T.J. Maglio of La Crosse, Wisconsin, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Great Lakes Division tournament on the Mississippi River Sunday with a two-day cumulative catch of 10 bass weighing 31 pounds, 3 ounces. For his win, Maglio earned $6,295.

“I’ve been looking forward to this Super Tournament all year. This tournament is one of my favorites because it’s in the fall and provides a bigger payout,” says Maglio, who earned his first win in FLW competition. “The river rose about a foot from takeoff on Saturday to weigh-in on Sunday – it definitely made it tougher.”

Maglio states that the water he was fishing in Pool No. 8 managed to stay clear during the two days of competition. He says he caught all of his fish on moving baits – ChatterBaits, Rat-L-Traps and swim jigs, all in white or shad colors.

“In my rotation I would hit spots two or three times a day with different bait presentations,” says Maglio. “I caught fish from three different areas – grass, current seams and rocks. The largest shad were in the areas I was fishing and that is what the bass were feeding on.”
