Adam Ohms of Edwardsville, Illinois, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 24 pounds, 5 ounces, Saturday to win the fourth FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) LBL Division tournament on Kentucky and Barkley lakes presented by Power-Pole. For his victory, Ohms earned $6,199.

“I won this event doing the exact opposite of what people would expect from a tournament on Kentucky Lake this time of year,” says Ohms, who earned the first win of his FLW career. “There was high water due to rain, so I decided to fish this tournament shallow.

“I spent the day fishing ditches in the backs of creeks north of Paris Landing,” Ohms continues. “There was a strong current coming in that was littered with baitfish and bass that were moving up shallow. I had 22 pounds in the boat by 7:30 a.m.”

Ohms used one bait to catch his limit – a black and blue-colored 3/8-ounce Z-Man ChatterBait.

“Every fish I caught came from less than 2 feet of water,” says Ohms. “They attacked the bait in open water and tried to bring it into the bushes. I didn’t go longer than 10 minutes without catching a fish all day long. I could go back and forth over the same cover and they just kept reloading. It was a lot of fun.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Adam Ohms, Edwardsville, Ill., five bass, 24-5, $4,199 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus

2nd:         Thomas Sandefur, Kuttawa, Ky., five bass, 23-9, $2,100

3rd:          Mark Robbins, Murray, Ky., five bass, 21-7, $1,398

4th:          Josh Malone, Alma, Ill., five bass, 20-13, $980

5th:          Dan Morehead, Paducah, Ky., five bass, 20-10, $1,140

6th:          Robert Behrens Jr., Dyersburg, Tenn., five bass, 20-3, $770

7th:          Craig Hipsher, Benton, Ky., five bass, 20-0, $700

8th:          Jamie Muench, McDonald, Tenn., five bass, 18-9, $630

9th:          John Euler, Chandler, Ind., five bass, 18-7, $560
