BRP announced today Evinrude angler Cory Johnston won the northern division of the Costa Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) Series. The tournament, held on Oneida Lake in New York, took place August 18th through the 20th, 2016. Johnston, a Cavan, Ontario-based angler, landed a total of 15 fish for a 50-pounds, 4 ounces total weight that earned him $32,778 and a new Ranger Z518. In addition to winning the tournament, Johnston also received his third northern division Strike King Angler of the Year title.
Cory is the older brother of Chris Johnston who recently won rookie of the year on the FLW Tour. Combined, the brothers landed 95-pounds of bass over three days of fishing with Cory taking the win and Chris finishing in fourth place.
“These wins are all about consistency. Part of that consistency comes from trusting my equipment to deliver no matter what I throw at it,” said Cory Johnston. “This was the first time I ever fished Oneida and I needed to try a number of different spots as the conditions changed from day to day. When the wind picked up on the last day, I relied on the torque and fuel efficiency of my Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine to hit 15 to 20 different areas, find the fish and capture the win.”
“Team Evinrude anglers are continuing to shine this season,” said Christopher Berg, global director of marketing and strategic planning, Evinrude. “With win after win, anglers like Cory Johnston prove that Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboards can be counted on whenever and wherever they’re needed. E-TEC G2 engines deliver up to 30% more torque and up to 15% better fuel efficiency – all while producing 75% fewer total regulated emissions compared to leading four-stroke outboard engines.”
