BASSMASTER ELITE UPDATE: Jacob Powroznik
For QCrew member Jacob Powroznik, it all comes down to three days of smallmouth fishing.
As he headed out this morning for Day 1 of the 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship on Mille Lacs Lake, Minnesota, Proz sat in 43rd place in AOY points with 555. The estimated cutoff to qualify for the 2018 Bassmaster Classic is currently 38th place, so Powroznik has 18 points to make up to squeeze into the Classic.
HOWEVER: there’s also the Classic Bracket next week at Lake Pokegama, where the eight anglers who fall outside the Classic cut will compete in a head-to-head/bracket format for the last remaining spot.
Either way, Proz is ready to take care of business: “All you ever want is a chance, and I’m here right now with a chance to catch the fish I need to make the Classic,” he said this morning before takeoff.
