David Williams of Maiden, North Carolina, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds even Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Savannah River Division Super Tournament on Clarks Hill Lake with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 29 pounds, 2 ounces. For his victory, Williams earned $7,316.

“Coming into this tournament I wanted to try and cover as much water as I could,” said Williams, who has amassed more than $244,000 in winnings in FLW competition. “I ran from to creek to creek looking for baitfish. I eventually settled into three different areas.

“I targeted any natural cover I could find,” continued Williams. “The water was down nearly 6 feet so a lot of bass were hiding around the rock and wood because of how scarce it was. I used a spinnerbait to catch fish near the cover and the grasslines and a topwater propbait along the shore. When I wanted to slow my pace down, I flipped a TrueSouth Lures jig around docks.”

Williams said he caught seven hefty keepers on day one and 10 smaller keepers on day two. 

“They ended up weighing enough to get me the win,” Williams said.

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          David Williams, Maiden, N.C., 10 bass, 29-2, $5,316 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus

2nd:         Michael Anders, Anderson, S.C., 10 bass, 27-5, $2,658

3rd:          Jayme Rampey, Liberty, S.C., 10 bass, 27-3, $1,774

4th:          Franklin Ramey, Abbeville, S.C., 10 bass, 26-9, $1,240

5th:          David Nichol, Gainesville, Ga., 10 bass, 26-2, $1,063

6th:          Jonathon Webb, Elberton, Ga., eight bass, 25-15, $975

7th:          Furman Thompson, Clayton, Ga., 10 bass, 25-7, $886

8th:          Zack Lamb, Martinez, Ga., 10 bass, 25-6, $797
