Bull Shoals Lake proved to be a pleasant surprise during the TroKar Quest last week, mainly because the lake is on an upswing due to recent high-water years and a bass population that has exploded.
While I didn’t win at last weekend's Elite tournament, I am happy that two of the guys who did - Brandon Palaniuk and Britt Myers - used my Rapala baits.
After winning $100,000, Palaniuk plans to spend night sleeping in his pickup truck, just as he has every night this week.

Britt Myers left West Sugarloaf Creek, and we had no desire to follow him out of here
Mid-day has been when Britt Myers caught his best fish this week, and he's got to add a couple in the 4- to 5-pound range to improve significantly from the 13- to 14-pounds he got now. He has caught plenty of fish today, just nothing of any help since he moved from East Sugarloaf Creek to West Sugarloaf.
