Sean O'Connell and Edward Adams Win 2022 Yamaha Bassmaster Redfish Cup Championship

It’s rare in the world of professional tournament angling for a team to post back-to-back wins, let alone 4 or 5.  Lifting “the big trophy” at weigh-ins has become so common for Team Rainshadow Pro Redfish Anglers Sean O’Connell and Edward Adams, that it has the inshore world asking, “Can anyone beat these guys?”
The team was at it again the weekend of November 5th 2022, this time at the Yamaha Bassmaster Redfish Cup Championship.  An event outside their native Louisiana that would certainly test the methods and resilience of the 4-peat Redfish World Series champs.  Sean and Eddie had a great tournament all around, especially day 3.  See the full tournament details here on  The duo fishes a variety of custom Rainshadow rod builds from the Revelation RX7 Freshwater series, and more recently, the new Eternity RX10 series of high performance rod blanks.  Elite anglers, like other pro athletes, are hypersensitive to equipment.  Batson customized each build for Sean and Eddie to their desired specs and unique fishing styles.  Redfish anglers that want get their hands on these Team Rainshadow custom builds are encouraged to contact us on for build specs and custom builder referrals.
