Douglas Lake is home sweet home for DeFoe

DeFoe decided to try some spots he never touched the previous day and the move paid off with his three biggest fish of the day.

DANDRIDGE, Tenn.  Consistency has put Ott DeFoe in position to win his first Bassmaster event on his home waters of Douglas Lake.

“Every big tournament we have had here I have done well but I have yet to win one,” said DeFoe, a Bassmaster Elite Series pro from Knoxville, Tenn. “I have made the Top 12 in every one of them . . . so I want to close the dang deal one time. This lake is very hard to be real consistent on. A couple of those 4 1/2-, 5- or 5 1/2-pound bites are what makes you have a 20- to 21-pound day. So it is hard to be consistent here with all 4-pounders.”

After catching a 19-pound, 3-ounce limit Thursday, DeFoe backed up that catch with a 19-1 bag Friday to take over the lead in the pro division of the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open. “Yesterday I said I was a little frustrated, although I was thankful for what I had. It was exactly the opposite today, I was so blessed,” said Defoe, who moved into the lead with 38-4.
