John Gipson (Battle Ground, Ind.) and Tom Noe (Benton Harbor, Mich.) won the R&B South Division Tournament on Lake Freeman recently.
Gipson and Noe caught 12.79 pounds by sight fishing spawning fish on the main lake and working spinnerbaits around stumps to trigger bedding bass that they couldn't see.
Rick and Jennifer Kedik (Niles) had a limit of five bass, including one smallmouth, within the first two hours to win the Casting Couples opener ($270) at Pine and Stone lakes in LaPorte, Ind.
Seventeen teams completed with five limits reported and every team weighed in a keeper bass.
