Stinson fished the mid lake in brush in 12-15 feet of water using homemade spinnerbaits to catch his fish. Second place and $1360 went to Michael of Paris, Tennessee, for four bass weighing 13-4. Hearn fished up river using a 3/8 ounce white titanium spinnerbait around brush in 8-12 feet of water.

Bob Wiles of Huntington, WV, won the Abu Garcia Big Bass Award of $1,000 for a 5 pound, 10 ounce bass. Jack Gross of Gray, KY, Jimmy Mize of Ben Lomond, AR, is leading the Mountain Arkie Division’s Ranger Millennium big bass race for the year with a bass weighing 6 pounds, 4 ounces. The Ranger boat owner who catches the largest bass in each Red Man division over the course of the season, will qualify to enter the Ranger M1 Millennium tournament.

Gene Bledsoe of Grady, AR, won the Berkley Powerbait award a package of baits valued at $325 for the highest weight caught on Powerbait or Frenzy lures with 9 pounds, 8 ounces.

At the completion of the six Red Man qualifying events, the top 30 anglers, determined on a basis of pounds and points, will move onto Regional Championship competition. There they will compete against the top 30 fishermen from three other divisions for a Dream Rig consisting of a Chevy truck and a full-rigged Ranger bass boat powered by an Evinrude or Johnson outboard (only two divisions compete in the Western Regional for a fully-rigged Ranger bass boat) and a spot in the Red Man All-American in Hot Springs, Arkansas, May 8-13, 2000, where the winner will receive $100,000.

The rookie advancing farthest along the Red Man Trail will win the Old Milwaukee NA Rookie-of-the-Year Award.
