Beginning on June 30, fishing fans can gear up for the Bassmaster Elite Series postseason by participating in the Toyota Tundra Fan Favorite Contest. The contest, which will run through July 25, will determine which one of the 12 Bassmaster Elite Series postseason qualifiers is the 2010 Toyota Fan Favorite.
Fans can go to www.bassmaster.com/vote and select their favorite angler. With the vote, participants will be automatically entered into a contest, which will award daily prizes Monday through Friday of each week of the contest, including a $100 Bass Pro Shops gift card and Berkley baits.
The grand prize, a Nitro Z-7 boat powered by a Mercury 150 Optimax dressed in a custom trailer and boat wrap, will be awarded on Friday, July 30. The winner will be revealed on the Bassmaster Elite Series postseason stage at the Evan Williams Bourbon Trophy Triumph in Montgomery, Ala.
Included within the voting page will be videos from all 12 Postseason qualifiers — the entire list is below — explaining why they should be the fan favorite. With luminaries such as 2007 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year Skeet Reese and five-time AOY Kevin VanDam in the field, fans will have a tough choice. Voting will be based on each fan's opinion with the angler compiling the most votes being named the 2010 Toyota Fan Favorite.
The postseason, Toyota Trucks Championship Week, is set for July 24-31 and will be played out once again on two productive Alabama fisheries.
The first leg, the July 24-25 Ramada Trophy Chase, returns to Lake Jordan out of Wetumpka. The finale, the Evan Williams Bourbon Trophy Triumph, is slated for July 30-31 on the Alabama River from Montgomery. Below is the complete list of anglers competing in the postseason.
