The first day of the festivities was a day to remember for the cities of Shreveport and Bossier. The Forrest Wood Cup will forever leave their mark on the twin cities with their amazing planning and generosity. For Ultimate Bass the day started out with a warm welcome by the FLW staff, the ladies and gentlemen more than willing to help in any way possible. The evening led to dinner with the Pros at the Horseshoe Casino and a more than incredible presentation by the FLW staff. The anglers that have qualified for the Cup this year are among some of the most talented men in professional bass fishing.
Look for some of the best surprises this week! First there is David Fritts an all-time favorite, and then we have the youngest angler to ever win the Forrest Wood Cup Jacob Wheeler the defending Champion which should make this week’s tournament interesting to say the least
