If Clunn can pull this one out, he'll be the only angler in B.A.S.S. history to win at least one tournament in five different decades — the 1970s, '80s, '90s, 2000s and '10s. How many other athletes even compete in five decades, much less compete at the top level and win? The anglers who have won in three different decades are Tommy Biffle, George Cochran, Woo Daves, Paul Elias, Shaw Grigsby, Davy Hite, Alton Jones, Roland Martin, Tommy Martin, Larry Nixon, Zell Rowland, Ron Shuffield, Kevin VanDam and David Wharton. Gary Klein and Denny Brauer have won in four. Now Clunn has a chance to win in each of five different decades dating back to his very first B.A.S.S. win at the 1976 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville.
