Ott DeFoe Goes All-In and Wins Third Bass Pro Tour Trophy

May 26, 2021 • Bass Pro Tour

After a rocky first day at the Favorite Fishing Stage Three Presented by Bass Cat Boats, Ott DeFoe was a dominant force on the Harris Chain during his second Qualifying Day and the Knockout Round. When it was time for DeFoe to compete in the Championship Round, he took the lead and ran away with it when it mattered the most: Period 3.

He kept things interesting by hopping in the lake to land a bass during the final hour of competition. DeFoe ended the Championship Round with a total of 73 pounds, 14 ounces, more than 25 pounds over second-place Bobby Lane.

This is DeFoe’s third Bass Pro Tour win, and fourth MLF win. In 2020, he won Stage Three on Lake Fork and Lake Palestine. He started 2021 with a Stage One win on Sam Rayburn before winning the 2021 Stage Three. DeFoe recently won the 2021 Heritage Cup in Waco, Texas, which is an event that was “shot in the dark” in October 2020 and edited for television.
