Since 2017, All Star Bass Fishing has put Pacific NW anglers to the test with the head to head series, Bass Battles. Over the years we’ve been blessed to watch anglers take their shot at a title and know the hard work put in to get there.
2017 and 2018 Seasons started out with Jeremy McKay claiming the Bass Battles Oregon Coast title back to back as he also continued his success posting great finishes in FLW and Wild West events.
2018 expansion added a very deserving Jeff Reid as the Oregon River Champion, with Joel Berrukoff and Whitney KaDell taking their respective Mens and Ladies Non-Boater Titles.
2019, the Oregon Coast Series continued to get tougher and tougher but Ron Six managed to claim his first title. (We know he will be back to defend) The 2019 Oregon River Series almost had another repeat champion but Lane Olson “Edged” out Jeff Reid before taking his jump to the FLW Tour.
2020 started out with some big adjustments but overall allowed for expansion to continue into Washington and put the new formed Challenge Series to the test. Regional Champions were named and sets the stage for a 2021 All Star Team and an exciting 2021 Bass Battles Season. Regional Champion Mike Magnotti in Washington NW actually put his Spring prize money up to sponsor several club anglers for the Summer Challenge Series. Jonas Pettit claimed the top spot as Washington continued to spark new interest and pave the way for a new format. Chris Jones took the remaining Washington regional title in South Central. Oregon Regions saw Clint Messner finally get his Oregon Coast title after chasing several years of finishes just out of the top spot. Tyler Nale grabbed the late season Coastal title and prove his place among top coastal anglers. Oregon NW found Sack Lunch Fishing’s Jim Vandevort among the contenders and claimed a regional Spring title while Jeremy McKay showed his versatility by taking the Summer NW title. The Columbia River put another name on the Champions list with Austin Bentz posting big numbers and showing why he belongs on the All Star team. To round out the champions, Kevin Pangle showed us what Central Oregon holds and how much he enjoys the head to head format.
Some great names in the early years of Bass Battles and even more to come. Do you have what it takes to get on this list? Join us in 2021 and see if you have what it takes to be an All Star.
