Johnson amassed a five-fish limit weighing 20 pounds, 8 ounces on Day 1 of the Central Open #2.

SHREVEPORT, La. — Aaron Johnson has a strategy that other local anglers might want to try when fishing tournaments on their home waters.

Johnson decided to skip the final day of practice for the Bass Pro Shops Central Open on the Red River and went to work instead. Even though he lives close to the river, Johnson said he limits the amount of time he spends on his home waters.

“The river is pretty rough on my equipment so I don’t come here that often unless I have a tournament,” said the 41-year-old Johnson. The sales and marketing manager from Shreveport practiced on Saturday but skipped Sunday to spend time with his family. He then resumed practicing Monday and Tuesday and found five spots that were holding bass.
