Jeff Connella takes the Blue Ridge Brawl to Day 4Print
Jeff Connella was in good company on day four of the Blue Ridge Brawl held on Smith Mountain Lake, Moneta, VA. The Bassmaster Elite angler and member of the SFTtackle.com Pro-Staff, made the cut of the top 12 anglers and was laying it down with the likes of some of the world's top pros. Jeff's key baits were the Chatterbait and the V&M Sling Blade. Positioned to go for the win, Jeff commented, "I found fish in practice and then the water muddied up. I didn't go back to them until Friday and that was a mistake. I should have gone sooner because they settled in and started biting well."
Jeff is in the zone as he has consecutively scored higher in each tournament he has fished this year. Being a full-time professional engineer, husband and father keeps you busy enough, but Jeff manages to do all that and fish the Bassmaster Elite Series Professional Tour. Looking ahead to the Southern Challenge, starting May 7th on Lake Guntersville, Alabama, Connella will be ready, and we feel he has a good shot of winning it! Congratulations to Jeff Connella from everyone here at SFTtackle.com!
