As the 2013 Bassmaster Classic approaches, we wanted to take a closer look at the boats many of the anglers will be using during the 2013 Bassmaster Classic at Grand Lake.
Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Fred Roumbanis of Bixby let us take an in-depth look at his boat. The Triton 21XS Elite with a 250 horsepower Mecury Pro Verado motor is one example of these state-of-the-art machines that are worth $60,000 to $70,000 with all their features.
His is similar to others, with a 21-foot fiberglass hull, 95-inch beam and dry hull weight of 2,000 pounds for stability and for smoother running at speeds up to 80 mph.
Look closely and you might be surprised at the many features these tools of the professional bass fishing trade provide. Click on the circles below to find out more about each part of the boat.

Fred has relied on Optimum baits for his tournament success over many years. In 2012, Boom Boom started using the Optimum Opti Shad swimbait as a trailer on his Pepper Jigs Long Neck Roumbler, As Fred puts it, “This is a deadly combination for bass. If you aren’t throwing this on your body of water, you should be. It won’t take but one bait and one day of fishing it and you’ll be hooked and see the advantages this bait has over the competition. The Optimum Opti Shad action is perfect on the back of any vibration jig. Put one on the back of a Long Neck Roumbler and you’ll have a one of my go-to baits.”
