Congratulations to Adam Hinkle for winning this week’s trivia contest sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits. This make three for Adam in the short period of about 5 weeks. For the answers, please read below.

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.
