Being in the right place, and at the right time, seems to be key in this tournament. You must be on a prime spot when the feeding window occurs, which happens when the largemouth feed on shad.
But how do you know when to determine that timing? For John Cox, it comes down to staying on the move, just trying to line up the timing of a stop with the fish schooling and feeding on the baitfish.
"Yesterday, I didn’t move enough but today that’s going to change," he said. "I only got a few bites just after I got to a spot, and then they'd shut down."
Cox believed the shutdown was caused by these overly pressured fishing wising up to the fishing pressure.
"Today, I’m going to move more in order to stay in play about being in the right place at the right time."
