Dennis Siggers of Danville, Virginia, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Shenandoah Division tournament on Smith Mountain Lake Saturday after catching a five-bass limit weighing 19 pounds, 1 ounce. For his victory, Siggers earned $2,585 for his victory.

“I would say the key to my win was my 30 years of experience on this lake,” says Siggers, who earned his first career victory in FLW competition. “On Tuesday they filled the lake up, and I saw the bass swimming on the bank lines. So I started working down the bank lines, just throwing a topwater. I knew I’d catch them – I didn’t know that I’d catch 19 pounds – but it all worked out nicely.”

Siggers threw a Rebel Pop-R topwater bait until 10:30 a.m., then switched to a green-pumpkin and purple-colored Zoom Trick Worm

“I would say that I caught around 10 keepers, and of the five that I brought to the scale, three came on the topwater bait and two came on the Trick Worm. My big one came on the Pop-R,” Siggers goes on to say.

 

The top 10 boaters:

 1st: Dennis Siggers, Danville, Va., five bass, 19-1, $2,585

 2nd: Dennis Burdette, Pembroke, Va., five bass, 16-11, $1,375
