With over 40 years’ experience as a professional angler,
Charlie Ingram is a fixture in every bass tournament trail in America. Charlie
Ingram is one of the only bass pros to have ever taken a president out fishing.
As a matter of fact, President George Bush fished with Ingram as secret service
agents follow their every move in boats of their own! During the outing, which
was being filmed for his TV show, Fishing
University, he caught the largest bass he ever caught, weighing in at 12
pounds! "I didn't mean to show up the president, it just happened!",
He is a professional speaker featured at workshops,
seminars, hunting and fishing events and has appeared in major publications
including FLW Outdoors, Outdoor Life, BASS, North American Fisherman,
Bassmaster, Fishing Facts, and Bassin'. He was inducted into the "Legends
of the Outdoors Hall of Fame" in 2010 and served on the Board of Directors
for the PAA.
Ray Brazier is a veteran tournament angler with twenty plus years’ experience. He gained
recognition in the early years as the engineer that could tweak a boat to its
fastest speed. He was surrounded by some of the fastest people in the world on
water such as Jerry Jaco and Darrus Allison. When B.A.S.S. introduced the WFC (World
Championship Fishing) of course, Ray was among those chosen. In the first
event, anglers fished the first half of the day and then with the same boat,
ran a slalom course, with the fastest time around the course winning the event.
That first WFC paid $200,000! For more than 20 years, he has made his living
exclusively through the fishing industry.
