Wheeler Lake Top 5 Patterns Day 2

August 5, 2016 8:31 pm
John Cox opened up a hefty lead up front, but several shakeups occurred behind him. Some who charged to the front yesterday with strong 14-pound-plus limits fell today. Meanwhile, a bunch of 14-pound-plus stringers bounced Jacob Wheeler, Michael Neal, Darrel Robertson, Todd Auten, Jimmy Reese and David Dudley into top-10 territory. Here is a look at how the rest of the top five fared.

The Tin Man Stays on Top

You can call him the Tin Man because he runs an aluminum bass boat in a fiberglass world. Or you can call him John Cox. Whatever you call him, the Florida pro might be known as the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup champion come Sunday if he can maintain his pace going into the weekend on Wheeler Lake. Cox backed up his day-one catch of 16 pounds, 11 ounces with 15-10 today to move his two-day total to 32-5. Cox leads current runners-up Jacob Wheeler and Michael Neal by 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Both Wheeler and Neal had big days today with 17-9 and 15-12, respectively.

Wheeler Lake Top 5 Patterns Day 1

For proof that fishing was all over the place at Wheeler Lake on day one of the Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart, look no further than the top five. While John Cox took the early lead by getting as far back into a feeder creek as possible, the other four pros atop the leaderboard are doing a little bit of everything - and anything that will earn them a bite.

Cox Leads Day 1 at Wheeler

6:28 pm
John Cox has a knack for finding shallow bass in tucked-away places that the competition misses, and that's exactly how he put together a 16-pound, 11-ounce limit on day one of the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart at Wheeler Lake to take the early lead. Cox, who won the second stop of the 2016 Walmart FLW Tour season at Lake Hartwell, has a 1-pound, 13-ounce lead over fellow Floridian Brandon McMillan. Ten anglers are within 5 pounds of the leader going into Friday's cut day.

The FLW Expo, which is free to attend, offers an opportunity for bass anglers to shop the wares of more than 100 exhibitors and vendors. Meanwhile, the rest of the family can enjoy a slate of fun activities and giveaways.

Just like the 50 guys who qualified for the Cup this season, I've been doing my research on what we can expect from the bass that inhabit this Tennessee River reservoir during the heart of summer so that I'll be prepared to help break down all the action as one of the on-the-water hosts for the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup.
