John Mobley of Macclenny, Florida, brought a three-bass limit to the scale Saturday weighing 20 pounds, 6 ounces to win the 2020 Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine event at the Harris Chain of Lakes in Leesburg, Florida. For his victory, Mobley earned $3,926.

The tournament was the fourth of five events in the Gator Division presented by A.R.E. Truck Caps.

“This is my first year fishing BFLs, and I’m super pumped to get a win,” says Mobley, who currently sits in third place in the Gator Division Angler of the Year race.

“I locked down to Lake Griffin and was catching them in hydrilla mats and lily pads,” Mobley says. “I was flipping all day. I stumbled upon the bluegill bedding in the pads and that was the key – matching what the fish were eating.”

Mobley flipped hydrilla mats with a Texas-rigged Missile Baits D Bomb (black and blue) with a 1-ounce tungsten weight ,and caught his fish out of the pads with a 1-ounce Medlock jig with the D Bomb as a trailer.
