Bass fishing ace Rick Clunn got his start in the tournament fishing world on Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend, and with his latest victory, has won 15 B.A.S.S. tournaments. At the age of 69, he’s the oldest to win a B.A.S.S. tourney. He began fishing bass tournaments in East Texas back in the early 70s and won his first B.A.S.S. tourney in 1976. It was his first giant step toward becoming a true legend in the sport of professional fishing.
Clunn, who will turn 70 in July, caught five bass that weighed 19 pounds during last Sunday’s championship round and won the Bassmaster Elite on the St. Johns River. The win was accomplished with a monumental catch of 31.7 pounds during Saturday’s semifinal round.
