Enderle wins bass tournament on Ohio River

Monday, June 21, 2004

Rodney Enderle of Jackson won the Bass Busters of Southeast Missouri bass tournament the weekend of June 12 and 13 on the Smithland Pool of the Ohio River at Galconda, Ill.

With windy and rainy conditions, Enderle managed to cull six fish on his way to a solid limit of 2-pound-plus fish, including the 3-pound 12-ounce big bass for the tournament.

The main river was muddy and swift so Enderle focused his efforts in the clear creeks. He caught all his fish throwing a small profile 3/8-ounce White and blue War Eagle spinnerbait with a medium action 6-foot-6 Kistler Helium Rod. The fish were holding behind standing timber on the channel breaks just out of the current flow.

Chris Joiner, also of Jackson, took second place for the bag of fish he caught using a Baby Brush Hog. His color of choice was June Bug.

Joiner caught his fish within casting distance of Enderle.
