New Iberia, LA
Caleb Sumrall traces his both love and initial education of fishing back to his dad Steve and grandfather Ken Delcambre, and the time spent on the waters of South Louisiana. While Caleb grew up fishing, during his high school years he gravitated more toward golf, and later settled down with a full-time oil field job and eventually a family. In 2012, some of his buddies encouraged him to start fishing local tournaments and then B.A.S.S. Nation events, which eventually led to him winning the 2017 Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. His win allowed him Elite Series invitations throughout 2018 and a 2018 Classic berth. In 2018, Caleb finished in the money nine times—four times on the Elite Series (including a 13th place at Lake Oahe), four in the Bassmaster Opens (including a ninth at the Championship on Table Rock) and his Classic debut. In between Bassmaster events, Caleb works as a fishing guide at Toledo Bend and the Sam Rayburn Reservoirs.
