KINGMAN - The team of Jimmy and Johnny Hererro bested a number of other two-person teams while fishing in the local "Poor Boys" tournament at Park Moabi on the Colorado River near Needles, Calif.

The Hererro team brought in a five-fish limit of smallmouth and largemouth bass that weighed 14.5 pounds and included the tournament's big fish that weighed 3.48 pounds.

Jimmy Hererro said they caught 17 fish during the tournament, six of them largemouth and 11 smallmouths. But of interest was that none of their winning catch was caught on beds.

"All the fish we brought to the scales were pre-spawn bass that were in staging areas," Jimmy said.

The Hererro team used locally manufactured tube baits from Canyon Plastics to make their winning catches.

Second place went to the team of Frankie Mueller and Frank Viramontes. Their five-fish limit weighed 13.9 pounds.

Mueller said they caught a lot of their fish on plastic frogs, though they caught a number of bass on beds with other plastic baits.

"We had a great pre-fish there, but we just couldn't get those big fish we had seen or caught during the tournament," Mueller said.

All the fish caught in the tournament were released after they were weighed.
