Huge congrats to Bass King Pro Team Angler Randall Tharp on taking home the victory at the 2013 FLW main event on the Red River!  This is the second year in a row that Tharp has had a fantastic showing at the Forrest Wood Cup, falling just short last year on Lake Ouachita to Scott Martin.  Randall took the outright lead after day one and never let it go, giving him the tournament crown and a $500,000 payday.

Said Tharp, “Last year when the schedule came out and I saw that the Cup was going back to the Red River and Shreveport, this was all I could think about; I knew that it was going to be my time. A lot of the lakes we go to don’t afford me the opportunity to win. But this is the way I like to fish. ”

Congrats, Randall - your hard work paid off and you deserve this victory.
