Sudden Death: Let the Race to 28 Pounds Begin

As the week of an MLF event progresses, the intensity levelincreases. In the Elimination Rounds, there are 10 pro anglers per day and theatmosphere is a bit more casual as pros joke and jab with each other a littlebefore the day begins. After all, no one has any practice or local informationfor an upper hand; everyone is at ground zero, together.

The Sudden Death Rounds, however, are a much different story.After 30 pros get whittled down to 12 – six anglers compete each day – thendown to only six after Sudden Death, the tension in the air gets a bit thick.Such was the case at the Big Slough boat ramp at Pool 9 on the Mississippi River as six pros pulled up to beginSudden Death Round 1 of the Jack Link’s Major League Fishing 2016 General TireSummit Cup.

Adding to the intensity of the fourth day of the event wasthe talent pool emerging from their trucks and climbing into their boats: GregHackney, Andy Montgomery, Gary Klein, Ott Defoe, Edwin Evers and last butcertainly not least, Kevin VanDam.
