>N.C., pro Chris Pro Chris Baumgardner finished the Fort Loudoun-Tellico event in fourth place with 49 pounds, 6 ounces.Baumgardner. After sacking limits of 14-5, 10-15 and 12-0, Baumgardner managed another five bass Saturday that weighed 12 pounds, 2 ounces to finish with 49-6. Like Grigsby and Thrift, Baumgardner started his tournament on spawning smallmouths. Unlike those two, he wasn’t looking at them.

“I wasn’t sight-fishing, but those ones I caught the first two days – I knew they were there,” he said.

Baumgardner’s bait of choice for bed fish was a Zoom Magnum Trick Worm.

Over the final two days, he tapped into a shad spawn on a natural rock bank.

“The fish weren’t on them good, but you could catch a few. I tried to expand on that today, but it was tough. I only caught five.”

Friday and Saturday Baumgardner used a new Brian’s Bees wakebait called a Long Wake Bee. Throughout the tournament he fished a midlake area in Loudoun.

Norman, I was pretty down about not doing well on my home lake. So this feels pretty good. I was

never on any of those 16- to 20-pound bags. I caught what I could catch.”

"I could give a lot of reasons why I use Brian’s Bee’s crank baits. From the superior color patterns to the unique homemade designs to the variety of baits to choose from, but the bottom line is that I simply catch more fish with these crank baits than any other that I have used, they catch fish! period. You know, Brian is a bass fisherman too and understand what it takes to make fish bite he also listens to other fisherman (some of the top names in tournament fishing) and incorporates their input into the design of each bait, but best of all he is dedicated to making the very best crank bait he can and he truly cares about each and every bait. That’s why when people ask what crank bait I caught all those fish on I just smile and say Brian’s Bee’s made with love by Brian Huskins."
