HOW JEFF “GUSSY” GUSTAFSON DOMINATED THE STINGY TENNESSEE RIVER
Humminbird® and Minn Kota® pro, Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson didn’t know what to expect when he arrived in Tennessee for the second stop of the 2021 Bassmaster Elite Series. Changing conditions and unseasonably cold weather across the country had all contributed to what was shaping up to be a challenging week.
The first day of the tournament, Gussy hit his spot in the canal and quickly filled his limit with 18-inch-plus smallmouth. Not only did it give him the top weight for the day, but it also allowed him the time to really learn the area and the presentation he would use to take home the top prize.

Gussy explained that his presentation required a very controlled drift to keep him directly above his bait so that he could see his jig and watch the fish come up to it.
Gustafson shares all of the details of leading wire-to-wire in this tournament recap article, as well as some insight on how he utilized Humminbird and Minn Kota tools during the second Bassmaster Elite event of 2021.
