WHO IS JACOB POWROZNIK?

Proz Bull Shoals
From a tiny pond in Prince George County, Virginia to the Bassmaster Classic stage. It’s been one heck of a journey for Jacob Powroznik.

Entering his fourth year on the Bassmaster Elite Series, J-Proz is the only Tour-level angler who has finished in the Top 6 in Angler of the Year standings the past five consecutive years (2012 & ’13 on the FLW Tour, 2014, ’15 & 16 on the Elite Series).

Pretty good for a kid who started out hitching rides from his mom to fish a small pond located on a hunting club that his dad belonged to.

“That pond didn’t even have a name, but it almost cost me my high-school diploma,” Powroznik jokes. “I fished that pond so many days I can’t even count. I might’ve missed a few days of school because of that pond, but it was what really got me going on bass fishing.”

From BFLs to the Classic stage
Powroznik started his pro career by catching two fish in a BFL tournament on Lake Seminole in 2000, and has since racked up 47 Top 10 finishes and nearly $1.5 million in career earnings. He finished fifth at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell, and entered that season as the No. 1 ranked angler in the world in Bassfan.com’s World Rankings.
