Cox on top

That’s really just a play on words, as John Cox is enjoying early success with a topwater at Lake Fork Dam. There are three conditions that seem to be making it good. Those are cloud cover, wind and riprap, and isolated piles of boulders, likely byproducts of the dam repairs. The wind is blowing parallel to the shoreline. Cox is making repeated passes across the area.

A 5-pound largemouth (Cox holding up) and another weighing 5-10 (boating the fish) have him in 4th place on the BassTrakk scoreboard and anchor his total weight of 16-5.
