CARPARTS.COM PRESENTS: How Ott DeFoe Turned His Childhood Bass-Fishing Dreams into Reality

April 8, 2022 • Bass Pro Tour

MLF pro Ott DeFoe’s career has been the stuff of dreams: he’s a multi-time Bass Pro Tour and MLF Cup winner, a Bassmaster Classic Champion and one of the most successful professional anglers in the world. But, it all had to start somewhere. For 9-year-old Ott, the dream started on a family trip to Lake Okeechobee, and continued through three decades of hard work to reach the top of the bass fishing world.

Join MLF and Carparts.com for an intimate behind-the-scenes look at DeFoe’s fishing life. You’ll learn how the Tennessee pro chased his dreams, and how doing a job because you love it is a key to success.
