Top Lures of the Mississippi River
Randall Tharp – 3rd
To finish third, Randall Tharp relied on this selection of lures. A 1/2-ounce 4×4 Randall Tharp Signature Series Jig with a 3.5-inch Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw was a top choice.
Casey Ashley – 9th
To finish ninth, Casey Ashley used a swim jig and Texas-rigged soft plastics. The 1/4- and 3/8-ounce Greenfish Tackle Swim Jig, rigged with 3-inch Zoom Fat Albert Grub was a top choice. So was a Texas-rigged 3.5-inch Zoom Z Craw Jr., 3/O Mustad Denny Brauer Grip-Pin Max Flippin’ Hook, and 3/8-ounce weight.
Wesley Strader – 12th
To finish 12th Wesley Strader used soft plastics and a bladed jig. That choice was a 3/8-ounce Z-Man Chatterbait with 3.5-inch Zoom Z Craw Jr. for a trailer. He also used a 4-inch Zoom Z Hog and 6.25-inch Zoom Fluke Stick.
