LARRY NIXON ON BASSING
How To Be A Professional Bass Fisherman And Get Sponsors
EDITOR'S NOTE: Fifty-one-year-old Larry Nixon of Bee Branch, Arkansas has fish professionally since 1976, won 14 B.A.S.S. tournaments and two Angler-of-the-Year titles. He was also the first professional angler to earn more than $1 million in B.A.S.S. winnings.
QUESTION: Larry, what must an angler do to be a professional
bass fisherman? If you could give a course on professional bass fishing,
what would you tell an angler he needed to do?
After you've passed that step, Larry, the No. 1 question that most tournament
fishermen ask is how do you get sponsors?
