Round 1: NEW BLOOD!

Text alignment
Round 1 and the top 10 feature a lot of new names. It’s exciting to see new faces challenging for the top spots! There are a few familiar anglers in there though with lottoeloopoo, XEagles88Fanx, LoneRanger469, stumain, and the ever-present swifty86ttv! But the top spot in Round 1 goes to Juan Da Don4041 with an impressive 53lb 6oz limit with lottieloopoo a meager 1oz behind!

Round 2: Top 10 Shake Down!

Text alignment
Fast-forward to Round 2 though, and the leader board is looking very different, we’ve lost names and we have more new pros claiming the elusive top 10 spots! Juan Da Don4041 has dropped from 1st to 10th and clearly struggled a little to repeat the impressive bag from Round 1.
In Round 2 xUx Enno claims the top spot with an impressive 53lb 6oz bolstering a very respectable Round 1 score and BBmatia91 claims the Monster Bag of the event with a HUGE 54lb 3oz limit launching them from outside the top 10, into 2nd place. It was all to play for in Round 3.

Winners Interview

We spoke to BBmattia91 after his win to ask a few questions!
Benjamin – Congratulations on your St. Lawrence River Online Elite Series win, BBmatia91. What does the win mean to you?
BBmattia91 – I’m simply happy! I’m very passionate about bass fishing and I love how Bassmaster Fishing 2022 has captured the spirit of competitive bass fishing with these online tournaments.
Benjamin – Fishing on the St. Lawrence River seems like it was a little more challenging than some of our previous tournaments, how do you prepare for these events?
BBmattia91 – Yes, compared to the previous event at Toledo Bend this was a more challenging tournament to compete in. At Toledo, I was able to focus my time on fishing around 1 location but at St. Lawrence, depending on the water temperatures I needed to rotate between 4 or so locations to find the fish I needed.
Benjamin – What was your go-to load-out during the St. Lawrence River Online Elite Series?
BBmattia91 – I love the soft plastic 7inch Tremor Shad and I use that most of the time with the Fitzgerald Spinning rod with 50lb braided line. I caught my biggest bass of the event using the Jenkolistic Swimbait though!
Benjamin – Finally, what advice would you give to players who have their sights set on winning one of our online tournaments?
BBmattia91 – My advice is to just practice, the water temperatures are also so important to your success so make sure you have hotspots marked on your GPS that you know might be successful for you at varying water temperatures. I also watch a lot of community videos and live streams to learn from other players.
