Tharp off and running on Beaver
26.Apr.2012 by Brett Carlson
ROGERS, Ark. – As expected, Beaver Lake delivered a little bit of everything on day one of the Walmart FLW Tour Major. A few prespawn bass were caught, some spawners were plucked from beds and lots of postspawn fish made their way to the scale. As it always is on Beaver, quality was hard to come by. But considering the bright, calm conditions, the bite wasn't too bad.
Leading the pack is EverStart pro Randall Tharp, who claimed his first FLW Tour win less than three months ago on Lake Okeechobee. Although there are no giant 8-pounders or thick mats to flip on the White River impoundment, Tharp once again has that look in his eye – that scary gaze that means he's on something special.
