Pittsgrove NJ, January 21, 2019. Professional Edge Fishing, Inc., a brand and angler representation company, announces new sponsorships for MLF Bass Pro Tour Angler Ish Monroe, 2019 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler and Bassmaster Classic Qualifier, Garrett Paquette and FLW Tour Pro, Hunter Freeman.

Ish Monroe

Ish Monroe, who won the MLF Elimination round in the inaugural MLF Bass Pro Tour at Lake Toho in Osceola County, FL, has been sponsored by Go RVing, a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage people to discover the adventures found when RVing. Go RVing maintains a website that describes styles of recreational vehicles, where to buy or rent them and then suggestions on where to go and what to do when you get there. For Monroe, those answers are simple, his RV is his home away from home on the MLF tournament trail.

Courtney Bias of Go RVing explains, “RVs and the outdoor lifestyle go hand in hand and Go RVing is looking forward to sharing Ish’s passion for both.

Hunter Freeman

Professional Edge Fishing is also proud to announce the sponsorship of Hunter Freeman, 2018 FLW College Fishing National Champion and 2019 FLW Tour Pro, by Salmo Performance Fishing Lures. Salmo, now in its 27th year, produces award-winning crankbaits at their facility in northern Poland. Each lure is hand-crafted by a team of artisans, many of whom have been with the company for over 20 years. Every lure is individually tank tested and tuned by hand to ensure they meet the highest standard of performance.

“We are really excited to be partnering with yet another promising young angler rising in the ranks of the FLW” says Greg DeVries, Director of Sales and Marketing for Salmo North America. “Hunter’s passion for fishing and amazing work ethic aligns well with Salmo’s approach to everything we do. We are really looking forward to being an integral part of Hunter’s arsenal as he works towards achieving his goals.” Hunter is the 2018 FLW College National Champion and is now competing in the big leagues on the FLW Tour. He has enjoyed excellent success and is looking to make another run at the Forest Wood Cup.

Garrett Paquette

Big Bite Baits, AFTCO and Sunline, all represented by Outdoor Brands Team, have jumped on board to sponsor Bassmaster Elite Series Angler, Garrett Paquette. Mike Valster, President of Outdoor Brand Team explains, "As a young angler, I felt Garrett had tested himself well on the water in a short period of time across the country, while also representing himself in a professional manner. He was on our field staff in 2018 and growing with him onto the Elite Series in 2019 was an easy choice. I continually look for new anglers to work with our brands and join our top performing pro staff. I feel Garrett will be a great fit for our brands in 2019."
