All-American Top 5 Patterns – Day 2

All-American Top 5 Patterns – Day 2

As many projected, the weights on day two of the 2018 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League All-American on Cross Lake fell off substantially. Given Cross Lake’s small size and the intensive fishing pressure it receives as a suburban fishery, it simply couldn’t keep producing the weights seen on day one (eight limits of more than 20 pounds) for multiple days. As a result, those who rose to the top of the leaderboard today had to find something different to do to survive the day-two slump. Leader Randy Deaver found success by moving out of the cypress tree jungle, down into the main lake to a mixture of cypress trees and docks along the bank. READ MORE »

Deaver Takes Over at Cross Lake

Deaver Takes Over at Cross Lake

Randy Deaver lives just seven minutes from the ramp where the 2018 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League All-American takeoffs are being held this week, which means he’ll sleep comfortably in his own bed tonight with a 3-pound, 10-ounce lead over his good friend and day-one leader Nick LeBrun. Deaver, a fishing guide and firefighter from Blanchard, La., cracked a 25-3 limit today to go with 21-0 on day one. He’s the only angler in the field to catch two 20-pound-plus stringers, and most importantly, he figured something out today that he thinks he can repeat on championship Saturday when the All-American title will be settled.
