As we’ve previously noted on the Bass Fishing Archives, Florida pro Larry Lazoen was one of the many one-time winners in Bassmaster tournament history, a fate that is of course far better than never winning at all, but still leaves most competitive anglers feeling that they “coulda been a contender” more frequently.

Perhaps not surprisingly, his one victory came in the 1994 Maryland Bassmaster Invitational on the Potomac River, where grass fishing ruled the day.

Congratulations to Rob Shaw for winning this week’s Monday Trivia Contest! For the answer, please read below.

Missouri’s Table Rock Lake has been a stopping point for the major tours for decades, with the most recent stop producing Mike McClelland’s seventh B.A.S.S. victory, fourth Elite Series win, and his first since 2008. He compiled 61 pounds 15 ounces of Table Rock bass over four days (nearly a 15 pound 8 ounce average) to claim the crown.

Just under 17 years ago, New Englander Lee Bailey won the Bassmaster Missouri Central Invitational on the Rock, putting together three limits of bass that totaled 47-15, an average just a hair under 16 pounds a day. It marked the sole win of Bailey’s 122 event B.A.S.S. career. He came in 3rd on three occasions, coming closest to winning again in 1999 on the Hudson River when he finished behind winner Woo Daves by a little bit less than 3 pounds. [Read more…]
