Lake Murray: By The Numbers

Lake Murray: By The Numbers

Here are a few tidbits about the previous two Forrest Wood Cups held at Lake Murray, which joins Lake Ouachita as the only venue to host the event three times.

> If the 2008 Cup was held using the format in use this week (cumulative weight), Michael Bennett (the eventual winner) would’ve been leading after day 3 with 43-05. In 2014, Brent Ehrler led after day 3 with 39-01.

> The Cup field in 2008 was 77 anglers. It was 45 in 2014 (co-anglers competed on days 1 and 2). This year, the field is 53 with no co-anglers.

> In 2008, FLW did not track individual big bass at the Cup, but research shows Carl Svebek had a 7-11 kicker on day 1. In 2014, Randall Tharp caught a 6-04 to take Big Bass honors.

> Here is a rundown of the heaviest stringers (15-plus pounds) caught at Lake Murray in the previous two Forrest Wood Cups held there.
