Saw the thread a few weeks ago on who the next great will be... At 26 years old Jordan Lee just joined Clunn and Van Dam as the only to anglers to win back-to-back classics.

Simply amazing.

I feel like it takes a little luck to succeed sometimes, but it takes huge amaounts of skill and determination to take advantage of the luck when it comes. I've fished with his brother a few times....Jordan would say Matt is the better stick. Doesn't appear so....does it! The young man has just etched his name in bass fishing history.

Again......amazing

doesn't matter how you get to the "super bowl". It's if you win it. He obviously is consistent enough to get there. And obviously good enough to make the best of it when he does.

That said, I'm sure he will get better with age.

I wouldn't put him the top 5 anglers right now if I had to pick one to win an event. Probably not even top 10. Remember Eli Manning has won 2 Superbowls....

I wouldn't either.....that's why I picked Christie to go wire to wire. ....but give Lee some time. I have not seen many people that have drive and determination GET WORSE. and he's obviously good enough to win on the biggest stage. Win once at a young age and you call it a fluke, or lucky. Back to back and it just might be skill or motivation effecting the outcome.

The equivalent of 6.

Who has a multiple regular season wins but can’t put it together at the biggest event of the year multiple times. CLASSIC Champ is the pinnacle, only other respected title is AOY.

I'm sure there are guys that would trade their event wins for the Classic.

Ya ya I get all that but what I'm saying is that winning a classic or two doesn't make you a great fisherman. Congratulations to him and the accomplishment. I'm not knocking the achievement just for sale of argument, he's not in my top 10 on any given week

As far as right now who are the ten guys ahead of him? Christie, Evers.....?

4th in AOY in 2017, 6th in 2016. Not bad for a guy who is never on them.

If you’re going to go that route he’s won over 1 million in only 52 tourneys. About 20k per tournament. Which is about 800$ more per tournament than Kevin Van Dam.

Let’s give him a few more years before we put him into the “next KVD” catergory.
