6th Sense Lure Swimbait with Charles Bebber
Sobczak & Garrie win Bass N Bucks Season Opener with over 28 pounds on 6th Sense Prototype Crankbaits
(Dec. 06, 2010 - Lake Sam Rayburn Lake, TX)... Out of the woods and back onto the lake for the first event of the Bass N Bucks 2011 season December 4, 2010 on Sam Rayburn. Lots of heavy limits and several big kickers were caught as well as a few "you should have seen the one that got away" scenarios. Casey Sobczak and Jonathan Garrie blew the field away, winning the tournament with a 28.24 lb limit.
Lake levels on Sam Rayburn still show to be around 8’ low, making many points and contours easy to see and channeling the fish to easy to find areas. The bite was on, as many reported having a five fish limit in their livewells within the first hour of fishing. The day was gorgeous with mild temps ranging from the mid 30’s to the mid 50’s, mild ENE winds with occasional gusts.
1st place team Kasey Sobczaak & Jonathan Garrie were using a prototype lure from 6th Sense Lures. Going to several spots, concentrating on bare ridges in 10-18’, they started catching right away. "Within the first 20 minutes, we had five fish in the livewell that probably weighed around 21 pounds," the team reported. Among them was their 7.26 lb kicker. "We hit a lot of spots and caught a lot of fish throughout the day, but only culled three times." Those culls pushed their weight to 28.24 lbs, winning the tournament. "It just all went right for us. We had a great day." Bass N Bucks presented them with $8,000 for their win. They would like to thank their sponsors 6th Sense Custom Tackle, Costa Del Mar and Custom Angle Rods. Read More
Bebber and Caka win BLT State Championship: Catch a 37.27lb 5 fish stringer on 6th Sense 300DD Prototype
The Bud Light Fall State Team Championship was held on Lake Sam Rayburn on November 12 and 13 at the Umphrey Family Pavilion. The tournament invited the top 50 percent from all other regional team tournaments to participate; however only 58 teams showed up to fish. The reason for the poor turn out could probably be blamed on the low lake levels and the handful of open boat ramps that are left.
Charles Bebber and Keith Caka cast their first lines on Saturday morning at 6:20 am and by 7:30 am had returned to the BLT weigh station at Umphrey Pavilion with a huge sack of fish. The guys only fished 25 minutes and caught a stringer weighing a total of 37.27 lbs with a 10.01 lbs big fish! Caka said, "We fished with a Sixth Sense deep diving crank bait prototype in 28 feet and throwing about 7 feet." He also said that they fished ledges on the first day and "we had all our fish in 25 minutes, they [the fish] just happened to be there, it was unbelievable." Caka also said that they had a tougher second day and eventually moved to fishing more grassy areas. Read More
Sobczak and Garrie catch 34.97lbs on the 6th Sense 50X Square Bill Crankbait for the Win
Bass N Bucks teams have never been known to let the wrath of Mother Nature stop them from doing what they do best, and Friday was no different.
Casey Sobczak and Jonathan Garrie took care of business in the first hour of the tournament, winning $8,000 with a 34.97-pound stringer.
"We caught a limit of small bass pretty quick," the team said.
Changing tactics to catch bigger bass, they headed to shallow water using 6th Sense Lures square bill crankbaits in the grass. From there, the team loaded up on a limit of fish with an average weight of 7 pounds each.
"The weather just kept getting worse, so we decided to come in early and weigh our fish," the said.
Their weight held by a margin of 5 pounds to take the win. Read More
