The Bass Pro Shops Central Open on the Arkansas River kicks off tomorrow, and Australian angler and STORMR team member Carl Jocumsen is doing everything he can to punch his ticket to the Bassmaster Elite Series. If he manages to do so, Carl will be the first Australian angler to ever qualify for the Elite series and ensure he will be fishing against some of the best anglers in the world in 2015.
Carl finds himself sitting in 4th place in the standings going into this final Central series Open. With the top five anglers moving onto the Elites next season, he could be just a few good bags away from realizing the dream that brought him to the US a few years back. We are excited to have Carl aboard, and are looking forward to following along over the next few days.
While you wait for the weigh-in, check out a video he put together showing his time on the road and Lake Champlain during the Northern Open event there last month.

We’re sure we aren’t the only ones jealous of STORMR team member Hank Cherry’s office view on Toledo Bend. Hank’s fishing in the Evan Williams Bourbon Bassmaster Elite at Toledo Bend and word is he’s had early success flippin’ docks, one of his biggest strengths.
This is what he had to say to Ronnie Moore from BASS: “I pulled up on my best spot and didn’t get bit,” said Cherry. “Then we moved to my next place and caught a limit on nine casts.”

Team STORMR member Greg Hackney finished 3rd this past weekend at the Bassmaster Elite Series Tournament at Table Rock Lake in Branson, MO. He weighed 60.15lbs over the four day event. When the weather calls for it, Hackney has been wearing our STRYKR series rain gear for the past two years.
Here is Greg’s initial reaction after using the gear for the first time at the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, which was one of the coldest Classics on record:
