Posted: 2/24/2009

Scottsboro, AL ... February 14, 2009 ... Fishing out of a Triton Mercury package that he won fishing the Grand Slam Series in ’08, Jerry Wells is one step closer to the Bassmaster Classic with a first place win and $5,000 in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series bass tournament held on Lake Guntersville. His Triton Gold rig earned him an extra $4500 in contingency money as well. Wells` five bass limit weighed in at 27.26 and was caught using vibration baits and small crankbaits fishing shallow grass. Jerry is a well known cold weather local fisherman and a threat to win any tournament on Guntersville. The winner said he fished only five or six of his good places to cull through ten keeper bass to achieve the winning weight. He also remarked that the bigger fish (over five pounds) have been biting better this winter than ever before.
