Our Bass Fishing Archives readers have demonstrated that they are remarkably adept at figuring out my little puzzles. Accordingly, this week we’re going to try something a little bit different – instead of asking you to answer one question, you’ll have to describe two different notable aspects of the subject tournament. Herewith, our first two-parter:
By the time the 1989 season rolled around, Guido Hibdon had won three B.A.S.S. events. The first two, in 1980 and 1981, were on his home waters of Lake of the Ozarks. The third was the 1988 Bassmaster Classic on Virginia’s James River. Apparently that triggered a tidal river awakening for Hibdon, because he went on to win the Maryland Top 100 in 1989 on the Potomac River.
Hibdon’s win on the Potomac is significant in my mind for two reasons. The first is the tournament strategy and weather conditions that enabled him to win. For the second, you’ll have to look at the co-angler standings.
The answer and winner will be announced Thursday. Remember, please give a good explanation of what happened in order to be considered.
