Unfortunately no one got the answer to this week’s trivia contest. It’s a pretty difficult one (which is why we’re not going to keep it going) but I think when you see the picture to the left, it’ll make some sense. For the answer, read below.
The young angler pictured here is the latest in what seems like a long string of youthful towheaded anglers showing off species of fish other than bass. Rest assured this young master of panfish eventually turned into a top-notch tournament angler.
In order to win this week’s prize, you’ll need to answer the following four questions.
- Who is the pictured angler?
- What is unique about his time on tour?
- What was his best finish at the tour level?
- Where did he go to college?
Here’s the answer.
I wrote “once and future” because Dove is the first angler to leave the Elite Series for reasons other than a medical or family hardship and then requalify and sign up for the tour again. After a break of four years from tour level competition, he’ll rejoin the Elites in 2013.
The first two stops for the Elites this year will be on the Sabine River and Falcon Lake, both in his adopted state of Texas. Indeed, his personal Elite Series best 11th place finish on Amistad in 2008 may have convinced him to move there, but Dove was raised in Virginia, where he attended George Mason University. He remains an avid fan of the GMU Patriots basketball program
