PARIS, Tenn. – Through out the practice period of the EverStart Series Championship on Kentucky Lake, well-known Kentucky Lake pro Dan Morehead privately maintained that at least one of the four tournament days he was going to go big with the Alabama rig.
“I’ve been to some of my old stomping ground with the rig and it’s been unbelievable,” Morehead said before the tournament began. “I’m not going to sit here and say that I’m going to catch 20 pounds on it everyday – I think I can realistically catch 12 to 15 pounds a day on it for sure. But at least one of those four days it’s going to get right and I’m going to have 20 pounds with it.”
And today was that day. After calling his shots with daily catches of 15-3, 12-12 and 14-0 the last three days, Morehead saved the best for last, hauling in a final-day catch of 19 pounds, 5 ounces and giving him a four-day total of 61 pounds, 4 ounces.
