Black wins Phoenix Bass Fishing League event on Neely Henry Lake | Sports

Boater Lee Black of Danville, formerly of Speake, caught five bass last Saturday weighing 15 pounds, 6 ounces to win the MLF Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by TH Marine on Neely Henry Lake. The tournament, hosted by the town of Gadsden, was the fourth event in the Bass Fishing League Bama division. Black earned $4,315 for his victory.

“I started and ran about 40 minutes to my first spot, and it was a little slow for the first two hours,” Black said. “I had four fish in the tank and one that weighed 3.5 pounds. Then around noon the bigger fish started biting and I caught three 4-pounders.
