Charlie Baldwin and Benny Lanning took first place in the May 20 R&R tournament at Sinclair.

“We were keying on shallow grass, and both of us were throwing a spinnerbait,” said Charlie. “There were still a few shad in the grass, but that bite is about gone.”

Charlie was throwing a white 3/8-oz. Ol’ Nellie spinnerbait with gold Colorado and Indiana blades.

“We just threw in the grass and worked it out — most of the bites came on the end,” said Charlie. “We were up the Oconee.”

The team also caught a few fish on lime-colored Trick Worms, just dead-sticking in these grassy areas.

Aaron Batson had big fish for the tournament, a nice 6.56-pounder.
