Bassmaster Elite Series pro Jacob Powroznik has joined the pro staff of Bass Mafia, a division of Mafia Outdoors.
With the 2015 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro behind us, now we can look back with 20/20 hindsight at Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing teams we created.
At Classic Media Day, we asked the competitors and others for their best guesses at the Classic winning weight. Here's what they said.
The Classic competitors make the most of their final day of practice before the 2015 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro.
The Bassmaster Classic has no entry fee, but Virginia pro Jacob Powroznik spent $395 to improve his chances, not on fishing tackle, but trying to stay warm.
With a Bassmaster Rookie of the Year title and nearly $1 million in career earnings, Powroznik is positioned to represent any brand of rods and reels he deems worthy.
So many different patterns and techniques have a chance at being a factor on Hartwell that choosing your Fantasy Fishing team for the Classic may be difficult.
The 2015 Bassmaster Elite Series field is now set with a mixture of well-known veteran pros and young up-and-comers ready to zig-zag the country.
My rookie season on the Elite Series is over, and I finished lucky 13th overall. That put me 3rd in the Rookie of the Year race, behind my friends Jacob Powroznik and Justin Lucas, but every time I think about what that means I have to laugh a little.
Skeet Reese finished second at the Toyota Angler of the Year Championship, and like the first and third place finishers also fished Little Bay de Noc.
