Steve Hatfield of Ashland, Ohio, weighed four bass totaling 11 pounds, 3 ounces, Sunday to win the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Buckeye Division Super Tournament on Lake Erie, with a two-day total of nine bass weighing 26 pounds even. Hatfield took home $5,077 for his win.
Local angler Dustin Wood of Eufaula, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 13 pounds, 10 ounces, Sunday to win the FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Bulldog Division Super Tournament on Lake Eufaula presented by Navionics, with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 28 pounds, 3 ounces. For his win, Wood took home $5,660.
It's September, which means two things: Fall is on the horizon, and the FLW Bass Fishing League Super Tournaments are underway.
The third stop of the Walmart FLW Tour makes its annual trek back to northwest Arkansas and the very scenic Beaver Lake. Being that it is mid-April, the bass are moving shallow and putting the feed bag on. Dirtier water than normal has bigger fish chewing and leaves some of the best shallow-water fisherman in the world battling for the title in a very close tournament.
Early fall to me is primarily September, the time of year when football season and the FLW Bass Fishing League Super Tournaments start. For me, it's a transition period when the fish tend to be really scattered. September is one of the toughest months nationwide, even on the best lakes in the country, and it's no different on Grand Lake in Oklahoma.

Come late summer, the bass fishing in the South can get tough for about anyone. As the fish begin migrating back into the creeks or onto the flats to chase bait, they leave the offshore summer structure vacant.

Heading way up the river in August has turned into a Forrest Wood Cup tradition. When Jacob Wheeler won in 2012, he did it largely in the Chattahoochee River, far from takeoff and the clear waters of Lake Lanier. In 2015, tons of weight came from far up the creeks and rivers of Lake Ouachita. Brad Knight won there, and Zack Birge (eighth) and Mark Daniels Jr. (ninth) both caught nearly all their fish at the extremes.

We asked, and we received. FLW made it happen. If you're a Tour-level pro, you want and need to fish as many events as you can in a given year. This gives you more opportunities to cash checks and promote your sponsors. Not to mention there are 2017 Forrest Wood Cup berths on the line.
