Minnesotan wins at Amisad as Allen collapses

Minnesotan wins at Amisad as Allen collapses

Randy Allen, a former Elite Series pro who'd dominated the Lake Amistad Bassmaster Central Open through the first 2 days, weighed just a single 1 1/2-pound fish on the final day. That allowed Andy Young, a guide at Minnesota's Lake Minnetonka, to move up from 2nd place and claim the victory.

“This is a lifelong dream,” said Young of his win and of qualifying for the 2015 Bassmaster Classic (provided he competes in the two remaining Central Opens). “I've been telling all my friends back home that I"m living a dream and I'm afraid someone is going to pinch me and wake me up.

“I thought I was fishing for 2nd. The local hammer (Allen) had 18 pounds each day, and I was about 11 pounds behind. I just went out and did the best I could.”

He caught a 13-10 sack to give him a 39-06 total, edging out Elite pro Stephen Browning by 1 ounce. Allen ended up 3rd.

Young compiled most of his weight with an umbrella rig and a dropshot. Full details of his winning pattern will be published soon.

Here are the final totals for the Top 12:

1. Andy Young: 39-06
2. Stephen Browning: 39-05
3. Randy Allen: 37-12
4. Cody Greaney: 34-03
5. Jordan Lee: 31-09
6. Carl Jocumsen: 30-06
7. Matt Lee: 30-04
8. Ray Hanselman: 29-12
9. Dave Mansue: 28-05
10. Troy Broussard: 26-02
11. Kurt Dove: 26-00
12. Edwin Evers: 21-11
