Morehead Wins EverStart Series Championship on Kentucky Lake.

Troy Anderson wins co-angler title

BUCHANAN, Tenn., Oct. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Prevacid pro Dan Morehead of Paducah, Ky., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 19 pounds, 5 ounces Sunday to win the EverStart Series Championship on Kentucky Lake with a four day total of 20 bass weighing 61 pounds, 4 ounces. For his victory, Morehead earned $50,000 plus a 198VX Ranger boat with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor.

"I've been waiting since 10:30 to weigh my fish," said an overzealous Prevacid pro Dan Morehead who was looking for his first championship title. "I am tickled to death with what I did. A lot of people thought this tournament would be won down south, but Kentucky Lake is Kentucky Lake and I had to go north to my home waters.

"I caught most of my fish with the Alabama rig," Morehead continued. "Let me tell you, nothing triggers suspended fish quite like this rig. I have never felt the bass strike the way they do as on an Alabama rig. I had three rods on my deck. Two had the Alabama rig. One had four, 4 1/2 inch Berkley Hollow Belly Swimbaits surrounding a 5 1/2 inch swimbait. On the other I had five, 5 1/2 inch Berkley swimbaits and would switch to the bigger bait rig after I had caught my limit and wanted to go for the bigger bass. On the first day when the weather was so nasty I caught two of my better fish using a Zara Spook. But for the rest of the tournament it was all Alabama rig.

"This is just awesome to be able to win in front of all my friends and family," Morehead added.
