Robert Mixon of Lexington, North Carolina, weighed in a two-day cumulative total of 10 bass totaling 33 pounds, 14 ounces, to win the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) North Carolina Division Super Tournament on High Rock Lake. Mixon took home $7,316 for his efforts.

“I started out throwing crankbaits along rocky banks Saturday but couldn’t get a bite,” said Mixon, who logged his first win in BFL competition. “I arrived at a pier and decided to run a black Zoom Magnum Trick Worm. I caught a 5-pound bass at the first pier, and a 4-pounder from the second.

“By 11 a.m., the pier bite had slowed down, so I went out to some main-lake points in about 8 to 9 feet of water,” Mixon continued. “I used a green-pumpkin Trick Worm and hit about a dozen different points. I was able to catch three more keepers, including another 5-pounder. Those five bites were the only bites I had all day.”

On Sunday, Mixon said he returned to the piers and caught three keepers on the green-pumpkin Trick Worm. Around noon, he headed back out to the main-lake points to round out his limit.

“My last bite was at 1 p.m., and I brought in what I had,” said Mixon. “They weren’t as big as they were Saturday, but my spots still produced.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

               1st:          Robert Mixon, Lexington, N.C., 10 bass, 33-14, $5,316 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus
