Johnston vs. Johnston

Are we about to see the very first head-to-head championship battle between two brothers in the 50 years of B.A.S.S. competition? It sure looks like it. And it’s going to be fun to watch.

Chris Johnston and Cory Johnston are going back and forth on the BASSTrakk leaderboard. It’s already documented the two brothers work together and have since beginning to compete in tournaments.

“I’d like to see him win,” Chris said in a behind the scenes video interview.

“It could be either one of us and that’s what counts,” added Cory in a separate interview.

There is still sibling rivalry blood between the two talented Canadians. The question was then asked about whether or not the two anglers really want to beat each other. Do they really go all in on sharing info and water?

“Well, sometimes I’ll flip him the bird if he gets on my spot,” admitted Chris.

There will be none of that this week. The brothers are sharing what Chris said is “the best two spawning areas in the lake.”

“There are prespawners everywhere and we just hope they keep moving up.”

Moving up is an understatement. Some already have. All it takes is looking at the weights of the two brothers.

No matter what, and even if neither wins, it’s going to be fun to watch.
