GALLATIN, Tenn. – Boater Adam Wagner of Cookeville, Tennessee, brought a two-day total of 10 bass to the scale Sunday weighing 27 pounds, 8 ounces, to win the two-day T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Music City Division super-tournament on Old Hickory Lake. Wagner earned $4,949 for his efforts.

“I caught all of my fish up the lake – in Bledsoe and Bartons Creeks – on both days,” said Wagner, who earned his 13th career win as a boater in BFL competition. “I caught around eight keepers each day, flipping a green-pumpkin-colored Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver to scattered wood on flats in the backs of the creeks.”

Wagner managed to get a big kicker bite each day – a 4-pounder on day one, and a 5-pounder on day two – that helped pad his weight.

“There were a couple of boats around me, but I think I was just hitting spots that were tough to hit,” Wagner said. “There would be one little piece of wood on a 3-acre flat, and most people would run right by it. But I would work hard to find these little pieces of wood and there was usually a fish on it.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

 1st: Adam Wagner, Cookeville, Tenn., 10 bass, 27-8, $4,949

 2nd: Mark Condron, Winchester, Tenn., 10 bass, 26-7, $2,915

 3rd: Josh Tramel, Smithville, Tenn., 10 bass, 25-4, $1,400

 4th: Barry Whitaker, Hartsville, Tenn., 10 bass, 24-0, $875

 5th: Mickey Beck, Lebanon, Tenn., 10 bass, 23-9, $750

 6th: Jason Dies, Lebanon, Tenn., seven bass, 23-3, $687

 7th: Brandon Edel, Hendersonville, Tenn., 10 bass, 22-12, $625

 8th: Daniel Johnson, Lebanon, Tenn., 10 bass, 21-10, $562

 9th: Joel Trevino, Mount Juliet, Tenn., 10 bass, 20-3, $500

 10th: Tony Eckler, Lebanon, Tenn., seven bass, 16-6, $437

Condron caught a 5-pound, 13-ounce bass – the heaviest of the event in the Boater Division – and earned the event’s Boater Big Bass award of $390.

Sparta, Tennessee’s Ricky England won the Co-angler Division and $2,075 Sunday after catching a two-day total of six bass weighing 12 pounds, 6 ounces.

The top 10 co-anglers were:

 1st: Ricky England, Sparta, Tenn., six bass, 12-6, $2,075

 2nd: Teddy Baggett, Nashville, Tenn., eight bass, 12-2, $937

 3rd: Rene Gonzalez, Smyrna, Tenn., five bass, 11-0, $675

 4th: Donnie Rogers, Lebanon, Tenn., four bass, 10-2, $437

 5th: Darryl Humphrey, Murfreesboro, Tenn., five bass, 9-2, $375

 6th: Scott Marshall, Lebanon, Tenn., four bass, 9-1, $539

 7th: Justin Kimmel, Athens, Ga., four bass, 7-13, $462

 8th: Scott Smith, Crossville, Tenn., five bass, 7-12, $281

 9th: Robert Henze, La Vergne, Tenn., three bass, 6-6, $250

 10th: Jason Barr, Woodlawn, Tenn., three bass, 4-12, $319

Marshall caught the largest bass in the Co-angler Division, a fish weighing in at 3 pounds, 10 ounces. The catch earned him the event’s Co-angler Big Bass award of $195.

The T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Music City Division super-tournament on Old Hickory Lake was hosted by the Sumner County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

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. 3-5 BFL Regional Championship on Lake Hartwell presented by Navionics in Seneca, South Carolina. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518L with a 200-horsepower outboard and $20,000, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518L with a 200-horsepower outboard.

The 2019 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 2020 BFL All-American will be held April 30-May 2 at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina, and is hosted by Visit Anderson. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
