Dan Morehead's Magic.

Dan Morehead of Paducah, KY., used every bit of his local knowledge to win the FLW EverStart Championship on Kentucky Lake. Everyday, the leader board shuffled due to moody bass and fluctuating weather. Morehead put together consistent limits throughout the tournament and save his best for last. Sunday's creel totalled 19-05, Dan's best bag of the week and the heaviest of the final day. He edged out Jim Tutt of Texas by 6 pounds. More details will follow on how he won. Speculation is very high that the Alabama rig, a multi-lure contraption with fever pitch popularity, played a vital role in Dan Morehead's win.
