    Time really flies in professional fishing. It seems like yesterday that all of us were launching our boats on Okeechobee, with dreams of competing in the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup that begins this week on Lake Murray near Columbia, S.C.

    Charlie Ingram’s career as a pro angler tracks like the stock market chart of a blue-ribbon company: There are a few downturns along the way, but his graph trends generally higher. This year saw a definite uptick in Ingram’s profile when he qualified for the Forrest Wood Cup with a 31st-place showing in the Walmart FLW Tour Angler of the Year race.

    If preparation is the precursor to victory, then Spencer Shuffield is starting out in the hole. Not only did he not pre-practice at Lake Murray to prepare for the Forrest Wood Cup, he hasn’t even laid eyes on the lake since he fished the 2008 Forrest Wood Cup there. All he remembers about it is that it was the toughest championship he ever fished, and he’s competed in seven of them since beginning his FLW career as a co-angler in 2007.

    Although 22, Monti has the build of a slender teenager and a face to match. Still, though he’s not yet fleshed-out, he has man-sized ambition, and his career is progressing nicely along those lines.

    Rich and his wife, Frances, reside in Greenville, Texas. When he is not on the road, Rich enjoys volunteering at his local food bank. Seeking to bring an awareness of the need in some of the communities where the FLW tournaments are held, Rich invites people to bring cans of food to the FLW Expo.

    We caught up with this year’s first-timers to see what it’s like to be on the eve of the biggest tournament of their lives. And rather than weigh their odds, we asked each one to share his own expectations for the Cup.

    A lot of anglers equate smallmouths with rock and gravel bottoms in the summer, but they shouldn’t overlook weeds. Depending on the time of year and available forage, smallmouths will feed in vegetation just as heavily as largemouths.

    Tough, tough and tough – that’s the nearly universal word from pros who made trips to South Carolina’s Lake Murray to pre-practice for the Forrest Wood Cup before the lake went off limits July 28. No competitor will get to fish the lake again until the official practice begins on Aug. 3, the Sunday prior to the competition, and all seem hopeful that the bite will get at least a little bit better between now and then.
