Connor Rushing went into Friday only three ounces from the lead and said he caught all his first-day (Wednesday) fish in the first 15 minutes, then caught two 3-pounders on a June bug-colored Shongaloo 10-inch worm. He said he used a Missile Baits’ D-Bomb to catch his two heaviest bass on the final day.

The tournament qualified the top Boater and Nonboater anglers from each of the eight Central Region states.

Missouri angler Jay Beffa rallied from 16th place on Friday’s final round of the Central Regional with a Toledo Bend-like five-bass catch weighing just shy of 20 pounds to take home the $5,000 first-place prize money in the Boater Division and earn the right to represent his home state in the Nation Championship coming up in November. Beffa’s three-day total was 35-12.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 9)

FAIR. Water slightly stained; 76 degrees; 0.58 feet high. Largemouth bass are good in clearer water skirting vegetation and mid-depth brush around 14 feet on Carolina rigs, deeper larger crankbait, and jigs. Striped bass are slow moving fishing mid lake and deeper than any other time of year. White bass are fair in deep brush, especially around islands of vegetation using Alabama rigs. Crappie are good preferring jigs over minnows in shallower over brush and using docks. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
