Catching big bass is usually a spring thing. But at Lake D’Arbonne it goes all year long. Just take a look at these bass caught at the Scott Bullitt Big Bass Tournament this past weekend on the lake. By the way, more than $2,000 was raised through fishermen entry fees after prizes and almost $1,000 in winnings was donated back to the cause by winning fishermen. Good job.

These are the winners of the tournament. Fish were caught on a variety of baits, but the big ones mostly came on buzz baits early, big plastic lures on up in the day and a variety of shad colored crank baits.

Overall Big Bass:
  Sontus Mitchell 6.52   $1,000
  Jamie Albritton 5.39      $400
  Luke Herring 5.15           $300
