John Cox told me yesterday after the weigh-in that he was considering starting Championship Sunday on Lake Sr. Clair. But he also said he didn’t want to.
“I would rather not catch fish than fish in the lake, “Cox said.
This morning however he told me before blast off that he was going to fish in the lake if it was calm. It was and he headed to his lake spot, but then changed his mind.
But he off and headed right back to the stretches of the St. Clair River he’s fished all week.
“I was going to go, and then I said I’m going to the river, “Cox said. “I was going to go to the lake, and then I said, ‘ I’m going to the river,’” Cox said.
He’s only got one 3-pounder in the live well. And he is moving around a lot.
At some point, he’s likely to make a long run up the river.
I might go to (Lake) Huron,” cox said yesterday. “I’ve got a place where it’s just one cast but I caught 5-pounders there during practice.“
