Wheeler howls while Mark Rose takes command
It was no doubt once Mark Rose brought over 21 pounds to the scales, the ledge bite was on. Its common knowledge that he is a master at this technique, which include deep cranking, dragging football head jigs, as well as dropping flutter spoons over suspended schools.With my 30th place finish, and only 3 pounds off the top 20. I found my two day limits far back of a creek south of Decatur. With the heavy rains we had prior to the first day start, I fished flooded lay downs using ThorAks swim jigs with the GenX Bug trailer by Garneau Baits. I also used a shallow running crankbait on these same lay downs. I caught 20 to 25 bass a day on this early fall pattern, but big fish had not reach the back pockets of the creek.Mark Rose went on to win the event by a 12 pound margin.
