MANY, La. — Jacob Powroznik will answer any question, no matter how weird.

Fans learned that during a B.A.S.S. Twitter chat with the Toledo Bend champion when one fan, who apparently thought Powroznik favored wrestler Big Van Vader, asked him wrestling questions.

Powroznik said, "I don't even know how to answer that," but then in a split second offered equally ridiculous answers. One question, for instance, was when did Powroznik invent the Power Bomb, a wrestling move that incorporates a body slam.

"Back in 1959," said Powroznik.

(Powroznik was born in 1978.)

You can't stump Powroznik. He's got a sense of humor that' sly and dry.

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation 

Welcome, @JacobPowroznik, to the #basschat! Congratulations on your Toledo Bend victory.

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

It was a relief to win something big time like that! I wish the fans could feel what it feels like to actually win a tournament.

 

Taylor Raglin ‏@TaylorRaglin 

If you could have an unlimited supply of one bait (lure or plastic) for life, what would you choose?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

That's tough. But I'd choose a 4-inch Berkley Power Hawg.

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed 

Who would you put on your Fantasy Fishing team for Dardanelle?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

I'd pick @MarkDavisAngler @Kevin_VanDam TFaircloth @RandallTharp & myself! I've been several times & done well there.

 

Bass Fishing Tips ‏@BassFishnTips 

Question 1 for Jacob Powroznik - If limited to 5 baits to fish entire season, what would they be?

@LivingstonLures Dive Master Jr., Ninja Stick & jerkbait, plus a ChatterBait and a Wacky Worm

 

Bass Fishing Tips ‏@BassFishnTips 

Question 2 for Jacob Powroznik - If limited to 5 rod/reel combos to fish entire season, what would they be?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

Verocity 7-6 heavy and Abu Garcia 7:1 reel — this is what I would use the whole time

 

Dave Heisler ‏@DaveHeisler 

 Cngrts on the win.I was your coangler on SML. For the Potomac, what would you recommend for when the water gets extremely muddy.

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

Hey, man! Try to find clear water; those fish don't bite when it's muddy. If you have to fish the muddy water, try a Mr. Super Bass spinnerbait or @LivingstonLures crankbait in a loud color.

Dave Heisler ‏@DaveHeisler 

Also, what's your favorite creek on the Potomac.

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

@DaveHeisler Aquia Creek.

Jennifer Dome ‏@BhamJen 

Do you have anything fun planned for your Elite winnings?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

I think we’re going to have a party when we get home – a cookout and gathering of all the friends

 

Bass Guys ‏@bassguysdotcom 

When you lost the belt to Davey Boy Smith at slamboree via DQ did you feel you would have won if not for the folding chair?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

I guess I'm undefeated! If you want a shot at the title, come on!

Jay Davis ‏@jaybassguy 

When cactus jack lost his ear in your match in Germany, what was the scene like? How surreal was that?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

He needed to clean his ear. He had a lot of wax in it.

Jay Davis ‏@jaybassguy 

When did you develop the power bomb?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

Back in 1959.

 

Fish Catchmore ‏@Catch_more_fish 

Jacob what technique or lure has pulled you out of a jam the most in your career?  #congrats

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

That would be a wacky worm. I like the green pumpkin and I dip both ends in chartreuse to add more flash

Fish Catchmore ‏@Catch_more_fish 

Thanks! Love a wacky worm gonna have to try dipping each end!

 

B•I•G•M•A•C ‏@KyleBIGMAC37 

How do you effectively fish the Mississippi river?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

Go to the oxbows and places you can find clearer water.

 

Emily Hand ‏@ejhand 

Congrats on the win! Excited to see another rookie win! Which other rookies should we look out for this year?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

I'd have to say @RandallTharp or @justinlucasbass

 

chris mitchell ‏@ditchell 

I heard Mercer say JPow, but you should consider being The Roz.

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

He started out with JProz, but I like that better than JPow.

 

Ceeeeeej ‏@ccombs90x 

What's your favorite summer time bait for back home on the James river?

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

A 4-inch Ring Worm.

 

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation 

Thanks for joining us today, @JacobPowroznik! And good luck this weekend on Lake Fork and on Dardanelle next week.

Jacob Powroznik ‏@JacobPowroznik 

Thanks, and hope to do this again soon after another win!
