Bass Cat Elite angler Seth Feider took first place last weekend at the 2016 Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship on Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota.

The native Minnesotan posted a three-day total of 76 pounds, 5 ounces, outweighing second place by more than 6 pounds.

“The ride of my Bass Cat was key to my win this past weekend,” Feider said in a statement. “I made long runs each day in really rough water, and the boat’s precise handling in big waves allowed me to run fast, make adjustments and stay on top of the fish.”

“I’ve fished my Bass Cat all year and haven’t lost a fish yet. That’s given me a huge advantage this season,” Feider added.

“This win shows Seth’s versatility as a professional angler in his ability to be successful in various conditions and will give him a great bump for the 2017 season,” Bass Cat president Rick Pierce said.

���We are proud to have him as a member of the Bass Cat Elite Series Team not only for his fishing skills, but also for his hard work to help Eddy Lyback be the premier Minnesota bass boat dealer.”
