Irving, TX – Brock Mosley finally got the monkey off his back. The Yamamoto pro captured his first Elite Series victory at the Folds of Honor Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River, compiling a four-day total of 44 pounds, 3 ounces to finally claim a blue trophy on Sunday afternoon.
Mosley, whose previous five 2nd-place finishes included the 2021 stop on the Sabine River, credited much of his success to the Yamamoto 4″ Senko.
“I started off throwing topwater every morning, but that bite would die after the first hour or so and I’d reach for the Senko,” said the Mississippi pro. “Most of the fish that I weighed in were caught either on a Texas Rig or power-shotting the Senko. I switched between Black and Blue Laminate and June Bug, mainly because I didn’t want to run out of either color.”
Opting for the 4″ Senko, Mosley found that the smaller bait got more bites on a place where he said that there are “not many secrets”.
“I knew those fish were pressured, so I had to go for a finesse approach,” explained Mosley. “The Senko is all about the plastic Yamamoto uses. There is something special about it. It truly sets it apart from the crowd.”
“We couldn’t be any prouder of Brock for his recent Elite Series win,” said Crispin Powley, VP of Fishing at GSM Outdoors. “Brock is an incredible part of our team and ambassador for our brands. I foresee more of these in his future.”
