Angler Hot Spot
YEAR JOINED: 2013

TOP FINISH 2nd 2014
Possibly 1st place but the records fell overboard and Davy Jones won't give them back
Smelt, affectionately called "Silverback" by his fellow Anglers, joined the Tournament in 2013. His entrance promptly changed the entire dynamic of the competition. As they say on the dock "The Shite just got real!" Never before, until now, did an Angler possess such a vast knowledge of the fishing sport. His presence sent a wakeup call to the other Anglers, There's a new Sheriff in town!
Bringing dock, bank and boat skills to the competition, Smelt imparts his folksy wisdom on all of the less adept Anglers. His ability to mentor the younger Anglers with his decades of fishing knowledge while still being a top competitor is what makes him the circuits Big Toe! (The Rumor is Tiger Beat magazine might have a blurb about Smelt in next months edition)
Fellow Angler Pike spoke to us, however briefly, when asked about Smelt's chances of taking down the 2018 Big Fish Trophy "Don't try ridin' herd over that Angler, boy. Those wrinkles are war maps. He's fought bass, sharks, and seen a hundred struttin' peacocks like you get takin' down hard." ...ohhkay Pike thanks for that juicy nugget.
This year’s competition is shaping up to be some of the toughest in the long and storied history of the SANJAYA Invitational. But it's just another day at the dock for Smelt. "You've got to look for tough competition. You've got to want to beat the best" According to Waitz, possibly an avid Bass Angler?
There's no doubt Smelt has his "eye of the Tiger" eye on the 2018 trophy! We would not be surprised to see him hoisting the trophy over his head when this fishing melee is all over. Good luck with the tournament Smelt!
