Hiawassee, Ga., Sept. 24, 2018 - Yamaha Pro Justin Lucas is the 2018 Toyota®Bassmaster® Angler of the Year. Starting the tournament on Lake Chatuge with a 4 Stroke Outboard Motor eight-point lead in the AOY season standings, Lucas had solid catches on Thursday and Friday, stretching that lead to an almost-insurmountable 47 points. Lucas’ title marks the second consecutive AOY win for Team Yamaha; Brandon Palaniuk was named AOY in 2017.
“I've always considered myself a better prespawn, spawn and maybe a little bit of a postspawn fisherman, and then I kind of struggled after that,” Lucas said. "So I can't explain it. This summer, I’ve just caught fire of 15 Hp Outboard Motor and it hasn’t slowed down.”
