Gary Wagner of Martinsville, Ind., weighed in four bass totaling 15 pounds, 5 ounces Saturday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Hoosier Division event on Patoka Lake. For his victory, Wagner earned $4,575.
“On my first day of practice I never got a single bite,” said Wagner. “It was very discouraging to me, but I knew the fish had to be somewhere. I went out on the second day and changed my game plan up quite a bit. It wasn’t until later that day when I finally found a pattern that worked.
