Torkleson Wins Bass Fishing League Okie Division Tournament on Grand Lake
"This win was definitely a relief," said Torkleson. "I've finished second in that event twice. It was a good release to finally win it."
Torkleson said the weather played a big role in the tournament. A front moved through after the first day of competition, and anglers fished the second day under clouds in wind and misting rain.
Torkleson said he caught his fish on day one on a Lucky Craft RC 1.5 crankbait, but switched to a Zara Spook and Rebel Pop-R on the final day of competition.
"The bites on top were better bites," Torkleson said. "I only had six bites Sunday, but they were good bites."
Rounding out the top five boaters are Marc Downs of Midwest City, Okla. (10 bass, 24-14, $2,441); Wade Ramsey of Newalla, Okla. (10 bass, 24-11, $1,625); Nick Aber of Piedmont, Okla. (10 bass, 23-15, $1,139) and Shonn Goodwin of Moore, Okla. (10 bass, 23-5, $976).
Torkleson and Ramsey took home the Boater Division Folgers Big Bass award, each earning $300 for a pair of 5-pound, 3-ounce bass.
Larry Soukup of Agra, Okla., earned $2,441 as the co-angler winner Sunday thanks to a two-day catch of 10 bass weighing 28 pounds, 8 ounces.
Soukup earned $300 as the co-angler Folgers Big Bass winner after catching a 4-pound, 13-ounce bass.
