Two Tie At Bass Fishing League Tournament on Indian Lake


LAKEVIEW, Ohio (May 13, 2013) – Bob Logan of Waynesfield, Ohio, and Cody Seegar of Lewistown, Ohio, both weighed a five-bass limit totaling 11 pounds, 6 ounces Saturday to tie for first place at the Bass Fishing League Buckeye Division tournament on Indian Lake. For their victory, Logan and Seegar each earned $3,116, with Logan also receiving a $2,000 Ranger Cup bonus.
     “I fished back in the game reserve,” said Logan. “I targeted the lily pad fields. I stayed in one area for the entire day. It was a nice stretch – a few hundred yards long. I just fished around it, in a circle, for the entire day. These fish were post-spawn and were hungry.”
     Logan said that all of the fish that he weighed in fell prey to a black and blue-colored Strike King Lures jig, trailered with a black/blue flake-colored Strike King Rage Tail Craw.
     “The key for me was just sticking it out in that area,” Logan went on to say. “I only caught around 10 fish, and there was a pretty big dry spell in the middle of the day. I ground it out, though, and it paid off.”
     Seegar could not be reached for comment on his winning pattern.  Rounding out the top 10 pros were:
            3rd:   Michael Powell Jr., Cincinnati, Ohio, five bass, 11-3, $1,383
