DEL RIO, Texas — Minnesota angler Andy Young topped the hard-charging Stephen Browning to win the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open on Lake Amistad by a mere ounce.

The day started with Young in second place behind Shreveport, La., angler Randy Allen, who has a ranch 25 miles north of Del Rio and frequently fishes Amistad.

“I thought I was fishing for second,” said Young.

“The local hammer (Allen) had 18-pounds each day and I was about 11 pounds behind so I just went out and did the best I could.”

The best he could do ended up being a 13-pound, 10-ounce limit that gave Young the winning total of 39-6. While Allen caught only one keeper and dropped to third place with 37-12, Browning caught the heaviest limit of the day (14-6) and climbed into second with 39-5.

“This is a lifelong dream,” said Young of his victory and qualifying for the 2015 Bassmaster Classic if he fishes the two remaining Central Opens.
