SHREVEPORT, LA — Major League Fishing competitor Shaw Grigsby explains in the video below how the Insight map on his Lowrance HDS units were instrumental in helping him fish Louisiana’s challenging Caddo Lake in Elimination Round 1 of Major League Fishing’s 2015 Challenge Cup. The home for fishing maps exclusive to Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units is now www.gofreemarine.com. (Article continues below video player)
MLF’s Louisiana competition begins on the heels of a severe thunderstorm system that rolled through northwestern Louisiana with copious rains, hail and even a tornado sighting or two, more than enough bad weather to cancel the day’s fishing and push it to the following morning. That left Grigsby and the other Elimination Round #1 anglers facing bluebird skies, cool early morning temperatures and the potential for rising and muddy water.
Louisiana is home to some of the best bass fishing anywhere in the country. Numerous professional bass tournament events, including six Bassmaster Classics, have been held in the Sportsman’s Paradise in the past two decades. But while familiar names like the Louisiana Delta, Venice, the Atchafalaya Basin, the Red River and Toledo Bend are all etched into bass tournament lore, when the Challenge Cup competition rolls into Shreveport for six rounds of highly competitive fishing, none of those names will be on the list. Where will the MLF pros fish next? Tune in next week to find out!
