Jack Faulkner II
June 12, 2017 • MLF • Phoenix Bass Fishing League

Jack Faulkner II of Jacksboro, Tennessee, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Volunteer Division tournament on Cherokee Lake Saturday with a five-bass limit totaling 15 pounds, 5 ounces. For his win, Faulkner took home $3,289.

“I didn’t have anything in the boat until 9 (a.m.),” said Faulkner, who logged his third career-victory in BFL competition. “After that, I caught three on a bone-colored Heddon Zara Spook, all from grassy points.”

Faulkner said all of his key areas were mid-lake, within a mile of the takeoff ramp.

“Around noon, I started fishing a 10-inch, green pumpkin Yamamoto straight-tailed worm and caught three more,” said Faulkner. “They came deeper from the points, but they needed to have some rocks.”

Faulkner said his two largest fish were caught using the worm between noon and 1 p.m.

“I only had six keepers all day, but they were the right size,” said Faulkner.

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

               1st:          Jack Faulkner II, Jacksboro, Tenn., five bass, 15-5, $3,289

               2nd:         Craig Powers, Rockwood, Tenn., five bass, 14-10, $1,644

               3rd:          James Nuckols Jr., Rockwood, Tenn., five bass, 14-1, $1,097

               4th:          Hermilo Salgado, Artemus, Ky., five bass, 13-8, $967

               5th:          Jeremy Swanson, Kingsport, Tenn., five bass, 13-6, $658

               6th:          Eddie Richards, Corbin, Ky., five bass, 13-1, $603

               7th:          Bill Humbard, New Market, Tenn., five bass, 12-6, $548

               8th:          Michael Cantrell, Philadelphia, Tenn., five bass, 12-1, $493

               9th:          Larry Neal, Piney Flats, Tenn., five bass, 11-13, $438

               10th:        Ken Vicchio, Bluff City, Tenn., five bass, 11-12, $684
