Sure, it’s still early in the 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series campaign, but Josh Bertrand is off on the right foot and not currently in need of digging out of any holes. After the first two events of the season, the Pure Fishing pro sits in the number 3 spot of the Angler of the Year (AOY) race. Stay in the Top 35 or so, and you claim a coveted berth into the Bassmaster Classic. Of course it’s early, but the AOY title itself is there to win as well.
So, what does a seasoned pro do during his time off before the next Elite Series event? Why, he answers Three Questions from BassFIRST, that’s what he does.
DL – What country would you like to visit for a fishing trip that you’ve never been to before?
JB – I’d love to go to Brazil and fish the Amazon River for peacock bass. I’ve never caught one before, but they look awesome. Plus, I’ve never been to that part of the world either.
I’d like to take one of those houseboat trips where they tow the bass boats with them. I know people go out in kayaks, but I feel like I’d hurt myself trying to land one.
Those fish seem like they would really be fun to catch and test my equipment with, a true test of the gear I use.
