When Luke Clausen won the first wintertime Bassmaster Classic on Lake Toho in February 2006, the natural assumption for many fishing fans was that he was about to become a full-fledged star on the B.A.S.S. circuit. Then he walked away. With a lucrative, but complicated sponsorship deal already in place with Chevrolet and FLW, Clausen elected to remain on the FLW Tour where he’d already been a star for two seasons.
