The fishing was tough for many, but not too tough for Doris Parsons and Robbie Hartline, who captured victories on Lake Hickory this weekend in the first stop on the Lady Bass Anglers Association pro tour.

Parsons, from nearby Maiden, won the co-anglers competition with a two-day weight total of 10.95 pounds. She finished Friday in second place after hauling in three fish weighing 5.97 pounds, and added to that total with three more fish Saturday totaling 4.98 pounds.

She was one of just two co-anglers to catch the max limit of three fish on each day and credited the victory to her consistency.

“Just keep a lure in the water and fish slow,” Parsons said.

Hartline, who came all the way from Hot Springs, Ark., led the pro-anglers side after day one with 10.63 pounds’ worth of bass. She met the five-fish limit on both days, bringing in another 7.53 pounds Saturday for her first professional title.

“I started bass fishing from the very beginning in 2000. I joined a little local club and didn’t know what I was doing,” Hartline said. “I just built on learning from others that I fished with because I didn’t really have that mentor that could bring me out and teach me so I’m sort of self-taught. I hired a lot of guides and I’ve fished with different people and I try to take away a nugget from everybody I fish with if I can.”

Most anglers came in under their limit as the warm weather meant the lake was quite busy with other tournaments and casual boaters. Additionally, a whipping wind made for choppy waters and disrupted fishing patterns for anglers and bass alike.

Hartline was able to make the correct adjustments, however, moving her boat into deeper water to get more bites and ultimately secure the win.

Written by Leslie Anderson

As the qualifiers for the 2019 LBAA Classic descended upon beautiful and mysterious Caddo Lake, they were greeted with scorching temperatures and sunny skies. The anglers braved the heat, low water conditions, and maze-like channels during practice in their search for a pattern and/or regions holding Caddo hogs.

My name is Robbie Hartline and I live in Hot Springs, AR. I grew up in the Southwest; Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. My Dad introduced me to fishing as a child and I was hooked from the start. Our approach was quite different then. Most of our fishing was done in a lawn chair hoping to catch whatever would bite. I looked forward to every trip and even won a Zebco 33 in a derby when I was 12.
