A Band Of Anglers announces a new partnership for 2020 with Bassmaster Elite Pro, Brad Whatley out of Bivins, TX. This partnership will push exposure into the freshwater bass fishing arena A Band Of Anglers and support Whatley’s efforts to secure top place finishes.
“We are very excited to have Brad as part of the team. ABOA products and Brad’s fishing talents should blend very well and we are looking forward to big things from this great Texas fisherman!” Paul Michele, Global Director Sales & Marketing
Whatley grew up fishing with his Dad for crappie and catfish on Caddo Lake, and after he got out of college, he bought his first boat, and you could say the rest is history. He worked his way up through local bass club tournaments, and always dreamed of participating in the Bassmaster Classic. In 2015, blessed with an opportunity, he started fishing the Bassmaster Central Opens. In 2018, he finished second in points in the Central Opens and earned his spot in the 2019 Classic along with an invite to the Elites.
For the year 2020, Whatley is going into his second year as a Pro on the Bassmaster Elite Series. Showcasing two Top-5 finishes in the Bassmaster Central Opens, on Fort Gibson Lake and Ross Barnett Reservoir, he also had three Top-25 finishes in the Elites last year, with those coming on the St. Johns River, Lake Lanier and Lake Hartwell.
