Ft. Worth, Texas pro Cheryl Bowden adapted to the changing conditions on Alabama’s Lake Neely Henry to capture her first Lady Bass Anglers Association (LBAA) tour victory today as she brought 21.90-pounds to the scales in the two-day LBAA event here.
Bowden’s first LBAA tour victory was by the slimmest of margins over Bainbridge, Georgia pro Pam Martin-Wells who caught 20.88-pounds.
“The water muddied up,” Bowden exclaimed at the event’s conclusion. “We also had no current today and we had cloudy, but we had no rain. In practice I needed the rain and clouds. I didn’t have that today so I had to make adjustments so I went from buzz bait to crank bait. It was a really slow bite today too; however, my Texas rig was the same the entire tournament, with the difference today being that I had to move it really, really slow.”
