John Soukup from The Bass Tank won the very first NPFL tournament on Lake Eufaula last week. In this winner's circle interview, John shares why he targeted certain areas, what cover he was marking in practice, the baits he used to catch his tournament-winning fish and how he used forward-facing sonar to size up bass in the cover, and decide if they would help him that day, or if he should save those fish for the next day.
