Summit Cup Elimination Round Launches on Familiar Waters

Summit Cup Elimination Round Launches on Familiar Waters
Summit Cup Elimination Round Launches on Familiar Waters

When the MLF brigade pulled up to the Nelson Park Boat Ramp on Pool 7 of the Mississippi River to start the Jack Link’s Major League Fishing 2016 General Tire Summit Cup, it didn’t take long for the 10 pros fishing Elimination Round 1 to start comparing notes.

While many of the MLF competitors had a sneaking suspicion the Mississippi River would figure into the La Crosse, Wis., venue, none knew to what extent the river would play a role or even which pools or specific areas of the pools would be in play.

Pools 7, 8 and 9 are popular stops for various tournament circuits. Most notable, the Bassmaster Elite Series held events across these three pools in 2012 and 2013, meaning a majority of the MLF competitors had experience on the Mississippi. Hence, as an early fog lifted off of Pool 7 to reveal mats of vegetation, the pros’ thoughts and comments came to light simultaneously with the morning dawn.

Kevin VanDam was the first to offer up a reaction.
