Edwin Evers wins the 2016 GEICO® Bassmaster Classic®
NITRO® and Bass Pro Shops® Elite Team pro Edwin Evers, fishing in an all-new NITRO Z19, captured his first win this weekend at the 2016 GEICO® Bassmaster Classic® competition in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Evers, a 13-time Classic qualifier and Oklahoma native, earned the title with a 29-pound, 3-ounce grab on the final day of the tournament. His three-day total was 60 pounds, 7 ounces. The win further solidifies Evers as among the best in the elite series and fulfills a lifelong personal dream to win the iconic bass angler tournament.
"All of us at Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Marine Group are extremely proud of Edwin," said Johnny Morris, Bass Pro Shops founder and a former Bassmaster Classic competitor. "Having partnered together for the past 20 years since his days as a NITRO State Team Pro, we have an extremely high regard for Edwin and his family and can't think of a more deserving young man."
Evers fished the Classic on a NITRO Z19, an all-new 200 horsepower-class performance bass fishing boat capable of speeds approaching 70 miles per hour that made its debut at the competition.
