Wrestlers Who Fish: Greg Vance; Dubuque Wahlert ‘12/Loras College
So did you know that one of the state of Iowa’s best and most accomplished young bass fishermen was a wrestler? Wait til’ you see some of the accolades he’s put up in his fishing career.
Greg Vance was a 3X state qualifier for Dubuque Wahlert who graduated in 2012. His head coach, Joe Kane is my personal best friend, so I always kept up with how he was doing and watched him when I could. A scrappy, fierce competitor, for sure! He placed 5th at state as a Junior in 2011 at 2A 126. He qualified for state as a Senior again, but was eliminated that year. He ran into some stronger than usual competition at state that year. I mean, when future D1 champion Drew Foster (UNI) is the one who beats you out, that’s a stronger than usual draw.
Greg spent some time wrestling at Loras College after HS.
Greg is currently a Bassmaster Opens Pro. Check out his bass fishing accolades:
2016 Bassmaster Classic Qualifier
3x Iowa Bass Nation State Champ
2x Bassmaster National Qualifier
6x Bassmaster Regional Qualifier
Cabelas 10K champion
Heck yeah, keep it up. Greg!
