PARIS, Tenn. — After a 30-minute run on Kentucky Lake from Paris Landing, Rick Morris put a spanking on the ol' largemouth on Day One. I can see why people get spoiled catching fish after being on this lake, because he caught one fish after another. After picking through a lot of smaller fish, Rick managed to bust a big one or two on each spot. He was using a cranking pattern that involved ledges, shell beds, and grass. The real key to his success will remain a secret until after the tournament because it's a technique he uses when it comes to cranking.

"The coffee scent was critical to my success. The fish didn't hold on to the lure very long. They seemed to like the coffee taste and held it just a moment longer than other plastics. That gave me the time I needed to set the hook."
