As an inner-city science teacher, 38-year-old Brad Brodnicki has taught, as well as learned, many lessons in persistence, patience and never giving up hope.
Those same character traits are paying off for Brodnicki as a tournament angler, especially considering he regularly battles waves taller than his students on a lake riddled with more small-craft warnings than perhaps any other inland waterway in the United States.
Brodnicki readily admits that his perfect day of fishing would take place on a flat-calm day in July on Lake Erie’s Western Basin, drop-shotting a Roboworm to suspended smallies. Problem is, Lake Erie doesn’t let tournament anglers pick the weather or the waves, and often, she’s meaner than an old-school typing teacher armed with a wooden ruler. But Brodnicki persists, and consistently cashes paychecks in Bassmaster Weekend Series and BFL tournaments near his Buffalo, N.Y. home.
Plus, because Brodnicki added the On-the-Road and On-the-Water towing options when he signed up for a BoatUS Angler membership, he’s hauled home over a thousand “Weigh-to-Win” bonus dollars in just the past 6 months. Equally good is the peace-of-mind he carries knowing that somebody will be dispatched from BoatUS to help him should he ever have a problem while towing his bass boat on the highway, or piloting it through 7-foot swells.
Brodnicki reasons through his decision to join BoatUS Angler in common-sense fashion. “Luckily, I have not had to call the 24/7 dispatch center for any sort of roadside or on-the-water assistance, but I’ve told lots of people and tournament buddies that by spending as little as $38 you can have peace-of-mind and win extra cash when you place high in tournaments.”
It’s easy to get a BoatUS Angler membership with On-the-Water and On-the-Road towing, and then register for the Weigh-to-Win tournament cash bonus program like Brad did. Just visit BoatUSFishing.com or dial (918) 742-6424 and ask for Kendell. She’ll make sure you’re registered.
