Jack Wingate Fishes BASS 25th Anniversary Tournament:

GON Staff | July 1, 1992

Twenty five years after fishing in the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society’s (BASS) first tournament, the late Jack Wingate, the legend from Lake Seminole, returned to Springdale, Ark. and Beaver Lake to fish the Bassmaster 25th Anniversary tournament.

Jack was among 19 of the 106 anglers who fished the premier tournament who also participated in the silver anniversary event.

So how did Jack do in a tournament of the best bass anglers in the country? Larry Nixon topped the field of 277 anglers with 36-lbs., 8-ozs. and won $21,000.

Jack said he was closing in fast on the leaders when the tournament ended—he finished in a seven-way tie for 267th position with one bass that weighed 12 ounces.
