SPRING CITY, Tenn. – Anglers on the Bass Pro Tour are gearing up to see some new water as the General Tire Stage Five on Watts Bar Lake Presented by Covercraft rapidly approaches June 4-9.

This Tennessee River impoundment is a little-known commodity for most of the 80-angler field. Knowledge is power in tournament bass fishing, so a couple of Spring City, Tennessee, locals might have an edge as practice begins on June 2.

Watch as John Murray and Wesley Strader weigh in on the upcoming competition and what they believe Watts Bar Lake will bring to the table for the field of 80 anglers. While Strader “cut his teeth” on the Tennessee fishery, Murray moved to the area six years ago and has been a fishing guide there since.
