Leedom and Gunsauls pick up right where they left off

0

Tom Leedom and Keith Gunsauls finished off the 2012/2013 National Bass West season in San Diego with a tournament win, and then on Saturday kicked off the 2013/2014 season with another. The reigning “Anglers of the Year” in the NBW San Diego Region brought 18.11 pounds to the scales at El Capitan to edge the second place duo of Bob Palashewski and Roger Gordon by a little more than a half a pound. Leedom and Gunsauls capitalized on the morning bite to put together their winning limit using crankbaits and carolina rigs in the north end of the lake in 5 to 15 feet of water. Their big fish weighed in at 5.72 pounds, and was the second heaviest of the tournament.

Ricardo Hernandez and Ken Davis weighed the heaviest bass, a 7.91 pounder that was part of a 15.73 pound 5 bass limit good for fourth place. In total, 37 teams competed in the first event of the season. We’ll see if any of them have what it takes to compete with the red-hot Leedom and Gunsauls this year.
