Ottawa’s Hahne wins Oklahoma fishing event
Pro fisherman Darren Hahne, of Ottawa, won the Major League Fishing Phoenix Bass Fishing League Okie Division event on Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma over the weekend, earning $4,698.
“It’s about time I won here,” Hahne said in a Major League Fishing release about the MLF Phoenix Bass Fishing League Presented by T-H Marine on Lake Eufaula presented by Flamingo Fish and Marine. “I’ve finished second on Eufaula twice, and I’m just glad to get this one. It’s my home lake, even though I live in Illinois and have been gone for 25 years. I was raised on that lake as a kid.”
Hahne’s five fish weighed in at 16 pounds, 12 ounces.
