Lowrance pro angler Jordan Lee won the 2017 Bassmaster Classic championship last weekend on Lake Conroe in Houston.

A 25-year-old professional angler from Guntersville, Ala., Lee became the sixth consecutive Lowrance angler to win the event when he finished with a three-day total of 56 pounds, 10 ounces, taking home $300,000.

Steve Kennedy, who also competed in the event with Lowrance marine electronics, finished second with a total weight of 55 pounds, 1 ounce.

“All of us at Lowrance congratulate Jordan on his amazing performance and well- deserved win,” Navico CEO Leif Ottosson said in a statement. “We are proud to know that Lowrance has continued to play a key role in winning the last six Bassmaster Classics, and that Lowrance is still the No. 1 brand of marine electronics at the Bassmaster Classic and Bassmaster Elite tour. For 60 years the key to success has been driven by Lowrance sonar innovation and our commitment to deliver meaningful benefits for anglers.”

The 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series continues April 6-9. Anglers will compete on Toledo Bend Reservoir near Many, La.
