MONROE-WEST MONROE, La. – The Bass Pro Tour season opener isn’t over yet, but it’s safe to say that two MLF pros are starting the year off the right way. Mark Daniels Jr. and Jared Lintner won the Qualifying Round for Groups A and B, respectively, and because of that, they each earned a ticket to the Championship Round of the B&W Trailer Hitches Stage One Presented by Power-Pole.

Both Daniels and Lintner found success on Lake D’Arbonne while much of the field struggled to land scorable bass. Listen to what they did that set them apart from other pros, and how they’re preparing for Thursday’s Championship Round on Bussey Brake.
