David Lowery wins D72 on Oconee

David Lowery of Milledgeville, Ga took home the Bass Pro Shops Fishing Tour first place trophy and $775 cash for the D72 tournament held on November 30, 2019, at Lake Oconee.   David said he caught his five-fish limit early, using a Big Bite Baits Kamikaze Craw on a quarter ounce shaky head.  His total scale weight was 15.08 pounds, and it was secured by a 5.01 kicker.

Niles Murray caught a 5.69 pounder late in the day on a worm, to win the trophy for Big Bass and the optional cash pot of $390 cash.
There were 39 anglers competing for cash, prizes, and points.  The weather has finally started to cool the water temperature, and all fish were released alive.
