EUFAULA, Okla. — Embracing the wind, rather than trying to duck it, played heavily into B.A.S.S. Nation Central Divisional leader Josh Wray’s successful pattern Wednesday on Oklahoma’s Lake Eufaula.

“I knew I could catch bigger fish if I’d stay where the wind was really hitting the worst and kind of driving everybody else away,” said the Arkansas B.AS.S. Nation angler. “I just followed the wind.”

Wray caught a five-bass limit weighing 14 pounds, 13 ounces on a day when limits were hard to come by — less than a dozen anglers caught five.

After catching a small limit early in the day, he kept battling the wind with his trolling motor, hoping to improve his bag.

“I culled three doing that, so it worked out,” he said. “Everything just went right today.”

A Green Forest Bass Club member from Omaha, Arkansas, Wray is fishing in his third B.A.S.S. Nation divisional. In 2011, he placed third in the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship as a non-boater, narrowly missing a chance to fish in the Bassmaster Classic.
