RACINE, Wis. (July 28, 2021) –– The Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year title is headed to New Market, Minnesota, the home of Humminbird® and Minn Kota® Pro Seth Feider. One of the few anglers not from the South to win the Angler of the Year award, Feider’s win marks the first for an angler from the fishing-crazed state of Minnesota.
Leading the Angler of the Year race going into the final event of the 2021 Bassmaster Elite Series season, Feider knew what was at stake.
“I am usually fairly calm during a tournament, but I was definitely pretty stressed each day until I was able to get a limit in the boat,” Feider said. “Once my fifth fish was in the boat, I was able to slow down and fish free.”
Feider completed his season at the St. Lawrence River in 13th place with a final weight of 58 pounds, 15 ounces. Nearly breaking the points margin-of-victory record, Feider dominated the Angler of the Year standings, beating second place by 61 points.
