Even though 2016 will be considered his rookie season on the Bassmaster Elite series, Adrian Avena is no stranger to the pro fishing scene. With two career wins on the FLW tour this "Jersey Boy" lives by the quote "Its hard to beat a man who never quits." From a very young age, Adrian knew he wanted to do something related to fishing, and once he was introduced to tournament bass fishing in 2008, he became hooked.
