At the recent Bassmaster Elite Series event on Lake Fork, Chris Zaldain’s penchant for launching 8- to 10-inch glide baits and swimbaits led to 93 pounds of largemouth, a fifth-place finish and a $3,000 bonus from the Toyota Bonus Bucks contingency program. 

“I love Lake Fork because there are so many fish over 5-pounds that I can fish the way I love to fish most. I felt like I was truly fishing to win with every cast.” says Zaldain. “And while I fell a few places short, it’s always a good feeling when you find out you won the Toyota Bonus Bucks even though you didn’t win the tournament.” 

Asked what he loves most about his Toyota Tundra, Zaldain quickly stated, “Pure reliability. I never have to worry about my Tundra getting me to the boat ramp when I turn the key every day at 4:30 in the morning, not to mention the long drives from Fort Worth to Florida, up to New York, and back home again.”

Much like Zaldain, you too can cash-in on Toyota Bonus Bucks without winning your tournament. You just have to own or lease a 2017 or newer Toyota Truck, sign up free for Bonus Bucks, and be the highest finishing registered participant in one of the hundreds of tournaments supported by the Program.
