PARIS, Tenn. — Fred Roumbanis landed the biggest bass of the first two tournament days Thursday, an 8-pound, 4-ounce brute. While he wouldn't say exactly what lure produced the big girl, he did offer up that "it was pretty scary catching it on light line." He caught the fish on a small grassy ridge that produced another large bass in practice. Roumbanis believes it might have been the same fish.
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 field is full of past ROY winners at the Tennessee Triumph.
