Behind the scenes at the 50th annual Bassmaster Classic



Gussy is one of a growing handful of Elite level anglers who run an aluminum boat. His, seen above, is powered by a four-stroke, 250-horsepower Mercury Pro XS. “I love the boat and this is my second year running this motor. It’s been solid and problem free,” Gussy told me. “These new motors are so reliable and good on gas compared to older models, so that’s a real positive, too.”
