'Bassdozer' takes PAA position

'Bassdozer' takes PAA position

The Professional Anglers Association (PAA) announced that it's tabbed fishing media veteran Russ "Bassdozer" Comeau to serve as the organization's communications director, effective immediately.

"We are very excited to have Russ, his knowledge and expertise join the ranks of the PAA," said president Dave Mansue.

The PAA operated during 2012 with that position unfilled. Alan Clemons previously held the post before leaving to become the editor of a deer-hunting publication.

Comeau (pictured interviewing Harold Allen at the 2012 Toyota Texas Bass Classic) began a career on Wall Street in the late 1970s before moving into the sportfishing industry in 2000. He helped Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits become a household name among bass anglers in the U.S. and also aided Sebile during its quick rise to prominence in the American market.

His role with the PAA will include increasing the organization's social media presence and website traffic, writing weekly stories for the website, covering PAA Tournament Series events and helping to gain new sponsors.

Ive been attending PAA events and forging relationships with PAA members for several years now, leaving no doubt that this is an organization thats growing quickly and that I wanted to be a part of, he said.
