Eastern Open - Wink Makes Big Debut

This week is Nicholas Wink’s first time fishing Florida waters, but you wouldn’t know it from the Mohrsville, Pa. angler’s impressive debut by grabbing the Day 1 lead of the Basspro.com Bassmaster Eastern Open on the Kissimmee Chain with a 14-pound limit anchored by a 5-pounder.

Wink noted that his knowledge of finesse tactics played a big role in his opening round success. When he found himself struggling for bites, downsizing his bait selection and switching to a more strategic color got the ball rolling for him.
