Young Guns From College Bass-Fishing Ranks Storm Onto Bassmaster Elite Tour

Bass fishing is one of the fastest-growing high school and collegiate club sports in the country. Recent high-profile wins by young anglers who got their start in college are making the world take notice. In the past month, Lowrance Pro Jordan Lee, a 25-year-old professional angler from Guntersville, Ala., won the 2017 Bassmaster Classic Championship on Lake Conroe in Houston, Texas. A few weeks later, Lowrance Pro Dustin Connell won the Bassmaster Elite tournament held at Mississippi’s Ross Barnett reservoir. The 26-year-old professional angler from Clanton, Ala., is the first College Series angler to win an Elite tournament. Connell’s winning four-day total catch of 64 pounds, 13 ounces moved him up to the top of the Rookie of the Year standings.
