Hurley Board – perhaps the name rings a bell – NOT! Which is kind of interesting considering he fished 70 B.A.S.S. events and weighed in over 1,000 pounds of bass during his career. His lone win came in the 1978 Virginia Invitational on Lake Gaston, where he pocketed $14,000. He attributed that win to, “10,000 casts, three packs of cigarettes and a Pepsi,” but you’ll have to know a bit more than that to win this week’s contest, sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits.
Be the first to correctly answer the following questions, and the certificate is yours.
- Hurley wasn’t a full-time touring professional. What was his actual occupation?
- What lure did he use to win the event?
- Previous to this win, his highest finish was 2nd place, an Invitational on Santee-Cooper in which he lead after 2 days. What well known professional passed him on the final day to snatch victory from him?
- What style of fishing was Hurley’s specialty?
Answers to these questions and a winner will be announced on Thursday. Good Luck!
