Cobb Wins Bass Fishing League Tournament on Lake Hartwell

Cobb Wins Bass Fishing League Tournament on Lake Hartwell Brandon Cobb won the Bass Fishing League Savannah River Division tournament on Lake Hartwell.
 

LAVONIA, Ga. (April 29, 2013) – Brandon Cobb of Greenwood, S.C., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 5 ounces Saturday to win the Bass Fishing League Savannah River Division tournament on Lake Hartwell. For his victory, Cobb earned $6,807.
     “Everything went right for me out there,” said Cobb. “I’ve been close to winning a few times, but it’s such an awesome feeling to finally get a win.
     “I knew that everyone would be targeting the areas where the herring were spawning,” Cobb continued. “During practice I located this small clay point back in a pocket that I knew I would have to myself. I could pull up on it and catch a few solid keepers, then leave for a few hours. The fish would replenish while I was gone, and I was able to pull a few limits out of there.”
 
     Cobb caught an early limit throwing a white Zoom Super Fluke and a Knight’s Custom Lures Tri Blade spinnerbait, then moved shallow and caught a few more keepers swimming a white Knight’s Custom Lures Dock Buster jig.
 
     “I caught around 15 keepers throughout the entire day and culled a few times,” Cobb said. “The key for me was avoiding the lake pressure. My area was not real obvious and I had that little clay point all to myself.”
