Justin Lucas and Philadelphia

1:54 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2014

I caught up with Bassmaster Elite Series pro Justin Lucas at the Abu Garcia booth today. We talked about the new Abu Beast reel (more about that in our product galleries). Lucas is 2/3rds though his rookie Elite season and sitting in 20th place in Angler of the Year points. That's strong in my opinion. I asked for his thoughts on the last three events of the season.

 

"I'm really focused on getting to the Classic," said Lucas, who has never competed in a Classic. And he's excited to fish the Delaware River at Philadelphia. "So far this year I had only fished on Table Rock and Chickamauga (two of the six Elite locations so far this year) prior to the tournament. At Philadelphia most of the anglers won't have experience there," he continued. "So I'm excited to compete on a pretty level playing field."
