He also talks about his approach to fishing Cherokee, locating fish, selecting his bait, catching fish with his Lowrance sonar electronics and managing his fish through the 4-day tournament.

Randall Tharp 8th Place Cherokee Lake

Pete and Joe welcome Bass University instructor Randall Tharp to talk about how he finished in the top 12, doing something different than the rest of the anglers in the tournament, fishing a jig, primarily for largemouth. Tharp talks about coming prepared to fish 6lb line & damiki rigs, but how he was thankful to be able to do well with a jig and heavy tackle. Tharp talks about where the fish were, why he believed they were there and why he believes the jig outperformed the crankbait in those same locations on Cherokee Lake.
