Skirmish Baits Pro Staff teammates Darrel Thomas and Robert Richardson decided to partner up and fish the IFBBA Texas Team Open on Lake Bob Sandlin, March 11, 2017. That decision paid off as the duo took first place with 17.22lbs. They also weighed in the second largest bass of the tournament with an 8lb giant!
The Winning Pattern: Casting and pitching soft plastics in and around scattered grass and laydowns.
The Bait: Gambler Fat Ace in Lane Toad color, fished on a 1/8 oz. VMC Drop Dead hook.
For their efforts, Darrel and Robert took home a cash prize along with a pair of $500 Bass Pro Shops gift cards.
