Chapman Wins at Toledo Bend
TRITON PRO CHAPMAN WINS FIRST BASS ELITE SERIES EVENT
Triton 21HP Carries Chapman to Winnerâ€™s Circle on Toledo Bend
MURFREESBORO, TN. (June 11, 2012) â€“ Triton pro Brent Chapman earned his first BASS Elite Series tournament victory this past weekend. The Lake Quivira, Kan., native weighed in over 83-pounds of fish during the four-day event at Toledo Bend. The Triton pro cashed a $100,000 check for his winning effort. Chapman ran a Triton 21HP and with the victory claimed the top spot in the Angler of the Year race.
â€œI put my Triton through the ultimate test â€“ professional bass fishing,â€ said Chapman. â€œIt never fails me when I need it most, and this tournament was huge for me and my family. Iâ€™ve been at this gig for quite some time so winning one of these tournaments is a big deal.â€
Chapman looks forward to competing more in the future as he wrapped up a Bassmaster Classic birth with the win. Chapman continued, â€œTo make the Classic was a key goal for me this year. Iâ€™ve had some great tournaments this year, and I look forward to the Classic on Grand Lake this year.â€
The Bassmaster Elite Series will travel next to LaCrosse, Wis., for the June 21-24 Mississippi River Rumble.
