Minnesota Elite pro Austin Felix won the St. Johns River BassTrakk Contingency Prize and the $1,000 that goes with it. 

The BassTrakk prize goes to the angler whose BassTrakk estimates are closest to his official weight. Felix was perfect. His official weight for the first two days was 30-13, and that’s exactly what he estimated.

This is Felix’s second BassTrakk win. He also won’t it at the Lake Guntersville Elite tournament in 2021.

“It’s just free money,” he said with a smile. “Even if you don’t make the cut you can win money by being accurate with your BassTrakk weights.”

Felix’s payout will be a good bit higher than just the BassTrakk prize. He’s in 5th place heading into Day 4.

Felix went on to say he weighs all his fish and instructs his Marshal to put in the exact weights. His roommate Jake Whitaker is taking the same approach. His BassTrakk estimates for Days 1 and 2 were only off by 1-ounce from his official weight. 

Here’s the BassTrakk Top 10, and how far off each was off from his official weight. 

Austin Felix: 0

Jake Whitaker: 0.1

Bernie Schultz: 0.6

Wes Logan: 0-9

Cliff Prince: 0-10

Tyler Rivet: 0-13

Jamie Hartman: 0-15

Brandon Lester: 1-1

Gary Clouse: 1-3

Taku Ito: 1-5
