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.
John and Danielle Sabatini (Galveston, Ind.) took second place with 7.29 pounds that included the Lochness Lures Big Bass prize with a 4.79-pound largemouth. The big bass came on a worm fished in 5 feet of water.
