Congratulations Edwin Evers!


Congratulations to OPTIMA angler, Edwin Evers, on winning the 2011 Power-Pole Citrus Slam on the St. Johns River in Palatka, Florida, last weekend. This is the second Bassmaster Elite Series event of the season and a huge win for Edwin, as it automatically qualifies him for the 2012 Bassmaster Classic and moves him into 4th place in the Angler of the Year race.

The St. Johns event was a was a sight-fishing event, where Edwin spent long practice days running his trolling motor, looking for spawning bass. That meant he depended on his OPTIMA BlueTop batteries to provide enough power to help him find the best spots, including one that ended up netting him an 8-pound, 13-ounce whopper, pushing his four-day total just past 77 lbs!
