Gilder Wins Top Co-angler Prize at Louisiana Opener

Eddy Gilder of Sulphur, LA was the co-angler champion of the Ram Truck Open Series event held on February 27, 2016 at Toledo bend. Gilder’s 8.72 pound win was worth $1800. “We were way up on the north end of the lake and stayed up there all day. We pretty much only fished two spots and targeted cypress trees in about three feet of water the entire day. I caught my first keeper on a Chatterbait, the second keeper on a Sweet Beaver, and the third keeper on a wacky rigged Senko. The third keeper was my biggest. I had four bites all day. My boater had a pretty good day catching 10-12 fish, but one of them stands out to me. He set the hook on one flipping a jig and it broke off. Not thinking she would bite again, I pitched my Chatterbait up to the tree and she bit. I got her in the boat and his jig was still stuck in her jaw. I apologized to him for catching it and he said it was fine, but wanted his jig back,” said Gilder. ​​​​​​​

Gagnard Takes Home Over $5000 at Toledo Bend

Zack Gagnard of Pineville, LA won the Louisiana Division Ram Truck Open Series opener at Toledo Bend on February 27, 2016. Gagnard weighed in a 21.04 pound limit of bass to win $5325. “I started down south in Housin Bay, flipping a ½ ounce black/blue V&M Pacemaker jig and caught three. I moved out deep in the mouth of White Oak and switched to a ¾ ounce V&M jig to limit out and cull up. Then, I stopped in Pirate’s Cove and caught a five pounder off of a bed for my last cull. I had a decent day catching about 20 to 25 fish and culling about 10 times. On Thursday, I had around 26 pounds with one of them pushing 10 pounds. Today was a lot different. High pressure really changed the bite, but weather was beautiful. This tournament was ran very smoothly and the entire ABA staff did a great job, especially with take-off this morning,” said Ganard.
