Lowrance pro Casey Ashley won the 2015 Bassmaster Classic championship in February on Lake Hartwell, S.C., boating a five-fish limit on each day of the three-day event, for a total weight of 50.1 pounds, to win the $300,000 top prize.

Ashley was nearly four pounds ahead of the second-place finisher.

Seven of the top 10 finishers were Lowrance Pro Team anglers and 16 of the top 25 used Lowrance fishfinder/chart plotters, the company said.

It was the fourth consecutive year in which a Lowrance angler won the Bassmaster Classic.

“I caught them all deep,” Ashley said in a statement. “And I completely relied on my Lowrance electronics to make it happen. I could literally watch the fish come out of the ditches and onto the flat areas. The fish were holding right on the bottom, but as soon as I started to see fish move off the bottom, I would start getting bites. The key was marking fish that were slowly moving off the bottom as I passed over, then making a cast right back into those areas.”
