February 1, 2011; Wolfy of Flowing Waters (a.k.a. Joe from one of the best sites in the world) held a contest to try and find the best Bass angler in the world. The winner of this contest would obtain a cache of premium Bass fishing tackle, which would help ensure that this flawless fisherman would remain the best Bass angler in the world for a very long time. The contest was also to celebrate over 100 blog followers but for now let’s just pretend… I mean focus on the fact that it was to determine the best Bass fisherman in the world….
Here is the run down:
Strike King Pro Buzz buzzbait, Strike King Bitsy titanium Elite Spinnerbait, Blue Fox Vibrax #3 spinner, Harrison – Hogue Big Eyed Pro Frog, Rapala Rattling Suspending Shad Rap #5, Rapala CD 7, Rapala Deep Running Minnow Rap 9, Lucky Craft Staysee 90 SP, Eagle Claw Trokar EWG hooks – 4/0, Yamamoto SW 5″ Swimbait, Yamamoto 4″ Senko, Kalin 5″ Lunker Grub, Strike King 4.5″ Bleeding Tubes
As you can see this is a serious gang of bass lures. Rapala, Strike King, Yamamoto, lots of big names and big boy baits. This collection is so sweet I think it would even make Billy Bass cry!
So who got the gear?
Maybe it was a stroke of luck, perhaps a prediction of greatness to come (or a fluke of the random number generator) but one great fisherman was selected from the hoards of contestants. This fisherman, destined to become the greatest Bass fisherman in the world goes by one name and one name only… Matt. Yes you read that right! The Functioning Fishaholics 17′ aluminum Ouachita canoe is now proudly sponsored by Wolfy and the Flowing Waters blog. Look out KVD, The Functioning Fishaholics are slowly paddling their way to the top!
It must have been hard to part with all of this great gear! Thank you for such a generous contest and rest assured Wolfy, this gear has found a very good home. I will divvy up this fine haul of loot amongst my Functioning Fishaholic brothers and we shall do our best to “feed” the local Largemouth population!
