John Cox and custom rod building are inseparable. Like the big bang, custom rod building brought life back to his inconsistent fishing career and now, Cox is the FLW custom angler to beat.
As John Cox cast his career towards professional fishing, his experience of fishing with friends and family shaped his future determination. Transitioning from Florida’s bass fishing to catching bass across the nation, John Cox forged his fate as a Forrest Wood Cup Champion through friendship, fatherhood, and MHX.
Mud Hole Custom Tackle’s Pro FLW Bass angler, John Cox, had a solid 12th place finish in the first FLW event of the year held at Lake Okeechobee.
We recently spent a day on the water with John, and got the low-down on his recipe for success. Hint: It involves fishing the custom MHX rods he builds himself!
