Lake of the Ozarks Regional

Nov 02, 2022
Wieberg and Hibdon take the win.

The Lake of the Ozarks Regional was held out of Pa He Tsi on October 22nd and 23rd. Taking first was the team of Joe Wieberg and Lawson Hibdon, taking home the guaranteed first place prize of $1,500.

They took the lead after one day of fishing with a limit worth 14.11lbs, which included a 5.71lb fish. The second day, they added 16.96lbs with a 5.95lb fish.

The key to the win, according to Wieberg was consistency and big bite each day. "Those bigger fish are hard to come by this time of year," he added. "It was definitely an afternoon bite for us. They always seem to bite better late in the day here in the fall."

Each day, they caught approximately ten keeper bass on a mix of different baits. "We used Hibdon Hammer jigs, buzzbaits, and spinnerbaits," shared Wieberg. "He caught the big one the first day on the jig in black and blue. I caught the second day big fish on a black buzzbait."
