About Dean Rojas
Born July 31, 1971 in Minneola, New York, Dean Rojas and his family moved to San Diego when he was just three. It was there that he discovered his love for fishing. Self-taught on magazines like Bassmaster, Dean and his brothers would often bike over to a nearby lake in search of bluegill and bass. Dean became a professional angler at just 21 years old, and quickly rose through the ranks to join the Bassmaster Top 150 tour. In 2001, Dean left an indelible mark on the pro fishing world: his five bass 45-2 on the opening day of the Lake Toho 150. His record is still the highest single-day, five-fish weight ever recorded in B.A.S.S. history. Dean currently resides in Lake Havasu, Arizona with his wife and two boys, and with 4 career wins and 46 Top 10 finishes, he’s ready for another banner year at Bassmaster.
Gander Mountain is excited to partner with Dean for the 7th year, and we wish him the best of luck in the 2017 Bassmaster Classic tournament!
