Suggs 3rd

Coming into the tournament many thought that in order to make the top 10 a five-bass limit each day would be absolutely necessary. But Scott Suggs proved that theory wrong as he caught only three keepers day two, but still finished the opening round in third. Those three keeper smallmouths weighed 6 pounds, 4 ounces, which pushed his two-day total to 14 pounds even.

Suggs is also fishing the Allegheny, but he’s only going through one lock. He’s using big, heavy soft plastics in green pumpkin. He started the day using red-flake color, but it didn’t work and he eventually switched back. Suggs colors the tips of his unspecified baits with chartreuse in hopes that they will stand out in the dirty water. More

5th: Suggs' Fish Hiding

Suggs keeps catching one fewer fish each day than he had the day before, but his three-fish sack today kept him in the hunt for his second Cup title.

He thinks he still has plenty of fish in his pool (one lock up the Allegheny), but he'll have to make the right adjustments to get back on them. Complete Story


4th: Suggs on the Move

Suggs put himself in position to make a run at becoming the first angler to win the Cup twice. He loaded up quickly after locking one time up the Allegheny and still has a considerable amount of water to try tomorrow.

"I'm spot-running," he said. "I'm not just sitting in one area, but I'm looking for key little places. Read More


Suggs broken up about runner-up

When Folgers pro Scott Suggs of Bryant, Ark., realized he missed out on the FLW Tour win at Table Rock by just 11 ounces, he had to take a few seconds to contain his emotions.

“I really felt like I had the strategy to go the distance,” said Suggs. “And to come that close – I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty torn up about it. Now all the second-guessing begins.”

Suggs 4th

After catching a limit worth 7-12, Folgers pro Scott Suggs is in position to win another $1 million at the Forrest Wood Cup (he was the first $1 million winner in 2007). But hot on his heels with 7-10 is Michael Iaconelli, who took fifth at the 2005 Bassmaster Classic on the Three Rivers. Ironically, the two are sharing water one lock up on the Allegheny River.

“When I got to my first spot, I was alarmed because it looked like solid mud,” Suggs said. “Then I caught one waiting for the lock. When I got to the next pool, I limited out in an hour; things just fell into place.” More
