On March 10th, 2018, the bass fishing community lost a true legend. In honor of his memory and his legacy, we wanted to share a piece he and Elite Pro Bernie Schultz did together back in the summer of 2005.
Although the repeat eluded Randy Howell, the 2014 Bassmaster Classic champion gained valuable insight during the 2015 event on Lake Hartwell. Finishing 15 spots behind that year’s champ, South Carolina’s local favorite Casey Ashley, Howell got to know the lake a lot better and he’s hoping that insight will serve him well when this year’s Classic visits this Savannah River reservoir March 16-18.
Over the course of his long professional career, GYCB Pro Dave Lefebre has established himself as one of the most consistent anglers on tour. The long time FLW and current Bassmaster Elite Series Pro is one of the most well versed anglers in the sport. As well rounded as he is, Lefebre is perhaps most often identified for his proficiency and skill with a jig.
Fletcher Shryock's journey to the top of the bass fishing world is a great story. The former professional motocross racer started fishing at a very young age. After a shoulder injury derailed his racing career his focus returned to the sport he loved as a child. His meteoric rise from club angler to professional is nothing short of amazing. “In 2009 I started fishing tournaments and by 2011, I was fishing the Elites (Bassmaster),” said Shryock.
By nature, we tournament anglers tend to be well prepared and safety-conscious on the water, maybe a little more so than others. But after the tragic loss of one of our own several weeks ago on Lake Okeechobee, we thought revisiting some water-safety tips would encourage us all to be even more vigilant out on the water.
Hey folks, this is Bassmaster Pro Randy Howell.
The fishing season has come to an end and now it's time for our favorite annual event, the King's Home Kids Fishing Event and boat giveaway.
At the bottom of this message you will see the link to donate for your tickets for the boat giveaway on November 18th. We have a goal of 2,000 tickets this year and if everyone helps spread the word, we can break our record from last year!
Lake Pleasant in Arizona is one lake where anglers must learn to adapt to changing conditions. The lake is known for extreme changes – the lake level fluctuates as much as 100 vertical feet every year, which means that the fish move constantly. If you don’t learn how to follow them, you’ll blank. Charlie Ponder, a tournament angler who fishes Pleasant often, knows how hard this can sometimes be.
