    The Forrest Wood Cup is the biggest tournament in bass fishing, and you’ve likely heard a lot of chatter about the anglers in the field, the fishing techniques and all the events that surround the tournament. But how much do you know about Lake Murray itself? We got into town early, and, rather than work, we decided to head out on the water for a tour of the lake. Here’s what we found.

    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.

    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.
