KINGMAN - Ryan Chan and Jon Howell put together a five fish bag that weighed 14.94 pounds to win the Kingman Bass Club's monthly fishing tournament.

The tournament was held out of Princess Cove on Lake Mohave.

Despite winds that sometimes made fishing tough, the team managed to catch 20 fish during the one day event. Most all of them were smallmouth bass and the team used a combination of tube baits and crawfish imitating plastic lures to make their catch.

"We were on fish all day, but we just couldn't catch one of big bass that this lake is known for, Chan said. "We caught pre-spawn, post-spawn and even spawning bass during the tournament."

Second place in the 11-boat tournament went to Donnie Scroggins and his father Ray, who brought in a stringer that weighed 14.07 pounds.

Micah Jones and Luke Eggers earned third place with a bag that weighed 14.06 pounds, while Bobby McFadden and Blake Chapman took fourth place with a five fish limit that weighed 13.14 pounds.

Winner of the big fish jackpot was Jones with a lunker that weighed 3.38 pounds. Right behind him was a 3.35-pound fish brought in by the father/son team of Dave Hilton II and Dave Hilton III.

Donnie and Ray Scroggins had a big fish that weighed 3.30 pounds.

Chan noted that every team in the tournament brought in a five fish limit.

"The fishing was really good," Chan said.

The club's next tournament will be on May 10 at Temple Bar on Lake Mead. The pre-tournament meeting will be held in the conference room at the Region III office at 7 p.m. on May 7.
