Team TroKar could not ask for a better start to the 2012 season. After two Elite series events, Lazer TroKar pros Skeet Reese and Brent Chapman have the one and two spots for Angler of the Year. Jeff Kriet and Shaw Grigsby have each had a top 10 finishes in a Bassmaster Elite series. Gerald Swindle, Jason Williamson, and Jonathan VanDam have each achieved a top 25 this season with only a few events down. Only time will tell how the season will end up.
Skeet Reese seems to be back to his normal self after a rough season in 201l when Skeet did not qualify for the Bassmaster Classic. This year seems to be similar to his 2009 season where he won the Angler of the Year. Skeet placed 5th at his first event of the year on St John River, Fl. His next event proved to be even better when he placed 3rd on Lake Okeechobee, Fl. If these first two events say anything, it’s that Skeet should have an amazing race for the Angler of the Year.
Brent Chapman has had just an incredible start to the season. Brent ripped out of the starting gate by winning his first event of the year at the Central Open #1 on Lewisville Lake, TX. This win has set the pace for his season. Brent showed up to the Bassmaster Classic and took 18th. After the Classic, Brent has been on a roll placing 4th and 5th in the last two Elite Series events.
The season may still be young but Team TroKar hopes to continue to win and improve on their finishes. Lets wish all of the Lazer TroKar pros the best of luck in the upcoming events.
