Bassmaster Elites came to Sacramento and the Stage was set for an exciting event on the Big Bass California Delta! Local Angler Justin Lucas takes home $100,000.00
Bassmaster Elites were in town this past weekend and launched out of Discovery Park on the Sacramento River. Most of the Elites made a run to the California Delta taking anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. If you didn’t know, this was a four day event with 112 anglers competing for $100,000. After day two they cut the field to the top 52 anglers, and on the last day only the top 12 are allowed to compete. Most of the pros were using sight and bed fishing techniques, as well as flipping, and throwing a frog and other top water baits. Top Angler of the weekend, and winner of the Bassmaster Elite tournament was Justin Lucas with 82.14lbs over the four day event. Other Notable Anglers were Aaron Martin, who came in second place with 80.7lbs. Third place went to Dean Rojas with 78.2lbs, Fourth to Ish Monroe with 72.9lbs and fifth place went to Chris Zaldain with 71.11lbs. Overall it was a great turnout at Discovery Park with people coming from all over to see these Elites. Can’t wait for them to come back!
