Tharp with 2, Jocumsen has 5

Oct 19, 2013

Randall Tharp set out this morning to work an area of boat docks in the lower lake. He's been there and done it. The result for 3 hours of hard work is 2 keepers in the livewell. Here's the new twist. We followed him to a riprap shoreline that's near the dam. Upon arrival he pulled out an Alabama Rig. He's sharing water with Carl Jocumsen. As we cruised by the Aussie stashed his rod from view of Tharp. Such is the game of tournament angling. The skies have cleared. So those wanting sunshine (Kenta Kimura) are getting plenty of it.
