Alabama’s Wes Logan still remembers the day when he was 9-years-old and his dad bought him his first pair of Costa Sunglasses at Mark’s Outdoors in the Birmingham suburbs. 

Fast forward 17 years to Monday in front of a huge crowd at his home lake of Neely Henry, when Logan, now age 26, cried his eyes out behind a pair of Costa Fantail frames while hoisting his first Bassmaster Elite Series blue trophy.

His victory will pay $100,000 from B.A.S.S. with a $3,000 bonus from Costa’s new Compete + Conserve contingency program. Ironically, he lost a pair of Costas in the heat of competition on Neely Henry when he scratched his head in a moment of deep contemplation. 

“I had my Costas on the back of my head over my ballcap until the sun got bright, scratched my head stressing out over what my next move should be, and my glasses fell into the Coosa River,” he grinned backstage.

Not only will the $3,000 Compete + Conserve bonus buy another pair of sunglasses and a lot of boat gas, but Logan will also get to choose a Conservation Organization to receive a $500 donation in his name from Costa.
