Cup Blog: Contrasting Efficiencies

August 20, 2014 8:49 am
I understood Anthony Gagliardi's strategy as I watched him on the final morning of the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup, but it still was odd to watch. He wasn't casting at all. Just standing, watching and waiting. He was waiting to cast to largemouths when they busted blueback herring on the surface. Fish feeding on herring during the summer only come up for an instant, and the only way to catch them is to cast immediately to the spot where they break. Gagliardi didn't want his bait a cast's distance away to the left when he really needed to make a cast to the right. And so he waited. "That's the best way to do it when they're schooling," Gagliardi said during the press conference right after he won the championship. "When one breaks you have about three seconds to put the bait there."

Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi achieved what had been considered by many to be an impossible goal here Sunday in bass fishing's richest championship tournament. After disqualification from the season-opening Walmart FLW Tour event on Lake Okeechobee because of an inadvertent rules infraction, the South Carolina angler completed a five-tournament comeback in regular season to qualify for the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup. Finally, here before a standing-room-only crowd in Colonial Life Arena, Gagliardi capped off his comeback by winning the four-day test on Lake Murray, his home fishery. Gagliardi's four-day weight of 51 pounds, 2 ounces earned him $500,000 For the complete story of Gagliardi's championship victory, click here. Visit ForrestWoodCup.com for complete results.

Gagliardi Overcomes

4:25 pm
How much is enough? For Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi, it was an ounce. That's what it took to edge Straight Talk pro Scott Canterbury and win the Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart and hosted by Capital City/Lake Murray Country with 51 pounds, 2 ounces. Gagliardi hoisted the Cup before a packed house at Colonial Life Arena. Details on top finishers will follow, but here's the upshot: Just 11 ounces separated first and fifth places. For fans of this sport, a weigh-in like this delivers memories not soon forgotten. Safe to say, that sentiment runs a good bit deeper for the local favorite from Prosperity, S.C. "It just falls in line with everything else that happened this year," he says. "I made it into the (Cup) by one ounce. It's just fitting."
