Alton Jones' title of Bassmaster Classic Champion was only moments old when the folks from Toyota added an extra $7,500 to his half-a-million-dollar day. Six weeks prior to the Classic, Alton purchased a Toyota Sequoia, and quickly sent in his registration to be eligible for the brand new Toyota Trucks Bonus Bucks contingency program. Confident, yet humble, it's doubtful Alton was counting on getting his first bonus check as a result of winning the Bassmaster Classic, but as the highest placing registered Tundra or Sequoia owner in a Classic field, that's exactly what happened.
Casey Ashley, the bass bustin' kid from rural South Carolina with the million dollar smile and the voice of an angel, bagged $3,000 worth of Toyota Bonus Bucks following his 16th place finish at the Bassmaster Elite Series event at the Harris Chain of Lakes in Florida.

Hunters know that the difference between a successful hunt and coming home empty-handed usually hinges on the ability to get close to the quarry without being detected. When it comes to shallow water bass fishing in clear lakes, the same rule applies. Slammed lids, dropped rods, trolling motors cranked on high and sonar pings can all turn feeding bass into fleeing bass.
Tournament anglers fishing the second day of the Bass Pro Shops Southern Open on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes were greeted with overcast skies and intermittent rain as the dawn broke on Big Toho Marina.
