Alton Jones Jr. captures Bassmaster Classic berth

JR - Winning Classic Berth

Had Saturday’s Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open weigh-in been held on Father’s Day it might have been more special but what did happen certainly fell into the ‘special’ category.

Alton Jones Jr. qualify for the 2017 Bassmaster Classic with his father, Alton Jones looking on. The 24-year-old Jones Jr. made it by posting the largest stringer of the 3-day tournament at 13 pounds, 14 ounces to win the prestigious Open in front of a large crowd at the Bossier City Bass Pro Shops.

Jones Jr. also qualified for the Bassmaster Elite Series and will fish alongside his father, a past Bassmaster Classic champ next season.

Former Bassmaster Classic champ Alton Jones recently finished the 2016 Elite Series season. He had a solid year finishing 15th overall in the Angler of the Year race and qualified for the prestigious Bassmaster Classic.

3rd: Jones Accomplished His Goals On The Mississippi River


> Day 4: 5, 14-15 (20, 61-14) Photo by: Seigo Saito - Jones made the long-distance run to Pool 9 for the fourth straight day and hammered the same spot he’d fished on days 1-3. He caught another 40 keepers, a mix of smallmouth and largemouth, off the rocky patch in the middle of the river and it carried him to his best finish of the season.

More importantly, he locked himself into the Bassmaster Classic, meaning he can approach next week’s AOY event with a more relaxed mindset.

“I accomplished all the goals I set for myself this week,” he said. “Number 1, I wanted to finish strong and have momentum to carry into next year and the Classic. Number 2 was to make the Classic and not have any pressure at the AOY. That’s a great luxury. The pressure’s off and I can go try to only find giants and try to win there.”

“I’m really happy for Ott,” he said. “Coming within a couple pounds of winning and not winning, it’s hard, but when you’re taking more risks going through locks and being in the situation I was in, I was really pleased with it.” Read more
