Clanton, AL

MLF Dustin Connell Profile Alabama angler Dustin Connell put an exclamation point on the start of the 2021 season when he claimed the REDCREST 2021 title at Lake Eufaula. Connell was hot out of the gate in his pro career, claiming Elite Series Rookie of the Year honors in 2017. Winning Stage Three of the 2022 Bass Pro Tour pushed him to nearly $1 million in career earnings. He followed it up with a win at Stage Six of the 2022 Bass Pro Tour. This win made Connell one of the winningest anglers in Bass Pro Tour history as only Jacob Wheeler and Ott DeFoe had won three or more events on the Bass Pro Tour. He capped off the 2022 season with his fourth Bass Pro Tour win at Stage Seven at Mille Lacs Lake. Then in 2024, Connell scored his fifth Bass Pro Tour win at Stage One on Toledo Bend.
