DeFoe dials up victory on Douglas Lake

James Overstreet
Fifth time’s a charm for pro Ott DeFoe, who has fished four other major tournaments here on his home water and come up empty-handed. Saturday’s 10-pound victory margin kicks that monkey to the curb.

DANDRIDGE, Tenn.—Bassmaster Elite Series pro Ott DeFoe got the monkey off his back by finally winning a major tournament on his home waters.

The Knoxville, Tenn., competitor clinched his first victory at Douglas Lake by catching the biggest limit of the tournament (24 pounds, 1 ounce) to finish with 62-5 in the Bass Pro Shops Northern Open.

The pro division winner took home a Triton 19XS/Mercury 200 Pro XS rig valued at $40,000 and $8,021 in cash. This was the fifth major tournament–four Bassmaster events and a PAA tourney—that DeFoe had fished in on his home lake.
