The team of Greg Park and Danny Lloyd were able to find some heavyweight largemouth and that made the difference as they won the Kingman Bass Club's monthly bass tournament at Lake Mohave.

A total of 10 teams participated in the one-day tournament, with anglers going out of Princess Cove.

Parker/Lloyd had a five fish limit that weighed 15.75 pounds, barely edging out the team of Donnie and Ray Scroggins, who five fish limit weighed 15.02 pounds. Team Scroggins also had a big fish that weighed 3.48 pounds.

Lloyd said he caught the team's big fish, a largemouth that weighed 3.48 pounds on the third cast of the morning. He was using a top water lure.

Lloyd noted he and Parker had a five-fish limit in the live well by 8:15 a.m.

"The fishing was great," Lloyd said. "There were bedded smallmouths all over the lake."

Lloyd said they fished from Princess Cove to the Davis Dam.

"We caught about 20 bass, but we could have caught more small ones that we saw on beds, but we passed on them as we knew they wouldn't help us for the tournament," the veteran KBC angler said.

The weather was good, and with little wind it was a perfect fishing day on this Colorado River impoundment.

Third place was garnered by the team of Ryan Chan and John Howell.

Their five-fish limit weighed 13.38 pounds. "We just couldn't find a kicker fish," Chan said. He noted that the smallmouth bass were on beds all over the lake, but most were in the 2 pound range.

Big Fish of the tournament was a largemouth that was caught by Dave Hilton. That fish weighed 3.64 pounds and was caught up in Cottonwood Basin.

The club's next tourney will be a two-day event that will be out of South Cove on Lake Mead.

The pre-tournament meeting will be at 7 p.m. on April 26, in the conference room of the Arizona Game & Fish Dept.
