Nevertheless, he'll have a keen interest in all three divisions of the Bassmaster Opens.

His son, Alton Jr., plans to fish all nine Open events in a quest to qualify for the Elites. If he succeeds, the Joneses would become the second father-son duo to compete on B.A.S.S.' top circuit, joining Denny and Chad Brauer (2006).

"Little Alton," as he's been known since he started traveling the circuit with his family as a small boy, is fresh out of Baylor University with a degree in marketing.
