In nearly 200 B.A.S.S. tournaments spanning the period from 1974 to 2001, Jim Nolan of Arkansas finished in the Top 10 nine times and qualified for two Bassmaster Classics.
Through the 1980s, his best finish was a 4th in 1988 at the Texas Invitational on Sam Rayburn, a tournament won by Shaw Grigsby. In 1991, though, he got his revenge on Big Sam in the Texas Bassmaster Top 100, winning by a margin of nearly 14 pounds.
His victory at Rayburn was certainly memorable for Nolan, but it was also memorable for fans of the sport.
In order to win this week’s trivia challenge, you’ll need to answer the following four questions:
- What iconic fishing TV moment resulted from his win?
- What B.A.S.S. record did Nolan set at Rayburn?
- What other B.A.S.S. record was set that week?
- What was Nolan’s profession when he wasn’t fishing tournaments?
The answer and winner will be announced Thursday. Good Luck!
