We recently sat down with the 2015 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Classic Bracket winner Trevor Lo to dig a little deeper with the University of Minnesota angler. He will be representing the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series in the upcoming 2016 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake in Oklahoma.
Unlike previous College Classic Bracket standouts, this was Lo’s first year fishing the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series. What Lo may have lacked in experience, he made up for in determination as he outlasted the best in one of the toughest events in Carhartt Bassmaster College Series history.
Question: Where are you from originally?
Trevor Lo: St. Paul, Minnesota.
Q: When and how did you first get into fishing?
Lo: I grew up fishing for panfish and anything else that would bite with my Dad. I got into bass fishing when I was about 8 or 9 years old. Then I started fishing local tournaments in my early teens, which led to college fishing.
Q: When did you start fishing for University of Minnesota?
Lo: Believe it or not, this is my first year competing in college fishing.
Q: Who was your bass angling hero growing up?
Lo: Growing up I would have to say that Mike Iaconelli was my hero; he just made fishing so exciting.
Q: Who would you like to spend a day on the water with?
Lo: I would love to go fishing with “the G-Man” Gerald Swindle. I know there wouldn’t be any shortage of laughs!
