Biffle Simmers with Confidence for 18-Pound Sudden Death Race

2016 Challenge Cup Sudden Death Round 1, Lady Lake, Florida

Technically, there is no practice for an MLF event; competition begins from a cold start without any warm up on the water. But by the time Sudden Death begins, those who have advanced through an Elimination Round have a day of fishing under their belts, which essentially serves as a practice day when going into Sudden Death.

Given that, those advancing are always looking to take their successful tactics from the Elimination Round to the Sudden Death Round, especially if the two lakes, or zones, are similar.

So when six anglers arrived at the Lakeshore Drive ramp on Lake Eustis to kick off the first round of Sudden Death of the Jack Link’s Major League Fishing 2016 Shell Rotella Challenge Cup, most were looking to rely heavily on their Lake Harris experience since Harris and Eustis are sister lakes joined by the Dead River.

Sudden Death Round 1 of the 2016 Challenge Cup will air Saturday, June 4, at 2 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel. Check here for the full TV schedule.


Local Florida pro Shaw Grigsby noted that Harris and Eustis were indeed very similar.


“Eustis is generally a little more stained with that green color than Harris, but other than that, the two are very similar – the same kinds of things work in both lakes.”

With that came the announcement from MLF officials that 18 pounds would stand as the Sudden Death cut-weight on Lake Eustis.

“I’d rather see it at 15 pounds,” Grigsby offered. “But I don’t think 18 pounds is out of range.”
