Hobbs Finishes 6th At Forrest Wood Cup

Orting, Wash., bass angler Ron Hobbs Jr. placed 6th in his first appearance at the Forrest Wood Cup, held on Lake Lanier in Georgia this past weekend.

He ended the championship tournament with the same weight and number of fish he had on day three — 35 pounds, 3 ounces and 15 bass — when his honey hole went dry.

“I had two main areas and I milked them for all they were worth,” he said. “In the end, my fish just ran out.”

However, he still walked away with $45,000.


Kevin Hawk of Ramona, Calif., took first with a total of 50 pounds, 14 ounces of bass over the four-day tournament, including 14 pounds, 13 ounces on Sunday.

He won $600,000.

A total of 78 pro bassers began the tournament, including another angler from Washington, Sean Minderman, and two from Oregon, Jay Yelas and Rick Correa.
