Caylor, Hayes Win Alabama Bass Trail on Eufaula
Their catch was anchored by a 6.12-pound largemouth bass.
The father and son team of Paul and Jeff Aul finished second with 24.58 pounds for five bass while Luke Kyle and Arch Cornett were third with 24.58 pounds. Ronnie Ray and Alton Stillwell finished fourth with 24.16 pounds and Scott Montgomery and Lester Bratcher finished fifth with 23.46 pounds.
“There were a lot of people fishing around us, but their boats were on top of the fish,” Caylor said. “When these bass in Eufaula get pressure, they will pull out into deeper water. They will still bite, but you have to fish a little deeper to catch them.”
“One of the fish we caught had another homemade jig in its mouth,” Hayes said. “Someone else had hooked it but broke it off.”
He declined to reveal specifics about the jig he makes but they have helped him win at least 15 tournaments.
Jeff Aul and his father caught most of their fish using white Strike King Spinnerbaits around wood cover.
“We fished blowdowns and some brush piles,” Jeff Aul said. “They were all holding right up next to the wood.”
