Billy Skinner of Lake Havasu City, Ariz., weighed five bass totaling 17 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win the Rayovac FLW Series Western Division event presented by Mercury on Lake Havasu with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 59 pounds, 5 ounces. For his victory, Skinner earned $40,000.
Skinner caught the majority of his bass on a Chatterbait targeting a natural spawning flat but the wind messed up his primary area on the final day so he had to run and gun and started fishing grass and man made cover to catch his biggest stringer of the week and win the even by 12 pounds.
