Congratulations the to 2019-2020 Angler Of The Year Johnny Abyad who plowed his way to the top of the leaderboard in short fashion. Johnny finished the 2020 CBC season with four first place wins with another two second place finishes out of eleven tournaments. In ten of eleven events Johnny finished in top ten just crushing the competition to earn his spot at the top of leaderboard. I had the chance to get some insight from Johnny looking back on the past season.
“First of all I would like to thank God for bringing me to the sport I have grown to love. I would also thank my amazing girlfriend for her understanding and allowing me to take so much time off and go fishing.
I started fishing about three and a half years ago just by chance, went to puddingstone caught my first bass and I was hooked. Then a friend of mine asked if I wanted to go to a bass club meeting and I told him sure that sounds interesting, that’s when I joined California Bass Contenders and started fishing on the back of everyone’s boats. About one year and half ago I decided that it’s time for me to buy a boat of my own and that is when it all began.
I guess what I love about bass fishing the most is the camaraderie with all the members. Chatting and sharing everyone’s life stories and how they were able to catch their fish as well as the competition against you and the fish to see which one is smarter”.
Way to go Johnny we all congratulate you on a great performance!
See you on the water: Big Ed!
