Palmer pockets bonus bucks at Toledo Bend 

Bassmaster Elite Series pro Luke Palmer leverages his 2023 Tundra's reliability and the Toyota Bonus Bucks program for a strategic advantage, earning an extra $3,000 at Toledo Bend with a technique that netted over 86 lbs of largemouth bass.

Bassmaster Elite Series professional Luke Palmer had an impressive 2023 season, showcasing his angling skills with a first Elite Series win at Santee Cooper, a second-place finish at Lake St. Clair, and qualification for the Bassmaster Classic at Grand Lake, Oklahoma. As we move into 2024, Palmer continues to build on his success, starting the season with a strong 6th place finish at Toledo Bend. This performance not only demonstrates his consistency but also earned him an additional $3,000 from the Toyota Bonus Bucks program, highlighting his decision to drive a 2020 or newer Toyota tow vehicle as a strategic move in his professional fishing career.

Palmer’s transition to a 2023 Tundra was motivated by Toyota’s reputation for reliability, longevity, and value, alongside the attractive Toyota Bonus Bucks program. His positive experience with the Tundra, from its towing capabilities to its ease of maneuverability, underscores the practical benefits that come with choosing a vehicle tailored to the needs of professional anglers.

Throughout the tournament, Palmer employed a 4-inch YUM FF Sonar Minnow on a ¼-ounce jig head and a spinning rod, a technique that proved effective in catching over 86 lbs of Toledo Bend largemouth bass. His use of forward-facing sonar technology to locate and target individual fish, including a notable bass over nine pounds, showcases the advanced strategies top anglers employ to achieve success in competitive fishing.

The Toyota Bonus Bucks program extends beyond professional anglers like Palmer, offering additional earning opportunities to bass, walleye, and kayak fishing enthusiasts across a wide range of tournaments. This inclusivity and the program’s accessibility—being free to register—make it an appealing option for anglers at all levels seeking to maximize their competitive fishing earnings.
