UPCOMING EVENT: Costa FLW Series - 2019 - St. Lawrence River

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Cox leads Walmart FLW Tour on Red River presented by OFF!

SHREVEPORT, La. (May 20, 2011) - John Cox of Debary, Fla., caught a five-bass limit weighing 14 pounds even Friday to extend his lead on day two of the Walmart FLW Tour on the Red River presented by OFF!. His two-day catch of 10 bass weighing 28 pounds, 10 ounces gives him a commanding lead heading into the third day of the tournament. The top 20 anglers will fish day three and the top 10 will compete for the title on day four.

Cox fished the first two days of competition from a 17-foot boat powered by a 75-horsepower Mercury outboard with hopes the lighter rig would allow him to access shallow-water areas the other competitors could not. Cox said he made a two-hour run each way to his fishing spot.

"The whole way down there today I was thinking, `There's no way I'm getting in there,'" Cox said. "I got there and got ready to go in and my camera guy said, "You're going to go through that?' I said, `I hope so.' And it was a miracle we worked (the boat) back and forth and somehow got in there. When we got in there we were exhausted and sweaty, but it was worth it."

The gamble paid off; however, Cox said his strategy will have to change on the third day of competition. Cox said he caught bass in the secluded pond on the second day of competition on a Gambler Big EZ swimbait, but the lower water level will render the pond unfishable on Saturday.
"I'd have to get a canoe or something to get in there," Cox said. "It just ain't gonna happen. I've got a spot here I always fish. I'm going to go in there. Usually there's a few people in there and it usually hurts it, but there's only 20 of us fishing tomorrow. I think I'll be able to sight fish tomorrow.

"There's no telling what will happen," Cox said. " I'm just going to get five and maybe I'll see a big (fish) sitting there."

National Guard pro Brent Ehrler of Redlands, Calif., is in the No. 2 spot with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 21-6.
Rounding out the top 20 pros that will fish another day on the Red River are:
