On February 26, 2012, Josh Polfer of Nampa, Idaho was living out a lifelong dream: fishing the Bassmaster Classic 2012. As the festivities in Louisiana began, Polfer was signing autographs, responding to interviews and attending dinner parties with his wife Sabrina and fellow Classic anglers.
However, amid the pre-event excitement, Polfer was able to find peace, quiet and time to focus during a confidence-building successful pre-fish on the challenging Red River in Shreveport-Bossier City, La.
The first day of the tournament literally blew in with winds up to 20 mph. Despite the wind and cold, Josh was able to catch his 5 fish limit by 9:15 a.m., using the rest of the day to focus on netting larger more competitive fish. Josh finished the first day with 11lbs. 3oz. placing in the 25th slot.
On day two, Josh stuck with what worked well previously, fishing shallow water using sinkos and flukes. The close of day two found Josh weighing in at 13.1 lbs., climbing up to 19th.
On the final day of the tournament, a frustrated Polfer weighed in at only 5.1 pounds, falling back to the 25th position. Despite the disappointing downturn, Polfer’s level of enthusiasm for the experience remained high.
The Bassmaster Classic rookie absolutely loved every moment of the Classic. “Fishing at the Classic was enough to know that this is what I want to do for a living.” With plenty of support from his wife, fellow Idahoans and fantastic sponsors, Josh remains deeply committed to his goal of several more Bassmaster qualifications in the years ahead.
Dry Creek Outfitters of Murtaugh, Idaho would like to congratulate Josh for his successful year and looks forward to working with him in the future. “Josh is a great guy and an outstanding angler. He has been loyal to all those who have helped and supported him on his trip to the Bassmaster Classic,” commented Brad Perkins owner of Dry Creek Outfitters.
