McCall prevails at Rayburn

McCall prevails at Rayburn

Brookeland, Texas resident Chris McCall, a former FLW Tour pro, caught a 19-10 bag Saturday to win the weather-shortened Sam Rayburn Reservoir Rayovac FLW Series. He finished with a 2-day total of 33-15.

“I think this win feels better than my first one,” said McCall, who also won a Rayovac event on Sam Rayburn in 2006. “It was really a tough tournament. Today, everything just came together for me. I feel great.

“I had a 20-mile milk run,” he continued. “I had around 15 different spots that I liked, and I just rotated through them. Most of the areas I fished I pretty much had to myself, which is pretty rare for Rayburn. One of the keys for me was fishing real thoroughly. I really milked my main areas and fished until I knew that I had gotten every bite.”

He said that all of his fish this week came on a Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap, a Sixth Sense crankbait and a Santone Lures football-head jig, and red seemed to be the color of choice. Full details of his winning pattern will be published soon.

Here are the final totals for the Top 10:

1. Chris McCall: 33-15
2. Robert Case: 31-14
3. Dicky Newberry: 30-05
4. Brian Branum: 29-03
5. Jason Wells: 28-09
6. Todd Castledine: 27-05
7. James Stricklin Jr.: 26-02
8. Keith Combs: 26-02
9. Ray Hanselman: 25-05
10. Clint West: 25-03
