NW Basser Hobbs Moves Up To 7th At FW Cup

Ron Hobbs Jr. of Orting, Wash., brought in the day’s second largest haul of bass to move up five places at the Forrest Wood Cup in Georgia.

His 13 pounds, 5 ounces — only 3 ounces behind Larry Nixon’s limit today — also improves on yesterday’s 10 pounds, 14 ounces.

Cody Meyer of Grass Valley, Calif., leads with a total of 27 pounds, 6 ounces through day two of the four-day event held on Lake Lanier.

Jay Yelas, now of Corvallis, also moved up to 20th from 29th with an 8-pound, 11-ounce day.

Two other Northwest bassers, Rick Correa and Sean Minderman were eliminated, but go home with some prize money.

The Forrest Wood Cup is pro bass fishing’s most prestigious award; the winner stands to take home up to $600,000.
