, Ga., seven bass, 17-2, $854

8th:          David Millsaps, Ranger, Ga., eight bass, 17-0, $769

9th:          Robert Dees, Bonaire, Ga., eight bass, 16-11, $683
