Boater Brad Roberts and Co-Angler Cameron McCane claimed the Walmart FLW Tournament on Barren River Lake Sept. 22-23.

   Boater Brad Roberts and Co-Angler Cameron McCane won the Walmart FLW Mountain Division Tournament on Barren River Lake this weekend, Sept. 22-23.
   Roberts of Faubush, Ky., claimed first place with a two-day catch of 27 lbs. On Saturday, he caught four fish weighing 13lbs. 7 ozs. and Sunday caught five fish weighing 13 lbs. 9 ozs.
   The win netted Roberts $5,126, plus a Ranger boats bonus of $2,000.
   He said that he followed the same pattern both days- fishing shallow and in the grass early in the day along Beaver and Skaggs creeks, and then transitioned to deeper water near the main channel bridge later in the day. 
   Roberts said that he caught the majority of his fish using jiggs- Cumberland Pro football jigg and Barren Crawl jigg.
   McCane of Lancaster, Ky., won first place on the Co-Anglers side with a tw0-day total of 17 lbs. 3 ozs. On Saturday, he caught three fish weighing 7 lbs. 2 ozs. and followed it up Sunday with four fish weighing 10 lbs. 1 oz.
   McCane collected $2,532 for his win.
   He said that he fished “pretty much everywhere” looking for the bass.
   McCane, too, began his days in shallows and grass, using a frog and chatterbait. But, he found more keepers deep using jiggs.
