Ryan Powroznik of Prince George, Virginia, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 18 pounds even Saturday to win the second FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Shenandoah Division tournament of 2016 on Lake Gaston. For his victory, Powroznik took home $6,665.

“I started out sight-fishing on the lower end of the lake in Pea Hill Creek,” says Powroznik, who earned the third win of his FLW career. “It was just about the only place on the lake where the water wasn’t stained, so I knew I wanted to be there for the tournament. I was able to get two decent bass in the boat using a green-pumpkin-colored Zoom Trick Worm rigged on a custom shaky head.

“Around 9 o’clock I began skipping docks in Pea Hill and Lee’s Creek that had produced for me in the past,” Powroznik continues. “I probably hit 50 of them and used the shaky head to catch my first limit. I almost had my weight by 10:30 a.m.”

Powroznik relocated to the north end of the lake around 1:30 p.m. to fish docks, laydowns and rocks. He caught his final bass with minutes to spare on a green-pumpkin jig rigged with a green-pumpkin Zoom Super Chunk.

“I figured I needed one more bite to push me over the top and that was it,” says Powroznik. “Even though it was just over 3 pounds, it was the difference maker at the scale. Those ounces earned me the win.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Ryan Powroznik, Prince George, Va., five bass, 18-0, $6,665
