Ranger Boats pro takes bass-fishing tournament

Ranger Boats pro Keith Combs won his third Toyota Texas Bass Classic title.

Combs won on Sunday at big-bass fishery Lake Fork.

Aboard his Ranger Z520C, Combs collected more than $150,000 in cash and prizes. His three-day total of 15 bass, which weighed 110 pounds, set a world record for the heaviest three-day total weight at a tour-level event.

The Toyota Texas Big Bass Classic is an annual event that pits top pros from the Bassmaster Elite Series, the FLW Tour and the PAA Series.

"To get 100 pounds in four days is a major accomplishment, and to do it in three is unheard of. It's nothing about the angler, but it's a testament to this lake," Combs said in a statement. "I wasn't the only one here to crack 100 pounds on 15 bass, so that just tells you how strong and how well managed this lake is."
