Bass Angler Headquarters recently met up with TOP THIS pro Kevin Stewart from Elk Grove, CA. to talk about his 2012 Daiwa Cup Angler of the Year Championship on the WON BASS Tour. To be eligible for the prestigious Daiwa Cup a pro angler has to compete in all three of the WON BASS Pro/Am northern events, the three southern events and finish with the highest amount of points overall. Stewart succeeded this achievement in only his second year of competing for the title. He finished 5th overall in the northern events and 9thoverall in the southern events ending the season a mere 6 points ahead on Shawn Lee.
“I am completely honored and excited to have won this Daiwa Cup, it has been a crazy year of ups and downs but in the end I was fortunate enough to come out on top. To have my name added to the list of Daiwa Cup Champions is just amazing” says Stewart.
