Tournament Lessons

Sometimes, says Oklahoma pro Kenyon Hill, it's better to zig when everyone else zags, a lesson he learned at the Lake Dardanelle Elite 50 last spring near Russellville, Ark. Randy Howell won the event by swimming a jig through the shallows. In fact, just about all of the E-50 pros were targeting the grass, fishing tube baits, jigs and anything else they could swim through the leafy cover. Hill was doing the same thing throughout practice and was catching a few fish. But it didn't feel right.
