Blaylock finishes in 5th place after a solid week of fishing.

As posted on FLW Outdoors: Each of the final two days, Stetson Blaylock caught identical 14-pound, 10-ounce limits and gradually rose to fifth with a cumulative weight of 59 pounds, 9 ounces. Like Lucas and Dudley, Blaylock spent all of his time shallow.

“Every bass I weighed this week came on a spinning rod, 10-pound Seaguar fluorocarbon line and a Yamamoto Senko rigged on a shaky head,” said the Benton, Ark., native.

In practice, Blaylock identified two or three productive stretches of bank. On day one, he caught them in between the docks under cloudy conditions. But during the rest of the week, he caught them under and around the shady spots in the sunny weather.

“They say shallow fish don’t replenish, especially this time of year, but they really did for me this week. Every day I’d catch a good fish off the same dock.”
