MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 14, 2015) – Jason Wilson of Lincolnton, North Carolina, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds, 14 ounces Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League North Carolina Division Super Tournament on Lake Norman with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 29 pounds, 4 ounces. For his victory, Wilson earned $6,817.
“I started out each day by throwing a custom-colored Rapala DT 10 crankbait near rocks and stumps and caught a couple of key fish,” said Wilson. “The rest of them came flipping a Jason’s Magic Craw-colored E.R. Lures jig around docks. I believe I weighed two fish off the crankbait each day and three from the jig.”
Wilson said his biggest fish came around 11 a.m. each morning of the tournament.
“The bigger fish definitely preferred the jig near the docks,” said Wilson.
