The weather started out wet and rainy and ended up sunny and beautiful, but despite the wildly varying conditions at the FLW Tour event presented by T-H Marine at Lake Cumberland, bait selection for the top 10 pros remained fairly consistent. A few pros threw jigs and worms, but jerkbaits and spinnerbaits fished tight to the bank along the sprawling reservoir’s many coves and cuts were the majority choices for the last-day anglers. Here’s what they used.

Scott Martin’s winning pattern

Complete results

 

1. Scott Martin caught most of his winning bag on an unspecified jerkbait and a Bomber Long A wake bait.

 

2. Barry Wilson did most of his damage at Cumberland by throwing a prototype BOOYAH square-bill crankbait.

 

3. Terry Bolton used a 3/4-ounce chartreuse and white double-willow Accent spinnerbait with a pearl white Zoom Split Tail Trailer to catch the bulk of his 57-5 bag.  

 

4. A SPRO McStick 110 jerkbait in chartreuse shad was the ticket for Matt Reed’s fourth-place finish.

 

5. Scott Canterbury used an unspecified deep-diving jerkbait and a Dirty Jigs Scott Canterbury Flippin' Jig tipped with a NetBait Paca Slim to amass his 55-7 total.

 

6. Chris Mccall of Palmer, Texas, relied heavily on a trio of lures, including a double-bladed Santone Lures Pretender spinnerbait with a pink skirt and a pink blade, a Lucky Craft Slender Pointer MR112 jerkbait, and a Megabass Vision 110 jerkbait.

 

7. Auburn, Calif., pro Cody Meyer caught every fish he weighed with a 3 3/4-inch Strike King Rage Swimmer.

 

8. A Luck-E-Strike STX jerkbait in herringbone chartreuse and a white/chartreuse Chopper spinnerbait with chartreuse and gold blades were Casey Scanlon’s go-to baits.

 

9. Clark Wendlandt, who led the tournament on days two and three, says he fished primarily with a Strike King KVD J200 jerkbait and a Strike King 3XD crankbait.

 

10. South Carolina pro Anthony Gagliardi caught his top-10 bag with a Tightlines UV 6-inch finesse worm in a custom orange color.
