YAMAMOTO PRO TOM MONSOOR SWIMS INTO 2ND ON ATCHAFALAYA

Tom Monsoor is not yet a household name in many other parts
of the country. In the Midwest, however, he's known and
feared as the man you just can't beat. Worse yet, he does
most of his dominating with a closely-guarded swimming jig
of his own design. This weekend, Tom used his swimming jigs
to take second in the FLW Pro Tour event on Atchafalaya
Basin, Louisiana.

I caught up with Tom by phone on his long drive home to
Wisconsin yesterday. Listen in on our conversation during
which Tom reveals for the first time a few of his swimming
jig success factors.

ladle on a few more spoonfuls this week. So help yourself
