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.
Read the transcript of the chat below in its entirety. You can also read transcripts of Twitter chats with other pros here. And keep up with the pros, B.A.S.S. news and fishing tips by following @BASS_Nation on Twitter.
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.
If you could have an unlimited supply of one bait (lure or plastic) for life, what would you choose?
That's tough. But I'd choose a 4-inch Berkley Power Hawg.
Who would you put on your Fantasy Fishing team for Dardanelle?
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
Question 2 for Jacob Powroznik - If limited to 5 rod/reel combos to fish entire season, what would they be?
Verocity 7-6 heavy and Abu Garcia 7:1 reel — this is what I would use the whole time
Cngrts on the win.I was your coangler on SML. For the Potomac, what would you recommend for when the water gets extremely muddy.
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.
Also, what's your favorite creek on the Potomac.
@DaveHeisler Aquia Creek.
Do you have anything fun planned for your Elite winnings?
I think we’re going to have a party when we get home – a cookout and gathering of all the friends
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?
I guess I'm undefeated! If you want a shot at the title, come on!
When cactus jack lost his ear in your match in Germany, what was the scene like? How surreal was that?
He needed to clean his ear. He had a lot of wax in it.
When did you develop the power bomb?
Back in 1959.
Jacob what technique or lure has pulled you out of a jam the most in your career? #congrats
That would be a wacky worm. I like the green pumpkin and I dip both ends in chartreuse to add more flash
Thanks! Love a wacky worm gonna have to try dipping each end!
How do you effectively fish the Mississippi river?
Go to the oxbows and places you can find clearer water.
Congrats on the win! Excited to see another rookie win! Which other rookies should we look out for this year?
I heard Mercer say JPow, but you should consider being The Roz.
He started out with JProz, but I like that better than JPow.
What's your favorite summer time bait for back home on the James river?
A 4-inch Ring Worm.
Thanks for joining us today, @JacobPowroznik! And good luck this weekend on Lake Fork and on Dardanelle next week.
Thanks, and hope to do this again soon after another win!
