Angling Hero

Rick Clunn - "He's been a mentor to me. He's the one who talked me into doing this full-time when I drew him in the U.S. Open in college."

Favorite Lake

Clear Lake (CA) - "Because I set the BASS record there and they eat swimbaits there, and I can catch 10-pounders there on swimbaits."

What’s Behind The Velvick Revival?

California Bassmaster Elite Series pro Byron Velvick is in the midst of a comeback. Until recently, his name wasn’t mentioned often unless the discussion turned to all-time weight records. He holds the BASS 3-day tournament record of 83-05 set at Clear Lake, Calif. in April of 2000.

But suddenly, Velvick’s in the spotlight and near the top of the leaderboard more often than not.

After six tournaments in the 11-event Bassmaster Elite Series season, he’s 35th in the¬†Elite Series points¬†and in position to qualify for his first-ever Bassmaster Classic.
