Welcome to my world on the tournament trail


DUSTIN CONNELL - 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie, 2017 Elite Series Champion, 2015 Bassmaster Southern Open Champion. Licensed Coosa River Guide.

When I was ten years old I remember going fishing with my brother to local ponds around my house in Clanton, Alabama. I caught my 1st bass with him and was hooked ever since. I can still remember riding my bike to those ponds before school every morning. I then continued fishing throughout college at The University of Alabama, where I graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor in Business Marketing. After graduating college I started guiding on the Coosa River. I am now very blessed to be competing on the Bassmaster Elite Series and living my dream every tournament and every cast I make!!
