Big Bite Lookback Kentucky Lake

<b><font color=green>Big Bite Lookback  Kentucky Lake</font></b>

John Voyles wasn't too upset about missing the Top-10 cut at the Kentucky Lake FLW Tour by a mere 10 ounces. Considering what he had to resort to on day 3, he was happy to make such a strong run at advancing to the final day.

"I was fortunate to catch what I did," said the 6th-year pro from Indiana. "I had to go to plan D plans A, B and C were covered up by locals. They were all one-cast places, and all of those guys were right on the cast."

That fourth option wasn't looking to hot at first, either, as he was initially unable to locate the school of fish he'd discovered in practice.

"I'd moved out to 25 feet and I was about to turn the boat around, then my dropshot went 'thump.'''

He eventually boxed a 20-pound stringer. That was far shy of the 24-07 he'd caught the previous day, but that bag had included a 7 1/2-pounder.

He threw the dropshot off and on throughout the derby. His main program was fishing a Secret Lures Ledge Shaker jighead with a big worm, and he caught several quality specimens with a spoon late on day 2 to go with his monster.

"That was the only place I could get bit on the spoon," he said. "I had the big one and four 15-inchers when I went to this one point and wrecked them."

The finish was the second-best of his Tour career, surpassed only by a 9th at Lake Champlain in 2012.
