Powroznik Powers into Top 10 on St. Lawrence River

Team Livingston pro Jacob Powroznik has a very basic philosophy about smallmouth: “Smallmouth will bite. I promise you, if you can find them, you can get them to bite.”

Powroznik Day 3 St Lawrence blog header

Powroznik has been finding them all week on the St. Lawrence River. After Day 3 at the sixth Elite Series event of the 2015 season, Powroznik has racked up 55 pounds, 6 ounces, and heads into Championship Sunday in eighth place. J-Proz matched his Day 1 limit on Day 3 with 18-15, and is within range of the lead as he preps for the fourth Top 12 of his two-year Elite Series career.

How will Sunday play out? Hard to say, as heavy thunderstorms began churning up the waters of the St. Lawrence right after weigh-in on Saturday, but there’s a good chance that Electronic Baitfish Sounds (EBS) MultiTouch™ technology could play a role in helping J-Proz get fish to bite in stained water.

Championship Sunday takeoff is 6:15 a.m. EST. You can follow Powroznik’s progress all day on Bassmaster Live at
