Boater Glen Freeman of Zwolle brought a two-day total of 10 bass to the scale weighing 43 pounds, 13 ounces, to win the two-day T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Cowboy Division super-tournament on Sam Rayburn Reservoir Sunday. Freeman earned $8,211 for his efforts.

“I think the key to my win was that I stayed old-fashioned,” said Freeman, who earned his 11th career win in BFL competition. “Nowadays everyone is throwing crankbaits and Carolina rigs, and I feel like the fish hardly see Texas rigs anymore. I was up on the north end – around the Highway 147 bridge, fishing slopes and dropoffs of ridges in 15- to 20-feetof-water.”

Freeman estimated that he caught around 25 keepers throughout the weekend – 15 on day one and 10 on day two. He targeted isolated pieces of timber and brush on the slopes with a redbug-colored, Texas-rigged Mister Twister worm with a ½-ounce Elite Tungsten weight.
