Cory's redemption

After a disastrous event on the St. Lawrence River, in which he was plagued with boat issues, and ultimately accrued a costly penalty that made him miss the cut, Cory Johnston has rebounded this week at Cayuga Lake.

What is ironic is that his BASSTrakk score of 19-2 ranks as the heaviest thus far of the day. That is stark contrast to when there were 16 limits weighing that much or better (mostly better) on Friday.

The good news is that Cory is sixth in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year rankings. Today’s catch is braced by a pair of 4-pound class bass, with the remainder of the limit in the 3-pound range. A/nd should he fish tomorrow he can regain some of the AOY points that were lost last week.
