Oklahoma’s bass tournament season is off to a strong start with two Calera anglers boating a five-limit, 42-pound bag Saturday in the Backyard Bassin’ Tournament on Arbuckle Lake.
Jeff Reynolds and partner Johnny Thompson weighed in five fish for a total of 42.04 pounds, providing more proof that Arbuckle has become the best bass fishing lake in the state.
Two of the five fish were caught on an Alabama rig, two were caught with a jerk bait and one on a football-head jig. The biggest was a nine-pounder and smallest was a six. 
The second place stringer in the tournament weighed in at 28.42 pounds and included a 6.54-pound smallmouth bass. Anglers in the tournament also produced two 10-pounders and at least a dozen fish that weighed more than 8 pounds, tournament officials said.
