Sebile web prize(GAME OVER: see comments) Haven’t had a quiz for awhile, so I thought I’d put something fancy on the prize list: a Sebile Magic Swimmer 145 mm fast sinker.

This time around it’s strictly an all-California quiz, and all you have to do is fill in the blanks. (Of course, non-Californians are eligible to win.) But because everyone is busy over Thanksgiving, I’ll use a tiebreaker, rather than just the time signature of your comment. After that, if I think it’s too close to call, I’ll come up with a nice Sebile consolation prize as well.

Here we go:

A-First California pro angler to qualify for the Bassmasters Classic?
B-First Californian to qualify by points to the Bassmasters Classic?
C-First Californian to win the Bassmasters Classic?
D-First California Bass Federation angler to qualify for the Classic?
E-Which two (2) California anglers have logged the heaviest one-day catches (records) in Bassmasters tournament fishing?
F-First Californian to win U.S. Open and Bassmasters pro event?
G-First Californian to hold a lake record in California and also in Arizona?

Tie-breaker: Name a California outdoor writer/editor who covered the first Bassmasters Classic at Lake Mead.

TB Mr. Kramer

We are fairly close so far. E was a bad question on my part, so we’ll let you off on that one–bonus if you know the all-timer. After that, I hope it doesn’t get to the tie-breaker.

“E was a bad question on my part, so we’ll let you off on that one–bonus if you know the all-timer.”

Do you mean not Bassmaster? Not tournament? Art Berry had a 10 bass limit record in Mexico.

Bad question because only one Californian (not Dean who was in Arizona at the time) had a one-day Bassmaster’s tournament record. And the mark referred to is the all-time Bassmaster’s record.

Geez make it tough. I am trying to win a christmas present for my kid to keep him out of my fishing gear LOL
All time record belongs to Rojas. He may have a house in Havasu but he will always be a San Diegan. Actually AMart is wrong too. He lived in ‘Bama when he caught the second biggest stringer in Texas. The Fed angler question kills me. I can not find one. Is the answer to a bunch of these questions nobody? Did you cover that first Classic? That would be an interesting story to hear. How did they provide the boats? Must have been crazy for those Easterners to drop in on Mead.

Tie-Breaker: Kramer

Okay, I want everyone to win too. So lets eliminate question E altogether. But so you know, the answer is Rip Nunnery, Cerritos, all-time, one-day bass limit: 98 pounds, 15 ounces, Lake Eufaula, when the limit was 15 bass a day. The other questions are answerable (meaning there is some kind of answer). And one last hint. The first Bassmasters Classic I covered was 1981, Alabama River. Hmmmmmmm.

Tie-Breaker: Bill Rice

Nobody in California even held an Arizona bass record, come on now.

Gonna change “D” to Stanley Mitchell and tie breaker to Rolla Williams

One more change. “D” to Don Doty and “G” to Allan Cole

Anybody? Everybody? Have I got your final answers?

A. Dave Gliebe (1977)
B. Don Doty (1980 out of the back of the boat)
C. Skeet Reese (2009)
D. No one
E. eliminated
F. Steinstra

Crap… Missed a couple of questions.

A. Dave Gliebe (1977)
B. Don Doty (1980 out of the back of the boat)
C. Skeet Reese (2009)
D. No one
E. eliminated
F. Folkestad
G. Alan Cole
Extra – Steinstra

Here are the “correct” answers, and thanks to everyone for taking a shot.
A. Dee Thomas, based on a tour win, Bull Shoals, 1974
B. Dave Gliebe, 1977
C. Skeet Reese, just this year
D. If you answered “none” you are right, but if you answered Nick Wood, you are also right. None, because no angler from the “BASS Federation” ever qualified from California. But Wood, because this year he qualified from the BASS Federated Nation in California.
E. Question was eliminated.
F. Gary Klein, BASS 1979 AZ Invitational; 1987 US Open. (Folkestad won Open in ’85, but BASS Harris Chain in 1992)
G. Arizona acknowledges no Californian as holding any black bass record in Arizona or Colorado River.
TB: It was Bill Rice, editor of Western Outdoor News for 14 years.
If you get an email looking for your mailing address, you won something.

Leave it to gk to put a trick question or two in there. 🙂 Good brain teaser George. It got me thinking. So, does anyone know what ever happened to Doty?

Terry

Hey Krambo – Received the Sebile Magic Swimmer today. THANKS!

Hey Terry – Last time I saw Doty was at a WON BASS Pro-Am at DVL back in 2005. He didn’t have many friends around him.
