ZWOLLE, La. – Boater Glen Freeman of Zwolle, caught a five-bass limit weighing 24 pounds, 12 ounces, Saturday to win the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Cowboy Division event on Toledo Bend Lake. For his efforts, Freeman took home $6,895.

“I concentrated on points where the bass were moving up and feeding at certain times of the day. You just had to be there at the right time,” said Freeman, who is now tied for second on the All-Time BFL wins list with 10 career wins in BFL competition. “I was on the north end of the lake, sitting in 5 to 6 feet of water and throwing to 2 to 3 feet. I had 9 or 10 points and just rotated through them.”

Freeman said he used a green-pumpkin-colored ½-ounce Johnston jig with a Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw trailer of the same color to catch approximately 15 keepers throughout the day.

“They bit the best mid-morning,” said Freeman. “The wind was a big deal for me. I had to have some wind to help the points – that brought the bass up to feed.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

               1st:          Glen Freeman, Zwolle, La., five bass, 24-12, $4,895 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus

               2nd:         Matthew McArdle, Humble, Texas, five bass, 20-6, $2,448

               3rd:          Lance Duff, Lumberton, Texas, five bass, 19-13, $1,565

               4th:          Jeff Wooldridge, Chandler, Texas, five bass, 18-10, $1,096

               5th:          Darold Gleason, Many, La., five bass, 18-9, $939

               6th:          Stephen Reitzell, Colfax, La., five bass, 18-2, $861

               7th:          Josh Dunaway, Sulphur, La., five bass, 18-1, $783

               8th:          Nick Lebrun, Bossier City, La., five bass, 17-10, $704

The top 45 boaters and co-anglers in the region based on point standings, along with the five winners in each qualifying event, will be entered in the Oct. 25-27 BFL Regional Championship on Lake of the Ozarks in Osage Beach, Missouri. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard and $20,000, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard.

The 2018 BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six regional tournaments where they are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the BFL All-American. The 2018 BFL All-American will be held May 31-June 2 at Cross Lake in Shreveport, Louisiana, and is hosted by the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
