Why the Wheels Fell Off: Lake Murray

August 21, 2014 2:18 pm
Hot spots run out, get moved in on by others and change with conditions, but the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup wasn't about spots. Lake Murray's deep fish followed roving herring, and shallow fish were widespread. Therefore, most pros changed areas daily, moved frequently through the day or stayed on the move all the time. Some ran specific patterns, while others junk-fished. Unpredictable action, including inexplicable hero-to-zero days, began during practice, and everyone knew the uncertainty would continue through the tournament. Of course, knowing that today's action promises nothing about tomorrow doesn't make it any easier when the bite actually tapers and keeps you out of a cut or prevents you from finishing the job, especially when you're fishing for half a million dollars and the title of world champion. We asked several pros that experienced a costly drop-off to share their perspective on what went wrong.

Fantasy Fishing Players Win Big

Steve Pasker of Waterloo, Iowa, was the top-scoring FLW Fantasy Fishing player in 2014 and won the season-long grand prize of $10,000. Pasker scored 12,081 points throughout the seven-event season (six Walmart FLW Tour events and the Forrest Wood Cup). His victory closely mirrors Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi's 2014 season, which began with disqualification at the season opener and culminated with a Forrest Wood Cup win by 1 ounce over Scott Canterbury. Pasker struggled in the first Fantasy Fishing event at Okeechobee, but he outlasted Michael Austin of Elmhurst, Pa., by just 2 points in the final standings to squeak through to victory. "This is awesome," says Pasker. "I didn't think I had any chance after the first tournament of the year at Lake Okeechobee. I didn't have a good finish at all in that tournament, but in the next six events I did pretty well.

Anthony Gagliardi didn't even have time to savor his Forrest Wood Cup victory on Lake Murray before the naysayers started showing up. He isn't a good sportsman, say some. His victory should be nullified, say others.
