The Bassmater Elite Series came to Green Bay last week and the youngest ever winner came out victorious. At the age of 23-years and 10-months, Jonathon VanDam registed 79-pounds 2-ounces of Small Mouth Bass to take home the win worth $103,000.
VanDam, from Kalamazoo, MI, also earned a spot in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic. He finished 2-pounds, 6-ounces ahead of Brandon Palaniuk for the title. According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, Green Bay is hoping to lure a return trip by the tour as early as 2014.
The event will air on ESPN and the Outdoor Channel later this month.
