‘In the big tournaments, you keep doing what you have been to get here,’ that is what Nick Deering tells himself heading into the 2018 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League All-American Cook Lake, Bossier City, La.  Starting out confidently with the other boaters.

Local Angler Nick LeBrun is leading after day 1 with 26.9 lbs, he has not fished Cook Lake recently, which is why a number of others stuck around 22 pounds.

Nick Deering is sitting at 39th with a 9 pound bag. He plans to go back to work  by putting the puzzle back together for Day 2 and gather a GIANT bag for weigh in…

Good Luck Nick…
