Suggs has hiccup on way to dominant title run

Scott Suggs of Bryant, Ark., heads into the finals of the FLW Tour   Lake Ouachita event in second place.Although it looked as if Scott Suggs was going to win the tournament trophy going away after two days of stellar fishing, the native of Bryant, Ark., suffered a setback in today’s competition after only managing to bring 10 pounds, 13 ounces to the scales at Friday’s weigh-in.

“I really didn’t stumble today,” said Suggs. “I got six keeper bites and lost a really good fish this morning. I fished my guts out today. But it just goes to show you how humbling this sport can be. At least I’ll have another chance to win this tomorrow. And you can’t ask for more than that.”
