From Major League Fishing
TULSA, Okla. - Size versus numbers is the name of the game in Major League Fishing's fifth Challenge Cup webisode.
Two anglers leap from early frustration to the top of the pack, and they utilize different strategies to do so. One angler catches a high number of bass, while the other scores with fewer, but substantially larger, fish.
"The anglers face tough post-front conditions," said Major League Fishing Commissioner Don Rucks. "And what's interesting about this day of fishing is that it puts a spotlight on the strategy choices you have to make in Major League Fishing. I'll bet I've heard a dozen of our anglers pose the question if is it better to catch 20 one- to two-pound fish or try to catch a few giants. That question comes front and center this week."
The fifth webisode in the Challenge Cup series follows action during Sudden Death Day 2. The webisode can be seen by visiting www.majorleaguefishing.com/advancecast/. The first three Elimination Days of competition - featured in Webisodes 1-3 - involved eight anglers fishing each day. The four anglers with the highest total weight of fish caught from each day advanced to the semifinal Sudden Death round.
The Sudden Death round, however, features a 40-pound qualifying cutline. The first two anglers to reach 40 pounds advance to the championship round.
Elimination round qualifiers Todd Faircloth, Alton Jones, Kelly Jordon, Mike McClelland, Takahiro Omori and Skeet Reese compete on the second day of the Sudden Death round.
