Daniels wins at Cal Delta

FLW Tour pro and reigning TBF national champion Mark Daniels Jr. of Fairfield, Calif., weighed a 26-12 sack on Saturday to win the California Delta Western Rayovac with a 3-day total of 72-07.

“I’m just speechless,” he said. “Looking out in the crowd, there are so many people here who supported me. It’s great to get home and relax and get a win in this tournament.

“I came home to surprise my mom and I hooked up with a couple of my buddies. We went out fishing and had a really good day. We caught a really good fish that I posted on Instagram, and that gave me an idea of what I could do to win the tournament. I made up my mind and signed up for the tournament the next day.

He said he focused on pre-spawn fish.

“I was targeting fish that wanted to actually bite. I don’t like looking at them on beds. There are so many different ways you can catch them pre-spawn on the Delta. That was the way to go.

“(Saturday), I didn’t have any really big ones. I had some 6-pounders, though. I started out throwing topwaters and I was just catching small fish. Around 8 o’clock in the morning I swapped over and started flipping and immediately caught a 4-pounder. After that I pretty much locked that rod in my hand the whole day.”

Full details of his winning pattern will be published soon.
