The second ACT tournament was held over the weekend at Lake D’arbonne in northern Louisiana. The fishing, although post-spawn, was great throughout the week as anglers pre-fished the lake, catching and releasing 1000s of quality fish. 54 boats competed for over $51,000 in cash and prizes, including an RT188c Ranger Boat.
Josh Gowan and Alex Rude took home the win with a total two-day weight of 24 pounds. Their winnings included the new Ranger Boat, plus contingency money from B’n’M Poles, Midsouth Tackle, Rockport Rattlers, and Lucas Oil, bringing their total prize value to over $26,000. The B’n’M Poles and Prefish Gear team from Missouri were spider-rigging in 12-14 feet of water through thick stumps. They were using B’n’M BGJP 16 ft. poles and Pro Staff reels with 14 lb. hi-vis P-line, pushing 1/32 oz. heads with a variety of plastics tipped with minnows.
