LOWRANCE DOES IT AGAIN SIX TIMES A WINNER! F or six years in a row the Bassmaster Classic (USA) champions have trusted Lowrance electronics to lead them to victory! And it’s happened again – this time on Houston’s Lake Conroe! The latest winner is 25-year-old Jordan Lee from Alabama – who took on 52 anglers (including seasoned veterans like Mike Iaconelli) and emerged victorious! Jordan was placed 37th after the first day of the competition, having only caught three bass weighing in at 8lbs 6oz (3.909kg). Saturday yielded nothing until after 12 noon but then it was game on - his catch of four giant Largemouth Bass totalling 21lbs (9.545kg) moved him up to 15th spot. In the end, Sunday proved to be Jordan’s day. Using his three Lowrance HDS-12 Gen 3 units, crankbaits and jig/craw lures and fishing the ledges - his massive five-bass catch of 27lbs 4oz (12.454kg), cemented his victory with a total of 56lbs 10oz (25.5kg) and guaranteed his $300 000 prize! He’ll defend his title at the 2018 Classic on Lake Hartwell near Greenville in South Carolina. Well done Jordan Lee and here’s to Lowrance! lowrance south africa 21 05
