Tommy Biffle is a seven-time B.A.S.S. winner. With more than $2 million in winnings, it should surprise no one that he's a dominant force on the Bassmaster Elite Series trail.

The veteran pro has 301 tournaments under his belt, not to mention the 18 Bassmaster Classics he's fished.

And he reminded everyone what a strong angler he is last month at the 2013 Bassmaster Elite Series Diet Mountain Dew Mississippi River Rumble presented by Power-Pole when he took home the $100,000 prize.

Biffle took fan questions today during the B.A.S.S. Twitter chat. What follows is the complete transcript, lightly edited for clarity.

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation

Welcome, Tommy Biffle, to the Twitter chat and congratulations on your Mississippi River win!

 

Tommy Biffle

I'm glad to be here on the Twitter chat. I hope to get a lot of questions and answers for you guys.

 

Steve Crew ‏@SteveCrew

Can a co angler do an open event and make a name for himself a good way to start?

Biffle

No, they can't make a name for themselves, but they can learn a lot and start picking up sponsors.

 

Joe Nixon ‏@jnixon24

Where are your favorite places to fish in Oklahoma.

Biffle

My favorite would have to be Fort Gibson here where I live. We have a lot of good lakes near where I live!

Joe Nixon ‏@jnixon24

Thank you for answering my question and good luck the rest of the season!

 

Mike Smith ‏@MikeAllenz28

Hi Tommy! I've heard you mention your past boat racing hobby, what boat did you have? Super fast outboard boat?? pics?

Biffle

Yes, I still have one. I have a Mirage with a Mercury that runs 120 in a 1/4 mile. I still love to race boats!

 

Cara Clark ‏@caradclark

What's the most important thing you learned from your dad about fishing?

Biffle

Go early, stay late!

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed

What is one thing you think most people don't know about you?

Biffle

I love to shoot Archery. I used to compete, but I don't get to do it like I use to!

 

Drew Sagely ‏@DREWSAGELY

Just fished a tournament on Fort Gibson how do you keep drum off of the bug?

Biffle

They like it! They're going to bite it. I've caught every species of fish on it, and that's a good thing!

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed

How did you find out about the @BrandonPalaniuk disqualification?

Biffle

I didn't know about @brandonpalaniuk until the next morning. Someone at the gas station told me.
