With$125,000 on the line at the seasonopeningWal-Mart FLW Tour eventon Lake Travis, Hastings fished asthough Travis was his home lake,catching 10 bass during the finalround that weighed 19 pounds, 9ounces.Despite heading into Sundayʼscompetition with a 2-pound lead,Hastings was still the heavy underdog.He had fished one area for theentire tournament while Wendlandtseemingly had numerous options.Furthermore, fellow young gunsBryan Thrift and Craig Dowlingwere breathing down his neck.But none of that mattered. Whatmattered was putting fish in theboat, and Hastings did just that,catching roughly 15 keepers on thefinal day. His best five weighed 9pounds, 10 ounces, which securedhis first FLW Tour title and 125large. Closeouts On“Iʼm 1999 amped,” Models he said. “The moneyis great, but to me itʼs all about thecompetition and catching fish. Itreally doesnʼt get any better thanthis.”The Middletown, Md., pro neveraltered his pattern - contour breaksunder floating docks located in theback of Cypress Creek Marina.The lack of wind Sunday helpedhim pinpoint his casts.

of finding where they repositioned.On day four, they were located in18 to 24 feet of water.“I fish the same way everyday,”added Hastings. “I donʼt feelpressure anymore. I know my ability.I know whatʼs inside of me.I definitely have the nerves forthis.”For more proof, Hastings didnʼthave a single keeper in the boat at11 a.m. yesterday, but instead ofpanicking and running to a newspot, he adjusted. He said that wasthe biggest mental decision of theentire tournament.“You just have to have faith inyour abilities. I never missed a biteall week. You should have seen thelook on my cameramanʼs face whenI was lifting fish in the boat with6-pound line. When I flipped thatlast fish over the catwalk, I stoodup and said, “This is over.”The 2007 season is only Hastingsʼsecond year on the FLW Tour. Lastyear was extremely difficult, but heis no stranger to success, as he wasthe 2005 Stren Series NortheastDivision points champion. Interestinglyenough, Hastings beat outMr Eary shot a giant buck.

At takeoff Sunday morning, Thriftdidnʼt exactly exude confidence.He was catching fish, but each andevery day he was getting fewer andfewer bites. On day four, he caughta dozen keepers, weighing five for10 pounds, 9 ounces. Thriftʼs limit,caught with a 1/2-ounce ShooterLures jig tipped with a small Zoomsalty chunk, was the heaviest of thefinal round.For his efforts, the Shelby, N.C.,native earned $50,000 with a finalweight of 17-15.“I just havenâ€TMt been aroundbig fish,” said Thrift, who wasfishing floating boat docks andpontoon boats. “In my six days ofpractice, my biggest fish was about2 1/2 pounds. But this is awesome.Iʼll take $50,000. Iʼm not greedy.“I am getting married July 21, sothis money will definitely not go towaste; it will probably go towardthe wedding and a house.”Thrift has already notched 10 top-10 finishes and three victories outof only 28 FLW Outdoors events.This, however, was his first top-10on the FLW Tour.

Dowling caught hisfish with a homemade 1/16-ouncefinesse jig tipped with a Yamamotoshad-shaped worm. During theopening round, he used a green-pumpkin worm, but he switched tothe smoke variety today. He riggedhis tiny jig with 15-pound PowerPro braided line and used an 8-pound Sugoiʼs leader.Advertise In TheW. Va.

When he reached intohis bag for fish No. 2, out came a4-pound kicker. Most in attendancethought that was just the start ofgood things to come. Unfortunately,that was Wendlandt”s last fish.The Kelloggʼs proʼs key baits thisweek were a Storm Wiggle Wartcrankbait and a homemade 9/16-ounce jig tipped with a greenpumpkinGambler cricket, fishedaround docks.After his 24th tour-level top-10,Wendlandtʼs career earnings withFLW Outdoors now surpass $1.245million. Consider that Hastingshasnʼt even fished 24 tour-levelevents in his entire career.While he felt the added pressure,Wendlandt certainly wasnʼt a victimto the home-lake jinx.“I probably had enough fish on towin the tournament,” said the twotimeLand OʼLakes Angler of theYear, who broke off two fish Saturdayand two fish Sunday. “Iʼvenever seen them bite a jig that goodon Travis before.”1521 DuPont RoadParkersburg, WV 26102304-861-0449866-266-6855SalesServiceServicing All Brands of ATVʼs - Motorcycles - TractorsMarch 2007 ~ Page 7Large SelectionNew & Used GunsRt. 60 E.

six years ago not to do so, as I gotscreamed at a lot.Karl was not gaining much onhis fish. I was losing ground onmine. There were only a few withouta fish on - - they tried to stayout of way of the “bent-double”rods. Remember, weʼre using lighttackle and the mackerel alreadygaffed and brought aboard were averagingwell over 20 pounds. I wasstill losing ground. I looked at myreel and noticed I was almost outof line - then PING! - - I was outof line. Karl was very slowly gainingon his. It had already been wellover 30 minutes since we hookedup. Big king mackerel were floppingall over the deck by then. Thecaptain came down from his highperch and helped with the gaffingand re-baiting. Petite Natalie wasrunning around with her gaff tryingto keep up with the fish as they laytethered next to the boat. These arethe strongest fish Iʼve every caughton light tackle. Thereʼs no quit tothem. It was impossible to lift themonto the deck as it was way too highfrom the water line, so everyonehad to wait patiently for the longgaff-hook.

Peoplewere going left and right, and overand under other fishermen, tryingdesperately to keep our fish straightout. Capt. Stowe had to come downfrom top deck to help bring the fishaboard.

Nobody complained.Why? We were having toomuch fun. Big fish were floppingagainst the deck on all 150 feet offreeboard.Finally, thank the good Lord, weran out of baitfish. It wasnʼt even1:00 pm. We were worn out and armweary. Everybody, including thepoor sick guy, was ready to wavethe white flag and utter “uncle.”.An unbelievable day. Just beforewe headed back, Captain Stowegot on the bull horn and said, “Iʼmsorry for screaming at some of you.But remember I said we would befriends at the end of the day. Arewe friends?” We screamed ʻYesʼand applauded!Karlʼs arms and elbows were alreadyturning black and blue frombanging them against the metalrailings on the boat. Itʼs a wonderno one fell overboard. Iʼd hate tothink what would have happenedif the railing hadnʼt been there.Some of the sharks we broughtalong side the boat were in the 200pound range.

Thoughheʼs far from a local — Demopolisis 138 miles from the Lay Lakelaunching point — heʼs a veteranon the lake through various teamand individual tours.“Itʼs every anglers dream,” saidDuckett, a chemical tank rentalbusiness owner. “Iʼve been workingtowards fishing the tour for afew years. Iʼm really tickled aboutthe home state angle. All of us,Timmy (Horton), Russ (Lane) andeveryone else talk and we all saidhow great itʼd be.”Duckett, an accomplished riverangler, emphasized how importanthis flipping bite — in decidedlycalmer water — was in upping hisweight after securing a limit earlyeach morning.“This whole tournament wasabout the flipping fish. The longeryou keep a flipping stick in yourhand the better off you are,” Duckettsaid. “Weʼve got a (full) mooncoming up in eight or nine daysand those females are moving up.”No stranger to the Coosa Riverimpoundment located southeastof Birmingham, Duckett said thatwhile familiarity with the body ofwater certainly didnʼt hurt, itwasnʼt a big factor either.

Boydjust flat out beat me. Second hurts,it really does. You donʼt get thatmany opportunities to win a BassmasterClassic.
