New Iberia’s Bassmaster Elite Series pro Caleb Sumrall will be fishing with a chip on his shoulder when tour action resumes Thursday.

Sumrall’s performance in the first two Elite tournaments of the year left a bad taste in his mouth because the results left him in 75th place in Angler of the Year standings going into the last seven tournaments of 2023. There isn’t a lot of wiggle room in his quest to regain a Bassmaster Classic berth that he missed due to a 46th place overall finish in ’22.
