Ryan Powroznik of Prince George County weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 15 ounces July 18 to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League Piedmont Division tournament on the James River in Varina. For his victory, Powroznik earned $7,507.

Powroznik said that he caught nearly 12 keepers on the James by targeting wood and grass in 3- to 5-feet of water.

“I caught two of my biggest fish using a black and blue Shooter Lures jig trailered with a black and blue-colored Zoom Super Chunk,” said Powroznik, who earned the second BFL series win of his career. “After the first one bit at 9:30 a.m., I just kept hacking away looking for the big ones.”

Powroznik said the majority of his fish bit on the Shooter jig, but a key bite came on a black and chartreuse-colored custom crankbait later in the day.

“I ran to a few more brushpiles to catch a limit before heading in. I also had found a good bite in some rocks,” said Powroznik. “When you’re from the area, you always keep a few spots in your back pocket in case you need to grab a few more fish.”

Tom Hebb of Moneta, Va., caught the biggest bass of the tournament in the pro division, a fish weighing 6 pounds, 9 ounces and earned the day’s Big Bass award of $655.

Damon Reid of Bowie, Maryland, weighed in five bass totaling 12 pounds, 12 ounces Saturday to win $2,253 in the co-angler division.

The top 50 boaters and 50 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Oct. 8-10 Regional Championship on the Potomac River in Marbury, Maryland. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and $20,000, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.
