Just about every day in the 13 months since Major League Fishing announced that Bass Pro Shops REDCREST 2024 Powered by OPTIMA Lithium would take place on Alabama’s Lay Lake, Dustin Connell has thought about what it would be like to taste victory at the Coosa River reservoir where he grew up fishing.

But in all his dreaming, scheming and practicing, the Clanton native didn’t envision this.

Connell routed the rest of the championship round field on Sunday, stacking 28 scorable bass for 83 pounds – more than 30 pounds better than runner-up Alton Jones Jr. of Waco, Texas. The dominant performance earned Connell $300,000 and made him the first ever two-time winner of the Bass Pro Tour’s championship event.
