Legend picks up Tournament win

One of the unique things about the sport of bass fishing is that fish don’t care whether you are eight or 80. Nothing illustrates this any better than Guido Hibdon.

The bass angling legend from Sunrise Beach, Missouri racked up another professional win at Alabama’s Lake Eufala on Saturday. The 60+-year-old Hibdon (it is tough to find his exact age) sacked a four day total weighing 83-9 to capture the Walmart FLW Series event. Hibdon earned $125,000 and outdistanced Tom Mann Jr. by a 5-pound, 1-ounce margin.

Hibdon said he fished the entire tournament near the dam south of Eufaula and managed to land about 10 keepers on the last day of competition. Hibdon said every one of the fish he caught Saturday came on a Copper Perch-colored Lucky Craft RC 2.5 square-billed crankbait. Hibdon said he controlled the depth of the crankbait by varying the size of line he paired it with.
