Morrow Takes Lead At Walmart FLW Tour On Lake Eufaula Presented By Quaker State

Morrow Takes Lead At Walmart FLW Tour On Lake Eufaula Presented By Quaker State
Troy Morrow weighed 18-1 on day two and raised his total to 39-9 - he'll carry the lead into the weekend.

EUFAULA, Ala. – Pro Troy Morrow of Eastanollee, Georgia, caught five bass weighing 18 pounds, 1 ounce Friday to take control of the leaderboard after day two of the Walmart FLW Tour at Lake Eufaula presented by Quaker State. Morrow’s two-day total of 10 bass weighing 39 pounds, 9 ounces gives him a 1-pound, 4-ounce advantage heading into the third day of competition in the nationally televised tournament, hosted by the Eufaula Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, that features 149 anglers competing for a top cash award of up to $125,000.


 


“The first few keepers I caught today came from the brush piles that I targeted yesterday,” said Morrow, who already has one top-10 finish on Tour this season. “I was stuck around eight pounds for a long time, so I decided to try new areas. In these areas the spots were close together. I found a stretch of brush piles and caught a good one at each. One of the piles did give me three 3-pounders. I could tell they were different from the old ones by the weight of the fish that were coming in. By 9:30 a.m. I had put together a quality limit.


 


“I picked at the piles and culled through 15 keepers,” continued Morrow. “Once I hit about 18 pounds I saw the storm was coming in and I decided to move up the lake. I’m going to have to re-fish a lot of my spots tomorrow because I crunched so many different piles today. I ended up burning through a little more than I thought I would have to in order to get to this point in the tournament.”


 


Morrow declined to talk specifics about his baits but did mention he had to make a change around 2 o’clock.


 


“By that time I had10 or 11 pounds, but knew I needed to switch,” Morrow said. “I wanted to guarantee that I was going to fish on day three. I did end up figuring out what I need to throw, so hopefully it holds up tomorrow. I have about 20 spots left that have good fish in them so that’s where I’ll be targeting.”
