Feider Wins Toyota Tundra with Lake Fork 9-pounder

Seth Feider paced the front deck for nearly four days at Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest wondering if the 9-pound 9-ounce bass he caught on Day 1 of the tournament would be large enough to win him a brand-new Toyota Tundra.

In the end, the Lake Fork beast was the biggest bass of the history-rich event, and the mullet man from Minnesota grabbed the oversized trophy key like an air guitar at the final weigh-in Sunday afternoon.

"It's been stressful. I've probably checked BASSTrakk more times than Patrick Walter's mom to see if anybody had caught one bigger than me today," said Feider.

The Tundra-winning bass bit a green gizzard shad-colored Ott's Garage Rapala Slim tied to 12-pound line in 4 feet of water.

"I just want to thank Toyota for investing in the sport we all love, for sponsoring B.A.S.S., and supporting anglers the way they do. I really appreciate all Toyota does for bass fishing," Feider told fans from the weigh-in stage.

The 381-HP Tundra, which is assembled in San Antonio, will certainly serve Feider well. Whether he's driving down a dusty road in search of mallards this off season or towing his boat safely to the 2021 Bassmaster Classic in Fort Worth, he'll always be thankful the 9-pounder he caught on Day 1 held-up for four days to earn him a brand-new Toyota.
