IUKA, Miss. (Sept. 21, 2015) – Aaron Harrelson of Glen, Mississippi, weighed four bass totaling 18 pounds, 2 ounces, Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Mississippi Division Super Tournament on Pickwick Lake with a two-day total of nine bass weighing 32 pounds, 9 ounces. For his victory, Harrelson earned $6,638.
“I caught my fish in 8-foot depths near grass on a red worm and a chartreuse and white-colored spinnerbait,” said Harrelson of his first career win in FLW competition. “I also caught some on a G-Bait Custom Lures Jig.”
Harrelson said he caught each of his nine keepers over the course of the tournament at his mid-lake area.
“I was fortunate enough to be fishing grass that no one else was on,” said Harrelson “What made it special was a little ditch that ran through the area. It was about 2 feet deeper than the grass around it, and made for a great flipping spot.”
The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:
1st:          Aaron Harrelson, Glen, Miss., nine bass, 32-9, $6,638
2nd:         Kevin Wright, Waterloo, Ala., 10 bass, 32-4, $3,319

The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 50 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Walmart BFL All-American. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Rayovac FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
