The 2020 Champions Tour is rounding out very nicely, as we have forty anglers committed to the three events, all with their eyes on qualifying for the Championship, where they will have the chance to walk away as the owner of a brand new Skeeter Boat/Yamaha Outboard package.
Three new anglers to the Champions Tour field in 2020 include…
Joe Hall –
Joe Hall grew up fishing the Mississippi River and lives in Lake City, the host city of the second stop of the 2020 Champions Tour. Hall started fishing local tournaments around the age of 13 and quickly began to enjoy exploring new water and trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Fishing has taken Joe to many of the best bass lakes in the country, but Minnesota for Joe will always be home.
“After being away from tournament bass fishing for two years, I am looking forward to the Champions Tour format and fishing some of the best bodies of water Minnesota has to offer.”
Mike Mohr –
Mohr has been fishing tournaments since he was 16 years old and won his first larger tournament in 1997, while fishing out of a 16-foot aluminum boat with a 25 hp motor. Mike has fished mostly smaller tournaments in northwest Minnesota but has had some success at regional tournaments like the Sturgeon Bay Open.
“I have a 15 year old son and 13 year old daughter and my tournament pursuits have taken a back seat to their sports the last few years, but I’m excited to put in a good effort this year on the Champions Tour,” explained Mike. “I got my first taste of the format last year fishing the Gull Lake Pro-Am where I finished 5th and it was one of the most fun tournaments I’ve ever fished; the intensity of the format is like none other!”
Asher Pearl –
Asher will be the youngest angler in history competing on the Champions Tour as he will be turning 18 years old the week before the kickoff of the 2020 season on Lake Vermilion. Last season Asher and his high school fishing partner took second place in the SATT TOC event on Lake Vermilion.
“I’m excited and eager to learn from every tournament this year, with the hopes of getting better each and every event,” said Asher. “I look forward to learning from the other anglers on the Champions Tour.”
