EUFAULA, Okla. — Seeking shelter from the storm proved key to Josh Wray’s B.A.S.S. Nation Central Divisional win Friday on Oklahoma’s Lake Eufaula.

On many parts of the 100,000-plus acre lake, heavy rain and persistent lightning prompted several competitors to seek shelter for an hour or more. But while they were waiting it out, Wray was filling out his limit — without getting wet.

“When the storm hit, we pulled up into a big box culvert at this spot I’d been saving,” said the angler from Omaha, Ark. “Current was funneling through there from the main lake, going away from the nose of my boat, and I was making casts from inside there — out to the mouth of the culvert — and they were stacked up there. I filled out my limit, and we didn’t even get wet.”

His five-fish limit weighed 14 pounds, 9 ounces, which was more than enough to best Day 2 leader Preston Frazell, of Cleveland, Okla., who brought only 11-13 to the scales. Wray’s three-day total weight was 41 pounds, 5 ounces. Frazell’s total was 39-9.
