The angler pictured here was justifiably happy. It was his 12th birthday and he was at Lake Mead, Nevada. His father rented him a boat with a six-horsepower tiller outboard and he used a 6-inch Mann’s curly tailed worm (black with a chartreuse tail) to catch a six-pound largemouth. He couldn’t stop smiling.
This smiling, jean-shorted youth went on to be a smiling, non-jean-shorted tour-level pro.
In order to claim our weekly prize, you need to answer the following three questions:
- Who is this pro?
- What other sport did he excel at in his youth?
- What was his best Bassmaster Classic finish?
The answer and winner will be announced Thursday. Good Luck!
