Monday Trivia – Nixon up North Answer and Winner (June 8, 2015)

Nixon 1999 from fishingwithnixondotcom

Well, unfortunately no one won this week’s trivia contest sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits. For the answers, please read below. Come back next week for another shot.

From the start of his Bassmaster career in 1977 through his victory in the 1992 Bassmaster 25th Anniversary tournament on Beaver Lake, Larry Nixon won 13 tournaments, an average of nearly one a year. Included among that group of victories was his 1983 Classic win on the Ohio River and of course four Megabucks trophies. After that, however, he hit a dry spell.

Given Nixon’s incredibly high level of consistency over his career, there were of course some near misses:

  • He finished 2nd to Tommy Biffle at the 1993 Megabucks event on Lake Murray;
  • He finished 2nd to Davy Hite by 13 ounces at the 1996 Top 100 on Neely Henry; and
  • He finished 3rd at the 1999 Classic on the Louisiana Delta, trailing only Hite and the prior year’s champion, Denny Brauer.

Congratulations to Chris for winning this week’s trivia contest sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits! For the answer, read below.

Art Ferguson’s victory at the 2000 Alabama Bassmaster Top 150 was the sole tour-level victory of his career to date. He’s won at the AAA level since then, but never again on either the FLW Tour or the Elite Series (or its equivalent).

The May 2000 event on Wheeler was of course significant for Ferguson, but it was less significant for another highly-accomplished angler – simply because the angler in question didn’t really need to show up. [Read more…]
