The fishing was tough throughout in the Walmart FLW Tour Invitational presented by Quaker State on Norris Lake, but the top 10 pros separated themselves significantly from the rest.

Watson’s Toad Tricks

Watson’s Toad Tricks

In the summer, on those hot, slick days, you just have to fish until you run into bass that are up shallow cruising for big shad or bluegills. You have to cover a lot of water. You might go all day and only get four or five bites on it, but generally they are going to be good-quality fish.

Watson on Whopper Ploppers

Watson on Whopper Ploppers

I like to throw a River2Sea Whopper Plopper, a Zoom Horny Toad and a buzzbait a lot. The best rule of thumb I can give you is to stick with the Horny Toad when the water is slick.
