To some degree Dave Lefebre shocked himself by winning his second tour event on Kentucky Lake, he kind of thought his best chance would come at the Potomac or Champlain. Lefebre found his primary winning area on the second day of practice and then looked for complimentary stuff the rest of practice. The area was a shell bed in 5-6ft of water within a mile or so of take-off. In practice he found these fish, devouring Rapala DT6 & DT10 crankbaits, while he caught fish on these crankbaits during the event, his biggest fish fell for a Storm swimbait.
This tournament did not turn out to be the big time ledge event that many had expected. Much of the top 10 were doing different things, mid-range transition areas and spots, dock fishing to shallow less then four foot for a few anglers fishing Lake Barkley. Also, the A-rig was not a huge force in this event, it seems that 3rd place Kyle Mabrey was on of the few that leverage the castable umbrella rig, which I am sure Mr. Lefebre is happy about, as he has been very vocal about his disdain for the A-rigs.
Along with several DT crabkbaits, the Storm swimbait that he used on his primary shell, Lefebre also utilized a Tabu 1-ounce brown jig with purple tinsel tipped with a green-pumpkin Yamamoto trailer on ledges and inlets into the main river channel to compliment his best spot.
