Bokoshe angler solves Arkansas River to win Central Open

September 23, 2013

MUSKOGEE — Bokoshe's Chris Jones got off to an ominous start Saturday morning when his motor conked out and he had to be towed by Boat US.
When Jones got back to business at about 9:15 a.m., he relied on his knowledge of the Arkansas River to catch a 13-pound, 10-ounce limit and clinch the Bass Pro Shops BASSMaster Central Open pro division title. The Bokoshe angler finished with a three-day total of 40 pounds, 1 ounce and earned the top prize of a Nitro Z9/Mercury 225 Pro XS rig valued at $40,000 and $7,253 in cash.
