Ladson, SC – (March 27, 2023) – A week before conquering the 2023 Bassmaster Classic, Z-Man pro Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson paused a moment to reflect, perhaps clairvoyantly. “Last time we were here, something pretty special happened.”
Two years later. Same bass fishery. Identical ElaZtech® softbait. For Gussy, it was one more, even bigger trophy.
“This is my version of winning the Stanley Cup,” exclaimed the first Canadian born winner of the Bassmaster Classic, with a nod to his peeps back in Kenora, Ontario.
Employing a precision, vertical jigging maneuver known as moping—or as he calls it, hanging a minnow— Gussy enticed all twelve of his smallmouth bass with the same title-winning softbait. Hovering inches above the eyeballs of big bronzebacks, a Z-Man 4-inch Scented Jerk ShadZ exuded the right natural elements to entice tough-bite smallmouth bass— and the attitude to co-sign Gussy’s $300k paycheck.
