“It is only fitting that our first Western Bass Shootout is anchored in Sacramento. We plan to produce record-breaking fan attendance and look forward to bringing a family friendly environment to the region. WBS is designed to be the Super Bowl of Professional Bass Fishing in our entire region. It is not just a great competition; it is a true celebration of the competitors, the fans, and the sport as a whole.”

Randy Pringle

“I’ve been fishing this Delta for over 50 years you could not ask for a better playing field for this group of Anglers, from drop shot spinner bait to punching Topwater, It has it all. The California Delta will bring nothing but excitement for this outstanding event.”

Rick Pierce

“We are pleased to see this mission come together. Offering western anglers a true championship has been the goal, gathering all the major higher entry and higher participation organizations. We welcome those high-profile fishing companies and enthusiasts to embrace this. All together, we can continue the growth of fishing on the west coast.”

Billy Egan

“WON BASS is very proud of our top 10 Pro anglers of the year and is excited to see how they stand up against the other Pros that have also qualified through other platforms. It is awesome to see this type of format come to fruition again. We wish all the anglers and sponsors luck in the coming months.”
