SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, La. - It is no surprise that the Red River in the middle of August would present a tough bite.

SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, La. - Coming in to day one of the 2013 Forrest Wood Cup, the big debate was whether a big bag in the upper teens could be caught from the stingy Red River in the middle of August. Each of the last two Cup champions rode big opening-day bags and then solidified the title with average, but consistent stringers. This year, two eye-opening bags were caught on day one as Randall Tharp and Bryan Thrift weighed nearly identical 18-8 and 18-7 stringers.

SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, La. - As the top pros in the nation departed Red River South Marina shortly after 7 a.m., they could take solace in the fact that the extreme heat and humidity that dominated practice just days before had finally dissipated. However, with light winds, partly cloudy skies and relatively cooler temps serving as a backdrop for the first day of Forrest Wood Cup action, anglers were all too aware that the weather would be the least of their problems.
