Spinnerbaits, Trick Worms Win R&R Sinclair Tournament
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.
“I caught in on a Zoom Horny Toad,” said Aaron.
Here are the top five.
- Charlie Baldwin & Benny Lanning, 5 fish, 17.36 pounds
- Jim Gooch & Bradley Pass, 5 fish, 17.30 pounds
- Ronny Cantrell & Barry Stokes, 5 fish, 15.87 pounds
