Moynagh Leads Walmart FLW Tour Major On Kentucky Lake Presented By OFF!

Moynagh Leads Walmart FLW Tour Major On Kentucky Lake Presented By OFF!
Jim Moynagh 's 21-pound, 11-ounce day-two catch handed him the lead with 3 1/2 pounds to spare.

MURRAY, Ky. - M&M's pro Jim Moynagh of Carver, Minn., has 18 career top-10's with FLW, but only one has come on Kentucky Lake - an eighth place finish in 2006. Moynagh has now put himself into strong contention to make it 19 after bringing the largest stringer of the day to the scales this afternoon. He is now leading a field of pros from all across the United States, Canada, Spain and Japan as they fish for a top cash award of up to $125,000 at the Walmart FLW Tour Major on Kentucky Lake presented by OFF!

Moynagh weighed in a five-bass limit on Friday weighing 21 pounds, 11 ounces to move to the top of the leaderboard after finishing day one in fifth place. After two days of fishing Moynagh has weighed in 10 bass totaling 40 pounds, 6 ounces, and now holds a 3 pound, 8 ounce lead over Straight Talk pro J.T. Kenney of Palm Bay, Fla., who caught five bass today weighing 18 pounds, 4 ounces. Kenney has weighed in 10 bass totaling 36 pounds, 14 ounces after his first two days.

"Today went quite well for me," said Moynagh, who has career winnings of more than $1.1 million on the FLW Tour. "I was able to catch one of the bigger bags that I have ever caught as a pro. I actually caught more fish yesterday, but there were a lot of smaller ones in the mix. I avoided those areas today, and went to where I thought I could find the bigger bites.

"I had a good practice coming into this event," Moynagh added. "I found a lot of fish, and I certainly feel like I won't have a problem going out and catching fish here. It's just getting the right bites that is the trick."

Moynagh said that he had been fishing deep, and was avoiding making the long runs south to New Johnsonville or over to Lake Barkley as other anglers have been.

"I've been sticking to Kentucky Lake the whole time," he continued. "I just don't like the strategy of making the run down to New Johnsonville, especially considering where I'm sitting in the Angler of the Year points standings. I feel like it adds an extra bit of unnecessary gamble to the tournament when I figured that there are plenty of fish on the northern half of the lake. There are also a couple of tournaments going on down at that end of the lake this weekend, so if I were to make that long run there's no telling how much competition I might have for the prime spots down there.

"I've been staying out on the ledges, throwing a ¾-ounce All Terrain Tackle football head jig," Moynagh continued. "Today I was able to get one with a Carolina rig as well. The other nine bass that I have weighed in have come on the jig, though. I've got some other baits tied up too, so I feel like if I need to show the fish something a little different I can pick one of those up. I'm confident in my abilities, and I believe that I can make the proper adjustments and adapt if I need to.

"The gameplan for tomorrow will be to go out and catch a bigger bag than today," Moynagh joked. "I'm really not going to throw any major wrinkles into what I'm doing. A good fisherman always needs to stay open to adjustments for the unknown and unexpected, you just have to react and deal with it. Today was very manageable as far as boat control, but a terrible wind would make things awfully hard for me. I really hope for a similar day tomorrow."

Rounding out the top 20 pros that will fish tomorrow on Kentucky Lake are:

3rd: Kyle Mabrey, McCalla, Ala., 10 bass, 36-4
