Chad & Elliot Pilson Win 3rd Consecutive Bass Cast Championship on Smith Mountain Lake


By Danielle Englund
The BassCast 2021 tournament season came to a close on Saturday with 19 boats fishing for the Classic pot.

Irregular weather patterns, a warm front (it was nearly 70° at weigh-in), and a windy and rainy day made the fishing challenging for even our best anglers.

In the end, Chad and Elliot Pilson, who have placed in almost every BassCast tournament this season, took home the grand prize with a 22.58# bag. This marks the third consecutive year that the Pilson brothers have taken home the Championship win.

We are grateful to each of the 139 individuals who fished with us this year, and are looking forward to seeing you again in 2022! Click here for the 2022 BassCast Tournament Trail schedule.

– Angler’s Choice Marine
