5 Pros to watch at Pickwick

By Kyle Wood - Wednesday, Jun. 4, 2014, 12:30 PM
The end is in sight for the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour as the field prepares for event No. 5 on Pickwick Lake this week. At this point in the season, anglers near the top 35 of the AOY standings are focusing on earning enough points to qualify for the Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray Aug. 14-17. The rest are chasing checks.
FLW Fantasy Fishing players also have a shot at cashing in on great prizes this week. At each event of the Tour season – six regular-season tournaments and the Forrest Wood Cup – more than $7,000 in cash and prizes are awarded to the top 50 Fantasy Fishing teams. There will even be cash prizes awarded to the top 10 teams at the end of the season based on cumulative point totals, including a $10,000 top prize.
It's summertime on the Tennessee River, and that can only mean one thing – ledge fishing. That's all the hype around this event. Pickwick is known to give up some tremendous smallmouth and largemouth opportunities from its offshore structure. While the TVA impoundment stands at an impressive 43,000 acres and sprawls 53 miles, it will most likely fish small for the majority of anglers who will scour the ledges for “mega schools” of bass. There might be some pros probing the shallow grass present on Pickwick, which could lead to some big bags over the first few days. However, it's yet to be seen whether or not that pattern can hold up for the entire competition. With that in mind, below are five pros that bear monitoring as competition begins Thursday.

Five to watch at Rayburn

By Kyle Wood - Tuesday, Mar. 25, 2014, 2:20 PM
Sam Rayburn Reservoir marks the third of six regular-season stops on the Walmart FLW Tour. It's the first time the FLW Tour has been back to Rayburn since the Open held in the fall 2012. With the season already a third of the way over, the race is beginning to tighten for the Angler of the Year title along with earning valuable points to qualify for the Forrest Wood Cup Aug. 14-17. Rayburn is a massive fishery that sprawls nearly 115,000 acres of grass, stumps and offshore structure. Sight-fishing is predicted to play a vital role, however, both pre- and postspawn patterns shouldn't be ruled out. With that in mind, below are five pros that bear monitoring as competition begins Thursday.
