Mark Rose chosen for Cabela's All-America First Team
Moore, OK - The CABELA'S ALL-AMERICA team was created to recognize anglers who excelled during the 2011 Bassmaster Elite Series, FLW Tour Majors, and PAA Tournament Series seasons. Performances in the Bassmaster Opens, FLW Tour Opens and FLW EverStart Series tournaments were also taken into consideration.
The ALL-AMERICA team was chosen by a voting panel that consisted of members of the bass fishing media and anglers were selected based on a combination of on-the-water tournament performance as well as contributions to the sport/industry during the 2011 season.
Based on votes, the Top 10 anglers were broken down into five First Team ALL-AMERICA anglers and five Second Team ALL-AMERICA anglers. Each First Team ALL-AMERICA angler will receive a $2,000 gift card courtesy of Cabela's and each Second Team ALL-AMERICA angler will receive a $1,000 Cabela's gift card.
The CABELA'S ALL-AMERCA members were honored at a banquet during the third annual Fish & Chips combination bass fishing and poker tournament this week at Downstream Casino near Grand Lake in Oklahoma.
