Bob Downey, in his first season fishing the B.A.S.S. Opens, rode a consistent but demanding pattern to his first career victory in the Basspro.com Bassmaster Central Open on Grand Lake.
With a final-day catch of 16 pounds, 3 ounces and a three-day total of 48-9, the Wisconsin angler earned $29,200 and a berth in the 2020 Bassmaster Classic scheduled for March 6-8 on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville.
By finishing fifth in the season points standings for the Central Open, Downey also earned an invitation to fish the 2020 Bassmaster Elite Series.
“Holy smokes, I got it done,” said Downey, who was fishing Grand for the first time. “I can’t believe it.”
Downey climbed steadily through the standings the first two days and was in second place going in Saturday’s finale.
With this catch of 16-3 Saturday, he finished just 8 ounces in front of another Wisconsin angler, Caleb Kuphall of Mukwonago, with 48-1. Kuphall’s finish also put him in the Top 5 of the season points race and earned him an invitation to the Elite Series.
Kyle Dorsett of Odenville, Ala., grabbed third place at Grand with 45-12.
Another chance for a first career win slipped away from the leader of the first two days, Kenta Kimura of Osaka, Japan.
A year ago the seven-season veteran led the pack on the Red River, fell off on the last day and placed fourth. History repeated for him Saturday as he boated three bass in the morning and could not find another keeper. With 43-4, he finished fourth.
Persistence, faith in his pattern, and some last-minute fortune got it done for Downey.
“When I got on that pattern early this week (in practice) and got that 6-pounder, I knew it was potentially a special deal,” he said. “But I didn’t know if it would hold up.”

Pradco Aquires Gene Lerew Lures

PRADCO Outdoor Brands, a world leader in top-name fishing and hunting products, announced today that it has acquired Gene Larew Lures, a Tulsa, Okla., company that manufactures and sells fishing lures under its Gene Larew, Bobby Garland and Crappie Pro brands.

"Today, we've added two more legendary names - Larew and Garland - to our  already historic lineup of fishing brands," said PRADCO's Bruce Stanton, Vice President and General Manager of the fishing division. "In addition to growing our bass offerings with Larew and jumping right to the top of the crappie bait category with Garland, we're also getting a wealth of manufacturing experience, industry knowledge and fishing expertise that fully complement the things we do that put us at the top in this industry. We're excited!"   
 
"Only a couple hours up the road from Ft. Smith (Arkansas), we know PRADCO, Bruce and many of his team, so I'm elated to be passing along my company to them because I know it'll be in great hands," said Gene Larew Lures owner, Chris Lindenberg. "They have proven themselves to be a great caretaker of the brands that I grew up fishing with, and I wanted Larew and Garland to have a permanent next home in such a prominent place. I couldn't be any happier than having PRADCO be the ones to take our efforts to the next level and beyond."

SpiderWire Launches New UltraCast and Stealth Smooth Lines


SpiderWire® launches new colors for its UltraCast® and Stealth®Smooth line collections. The SpiderWire® UltraCast®, Stealth® Smooth 12, and Stealth® Smooth 8 lines are an evolution in line technology, allowing for a sensitive yet powerful feel.

The SpiderWire UltraCast 
line is crafted from eight tightly woven 100 percent PE fibers, giving UltraCast the unique capacity to launch great distances with very little effort—all while retaining a high level of strength and abrasion resistance. UltraCast is now available in two new colors – Aqua Camo and Inshore Camo. The new colors will be available in the following sizes: 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 30-, 40-, 50-, 65-, 80- and 100-pound. Available in July 2019, the new line colors will offer lengths of 150 meters ($18.99), 300 meters ($36.99) and 2000 meters ($249.99).



New this year, Stealth Smooth braid will be available in a 12-carrier option. The new Stealth Smooth 12 is woven from 12 PE fibers to create a tight, round braid that is strong and sensitive. Offering an incredibly soft feel without sacrificing strength, sensitivity or diameter, the braid is thin and smooth, rendering it almost completely silent through the guides. The new line will be available in Hi-Vis Yellow, Moss Green and Translucent. Coming in Spring 2020, the Stealth® Smooth 12 braid will be available in multiple sizes (4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 30-, 40-, 50-, 65-, 80-pound) and a 150-meter length for $24.99.

The SpiderWire Stealth Smooth collection receives additional updates with added colors to the Stealth Smooth 8 braid. Hi-Vis Yellow joins Moss Green as colors options for the Stealth® Smooth 8 line. The new color will be available in October 2019 in multiple sizes (4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 30-, 40-, 50-, 65-, 80-pound) and will be available in lengths of 150-meters ($12.99), 300-meters ($24.99) and 2000-meters ($164.99).

“The new additions to the SpiderWire family demonstrate the continued evolution of our line production technology,” said Chris Pitsilos, brand manager for SpiderWire. “The Stealth Smooth 8 and 12 braid will give anglers an immensely strong cast without even breaking a sweat. And the UltraCast is the pinnacle of performance line strength. Casting long distances has never felt so effortless.”
