Okuma Fishing Tackle announced today it has added Bassmaster Elite Series angler Jeremy Starks to its pro staff.
The West Virginia native, who's preparing to fish his first Bassmaster Classic later this month, will use Okuma rods and reels during the 2013 season. (Click the photo to an enlarged version of his 2013 boat wrap).
I aggressively sought out Okuma this past year because I took notice of the top quality of the products, Starks said. I know they are moving in the right direction and in a hurry. I wanted to be a part of that, and I wanted to be able to rely on a top-quality product for my fishing success. I am truly excited to be on board.
