From Raymarine Press Release

Raymarine Inc., a world leader in marine electronics, is pleased to announce new additions to its team of Pro Ambassadors for 2013. With the release of Raymarine's Dragonfly Sonar/GPS for fresh water anglers, Raymarine has joined forces with some of the most respected anglers in the sport of professional bass fishing.

Raymarine's Pro Ambassadors include legendary veterans and up-and-coming hard chargers eager to make their mark on the professional bass tournament scene. Raymarine's new elite professional anglers include:

Zel Rowland, of Montgomery, Texas has earned 4 BASS tour event titles and qualified for 13 Bassmaster Classics. Named one of the 35 Top Anglers of All Time by the BASS. Known as “The Topwater King”, this charismatic angler has earned over $1 million in tournament winnings over his career.



Bernie Schultz

Bernie Schultz, of Gainesville, Florida is a seasoned veteran of BASS and FLW pro tours. His achievements include two Canadian titles and two US titles, while qualifying for eight Bassmaster Classics and five FLW Championships. Bernie is also a freelance columnist whose works appear regularly in numerous fishing-related print and online publications.

David Fritts of Lexington, North Carolina is one of the most successful veterans in all of bass fishing, and has been professionally fishing for over 20 years. Fritts is known as the crank bait master and he has used this bait almost exclusively to notch his numerous victories and top-10 finishes with both FLW and BASS tournament circuits.

James Niggemeyer, of Van, Texas is a Bassmaster Elite angler and 16-year tournament veteran. James' accomplishments include 1 FLW series win, as well as 3 wins and 9-Top-10's in BASS events. James is widely respected by his friends and peers for his incredible combination of character, perseverance and faith that have brought him much success as a professional angler.

“We are very excited to be aligned with some of the most respected pros in bass fishing,” said Larry Rencken VP of Sales for Raymarine. “As Raymarine continues to develop leading edge technology like Dragonfly with CHIRP DownVision™ we are confident our new partnership will be a win-win scenario for both Raymarine and the pros”

In addition to elite pro bass veterans Raymarine is also proud to announce the addition of two new up and coming competitive anglers:

Trait Crist, of Fort Worth, Texas is an up-and-coming angler fishing the 2013 Bassmaster Opens, and working towards qualifying for the 2014 Bassmaster Elite Series. Realizing that her love of fishing was far stronger than her passion for Wall Street, Trait left her career in investment management to become a full-time professional angler.



Steven Wisdom, from Alabama, fishes the BASS Open Tours and the Professional Anglers Association Tournament Series. An avid outdoorsman, Steven is also the president of FoodSource Lure Corportation. Wisdom's professional fishing career started as a dream at age 6, and the pursuit of that dream has been a lifelong passion for him. A highly competitive angler, Wisdom is on the verge of breaking out and is destined to become one of the all-time greats.
