Last week I attended the 2016 Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I grew up about 100 miles northeast of Tulsa in a small town in Kansas called Riverton.
Now this is where things got interesting.
Edwin Evers, another local pro, caught over 29 lbs to mount the largest come from behind win in Classic history. I am proud to say that I have become friends with Edwin over the years and he is a true Class Act and a well-deserved Champion. I fished with him on Okeechobee back in 2003 when I first started and he inspired me to stay in the sport and follow my dreams. He also helped me obtain my first sponsorship with Nitro Boats back in 2004.
Congrats Edwin on a phenomenal victory and enjoy the reign as Champion !
