May 8, 2020 • Bass Pro Tour

Anyone who knows anything about professional bass fishing probably has Ott DeFoe penciled in as a favorite no matter where the 80 pros on the Bass Pro Tour are fishing. After a historic and wildly impressive Championship Round on Lake Athens, it’s easy to see why the Tennessee angler is one of the best in the business right now.

DeFoe began the third period of the Championship Round more than 19 pounds behind the leader, Mark Daniels Jr. The Rapala pro then went on a run of 18 bass for 57 pounds, 4 ounces with just an hour and 15 minutes remaining in the day.

That improbable run put DeFoe more than 28 pounds above the second-place angler, securing DeFoe’s first Bass Pro Tour championship trophy. Relive some of the best moments from DeFoe’s General Tire Stage Three Presented by TrueTimber on Lake Fork and Lake Athens.
