It didn’t last long, but while it did, Brent Ehrler got all he could. We’re talking about the open-water feeding activity that happened each morning on Lake Murray – site of the Forrest Wood Cup, where the pro from Redlands, Calif. took third place.

Ehrler, who won the FWC in 2006, caught several of his key fish each morning on Yamamoto D-Shads. We’ll address his specific rigging and tactics in a moment, but for perspective, we need to take a look at why his plan made sense.

To say that winning the Massachusettes Bass Federation State Championship on Lake Champlain at Ticonderoga was an emotional roller-coaster would be an understatement. I blew my outboard five minutes after blast-off, trolled to a spot I had never fished, and caught a 4.71 smallmouth on my first cast. And that was just on Day One!

Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz - 2014 Delaware River BASS Elite

When BASS announced Philadelphia as stop No.7 on the Elite Series schedule, it raised some concerns. Philly is a busy place — industrial and crowded—and the Delaware River serves as a major seaway for both military and commercial ships, so it’s hardly the type of venue we would expect to host a bass event.

Aside from a busy waterway, another concern was trailering our rigs through heavy traffic on unfamiliar roads and freeways…none of which were “free” by the way. To say the least, stress levels ran high, even before we ever hit the water.

Gagliardi Breaks Down Breaking Fish

Much has been said about Anthony Gagliardi’s Cinderella story victory at the Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray. The local pro with a lifetime of home lake experience nearly missed his chance to compete in front of the home crowd when an inadvertent rules violation caused a heart-breaking disqualification at the season’s opening event on Lake Okeechobee.

Rightfully so, many reporters – myself included – pointed to Gagliardi’s diligence, his faith, his resilience as key factors in his amazing comeback performance. Those are good points, valid points, but we also can’t discount the fundamental truth that the guy’s a darn good fishermen. Many examples surfaced during the Cup, but one in particular was Gagliardi’s in-depth explanation of his use of the Yamamoto D-Shad.

When the weather's hot and the fishing's tough, Larry Nixon knows just where to look for largemouth action – a spot with shade and shelter, along with cooler temperatures and comfortable oxygen levels. That could mean a few different scenarios, but day in and day out, Nixon will always give lily pads a good lookin' when the sun's a cookin'.
