The weather was funky and made it more of a challenge there’s no doubt. Tharp’s four-day total 54 pounds and two ounces putting him a neck above the rest. $500,000 sure smells good for a fishing profit, the Pro also got $1000 bonus from Power Pole, put that on the end of your hook and fish it.
Tharp knew he’s be fishing backyard bonus
The Pro began fishing in the club tournaments then BFL tournaments, and before he knew it was the Everstart Series all the way to the Forrest Wood Cup.
Last years’ defending champion, Jacob Wheeler came in second place
Not a bad showing for a defending champion. In the sport of fishing it’s skill plus the weight of the fish, landing the fish in the boat, a lot of variables come into play. You have to give it to Wheeler 49-2 for pulling out the fish and doing his homework to find them. It paid off at last year’s Forrest Wood Cup that doing your homework makes a difference. Wheeler received $75,000 for second place, it’s a big dip from first place but it works for four days of tournament fishing.
