Headed to Cory Johnston

I spent the first half hour of my day at the mouth of the Metropark where the Top 50 head out to their spots. And the waves were easily 3-footers—I’m already wet.

After I dropped my camera card off with Overstreet, my boater and I trailered the boat and are headed to a launch site in Detroit at the mouth of the Detroit River. 

The goal is to make a shorter run with the boat in relatively big seas to find Cory Johnston. Johnston is in third place in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of Year race, and he’s hungry. 

Plus, Johnston isn’t afraid of big waves. And that puts him in a fine position to improve his standings.

Stand by, we’re about to launch and go battle the waves for a few cool photos.
