LAGOS DO SABOR, PORTUGAL  |  OCTOBER 16 – 22, 2023  

ROUMBANIS & FRITTS AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Fred Roumbanis, the veteran angler from Arkansas teamed with Bass Fishing Hall-of-Famer David Fritts to finish 4th in the pairs standings at the recent Black Bass World Championship at Lake Sabor in Portugal. They were the most consistent of the three American duos in the event, placing 5th on the first day and 11th in the final round (one day was canceled due to severe weather).

Roumbanis has been a member of the gold medal-winning USA Bass team in three straight editions of the World Championship. In 2022, he teamed with James Watson to capture top honors among pairs.

“I love the format,” he said. “I feel like I’m a better international fisherman now than I am against our guys and it’s always a huge honor to represent our country going against fishermen of that caliber.
