Braxton Setzer

MLF Pro Circuit
Braxton is an MLF Pro Circuit angler who grew up in Alabama and still lives there with his wife and son. He began fishing at a young age and continued through college where he was one of the founding members of the UAB fishing team. After graduating with a degree from Auburn in Fisheries Biology, he made the leap to the professional ranks, which is where he has been since 2016. After making the move, he quickly found success with multiple top 10 finishes including a second place finish on Lake Seminole. The deep – rooted passion for the sport continues to drive him as he strives to get better every time he is on the water.

Fletcher Shryock

MLF Bass Pro Tour
I have been fishing professionally now for over 10 years. I have fished both the Bassmaster Elite Series and the Major League Fishing tours.

Hunter Shryock

Bassmaster Elite Series
Hunter’s path to fishing competitively is different than most. While most of the names you hear in this sport have held a fishing rod in their hands since they were young kids, this was not the case for Hunter. He raced motocross from a very young age and started racing professionally at the age of 16. Hunter competed against the best of the best in the AMA Outdoor Nationals and AMA Supercross Series. Injuries and lack of sponsors helped him make the decision to retire early from racing at the age of 21.

Josh Stracner

Josh currently lives in Vandiver, Alabama and 2022 will be fishing his second season competing in the Bassmaster Elite Series. In 2021 Josh was the Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the year.

Chuck Stratton

Chuck Stratton was born and raised in Southeast Missouri. Chuck and his wife of 20 years, Carrie have resided in Chaffee Missouri along with their 3 children Lacie, Colby and Addison for the past ten years.

Caleb Sumrall

Caleb Sumrall, 34 years old going into my 5th year on the Elite series. Worked in the oilfield for 13 years before fishing. Grew up outdoors fishing and hunting. Love sharing the outdoors with my wife (Jacie) and kids (Clelie and Axel)

Jesse Tacoronte

Bassmaster Elite Series
I am always on the hunt for the next best thing. My family says I’m a Serial entrepreneur who needs medical help! They’re probably right.

Jacob Wall

MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit
My name is Jacob Wall. I am 27 years old, originally from Southern Oregon transplanted to Alabama in 2018. 2022 will be my fourth season on the MLF Pro Circuit. I love the outdoors and just love to fish. It has been a dream of mine since I was little to be a professional bass fisherman, to be able to stand here today and say that I am living my dream is a pretty surreal feeling. I currently live just south of Huntsville Alabama with my beautiful fianceMichaella. Our home lake is Guntersville, living only 15 minutes from some of the best boat launches on the lake. I am extremely excited to continue this journey as a professional angler and can’t wait to see what the future has in store.

Jimmy Washam

I am Major League Fishing professional angler Jimmy Washam. I live in West TN with my wife Danielle and our son Jay. My life long dream has been to fish at the professional level. After starting as a co-angler and working my way up the ladder, then juggling several years of fishing professionally while maintaining a full time job as a Deputy Sheriff, I recently retired with nine years of service in law enforcement to fully live my dream. My greatest accomplishments all came in 2021, which were a win in the Toyota Series, Angler of the Year in the Toyota Series, and Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit Title Champion. Winning the Title Championship has truly been life changing, but I am eager to strive for the next big win at the professional level. Fishing has provided me far more than I could have ever imagined, and my faith has guided me through the challenging yet rewarding journey.

Joshua Weaver

MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit
Joshua was born and raised in Macon, Georgia where he grew up hunting and fishing with his dad and brother. At 27 years old he is still one of the younger guys on the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit. In his young career he has amassed 11 tour level top 10s and 5 title appearances, the only thing missing from his resume a WIN!
