Justin Lucas on Evinrude E-TEC: Tournament Performance

Evinrude Pro Justin Lucas is preparing to compete in next week’s Forrest Wood Cup. He can develop his fishing strategy and decide which places to fish, but as he says in this video, if he doesn’t have a reliable engine behind his boat, he’s not going to succeed.


In this exclusive video, Lucas talks about why he’s been running an Evinrude E-TEC 250 H.O. engine on the back of his boat for the last five years.  For him, it’s a matter of being successful in his profession: “I make a living cashing check in tournaments. If I don’t make it from Point A to Point B and back to Point A, I don’t make a living anymore.”


His Evinrude E-TEC engine helps him succeed by being reliable, fuel-efficient, and durable. Since it can go three years or 300 hours without any dealer scheduled maintenance, he can be out on the water focusing on catching the biggest fish, and not worrying about his engine.


He sums up his feelings on his Evinrude E-TEC engine with this: “I know one thing, though. I am always going to make it back to weigh-in on time with this motor.”
