VanDam Clinches Bass Fishing’s Elite 8 Bracket Championship…WINS AGAIN!

BUFFALO, N.Y. — In the final round of the Bassmaster Classic Bracket event on the upper Niagara River, Michigan’s Kevin VanDam collected his 23rd B.A.S.S. win in a dramatic ending to this first-of-its-kind tournament.

In today’s championship match, VanDam was pitted against Brett Hite of Arizona, and fans were able to watch live on Bassmaster.com as the two Elite Series anglers clashed rods for a berth in the 2017 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro and a $10,000 first-place payday. Unlike the first two elimination brackets of this derby — and traditional Elite Series tournaments — where a five-fish limit was the goal, every legal-size bass caught today was weighed and counted.

What’s this about Southern Fishing News sponsors

Southern Fishing News began offerring sponsorships some time ago. Slider Fishing Lures was the very first fishing industry company that signed-on as a sponsor. There have been some questions about what these Southern Fishing news  “sponsorships” were all about.

Shoals Youth Bassmasters bag some Wheeler Lake bass in dripping humidity

Sixty-five young anglers in the Shoals Youth Bassmasters fished a very hot and very humid club tournament Saturday. Boat captains and their youth competitors launched out of First Creek ramp to try to capture a win on Wheeler Lake. Fishing was indeed tough and the muggy air with overcast skies did not help the angler’s morale any. However, some good fish were weighed in.

THE BETTER BAG FOR TOURNAMENT ANGLERS

NEW FRABILL WEIGH BAG SYSTEM TREATS FISH AND ANGLERS WITH CARE

 

The typical fishing tournament is anything but a relaxing day on the lake. Anglers race against the clock to catch the heaviest bag of fish possible – often under the worst possible weather conditions. And catching them is only part of the challenge; fish must be brought to weigh-in alive and healthy to avoid penalties. Throughout the day, competitors pamper their fish in high-tech livewells treated with expensive fish-care chemicals and devices that inject oxygen into the water at a molecular level – luxury health spas for fish, really – to ensure they remain in strong condition. Strangely, those fish are removed from their high-rent accommodations on the boat, and placed in what amount to oversized, leaky plastic freezer bags, constantly threatening to burst at the seams, for the final leg of their journey to the weigh-in.
