Full field anticipates prespawn pattern


ROGERS, Ark. (March 28, 2013) – The Walmart FLW Tour on Beaver Lake presented by Kellogg’s will return to Rogers, Ark., April 11-14 for the third event of its 18th season. Hosted by the Rogers Convention & Visitors Bureau, the tournament will feature a full field of the world’s best bass pros and co-anglers casting for top awards up to $125,000 cash in the Pro Division and up to $25,000 cash in the Co-angler Division.
“Last year when we were here the spawning phase had already finished,” said Folgers pro Scott Suggs of Bryant, Ark., who has career winnings of more than $1.6 million dollars in FLW competition. “It’s going to be a little different this year. We just had some snow down here last week, and we will definitely still be fishing major prespawn patterns when the tournament starts.”
Suggs suggested that fishing may be a little tougher than previous Tour visits to Beaver Lake, but that a good number of fish would still be caught. He said tournament anglers would be employing multiple different prespawn techniques and presentations to catch their bass. Jerkbaits, crankbaits, jigs and finesse fishing with shaky-head rigs are all expected to produce, and Suggs predicted that some anglers will definitely be opting for an umbrella rig.
“I’m not sure how much runoff they got from the snow last week, but the lake has been about five feet low lately. It’s slowly coming up, but that’s going to take some areas out of the mix. The standing timber will make it difficult to get to some banks,” Suggs said.
Suggs predicted that the winning angler would have a final weight right around 56 pounds with a daily average 14 pounds a day.
“Chances are someone is going to smash them and catch a big weight, especially on day one,” Suggs continued. “The key to winning will be finding fish that will replenish, though. A lot of times you will see an angler have a great day, and then go out the next day and be very disappointed. Find the areas that will replenish – that’s the whole deal to winning at Beaver Lake.”
