Todd Langford of Great Falls, Virginia, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Shenandoah Division tournament on the Potomac River Saturday after catching a five-bass limit weighing 15 pounds, 2 ounces. Langford took home $2,600 for his efforts.

Langford says he fished mid-river, in Occoquan Bay. He caught them out of heavy grass mats using a Texas-rigged green-pumpkin-colored Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver, paired with a 1¾-ounce weight.

“I really fished one area where you could get bit on– the river is fishing tough right now,” says Langford, who notched his first career win in FLW competition. “The area was probably 500 yards, but had key spots within the stretch. There was some moving water in those spots and the high tide helped.”

Langford’s bait was rigged on a straight shank hook via snell knot, tied to 65-pound-test PowerPro Super8Slick braided line on a 7-foot, 11-inch Halo Twilite Series heavy–action flipping rod.

“I caught 7 or 8 keepers during the tournament,” says Langford. “They bit best when the water was moving – at the end of the incoming tide and the beginning of the outgoing tide.”

Langford went on to say that he caught a key fish in the very back of a creek during low tide around 1:30 p.m. using a white 3/8-ounce Z-Man Evergreen ChatterBait Jack Hammer with a white Reaction Innovations Skinny Dipper trailer.
