Strike Pro Fishing Lures were used by anglers Andrew Upshaw and Ryan Watkins when they won the 2011 College Bass National Championship in Arkansas, also known as the "Super Bowl of bass fishing." Here's a bit about their win:
College fishing has just finished crowning its first winner that will be representing the collegiate trail at the next level. Not only is it the next level, it is what many call the “Super Bowl of bass fishing” which, of course, is the Bassmaster Classic. Qualifying for the classic is a monumental feat and it is what many of the professionals set as their goal throughout the season. The collegiate angler that will be representing the entire college fishing trails at the classic is Andrew Upshaw from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Many reading this may feel that Andrew could not possibly be prepared for such a spotlight, but he is not new to this and I fully expect to see him do well.
Specific to Strike Pro Fishing Lures, Andrew Upshaw explains the role of the fishing lures:
“The wake bait made the difference” Upshaw explained when asked how they caught them. "It is made by Strike Pro and it is just a great search tool for early morning fishing.”
