Missile Adds Morgenthaler and Announces Bomb Squad
Salem, VA – December 17, 2012 – Missile Baits is proud to announce the addition of Chad Morgenthaler to the Missile Baits pro staff. He joins Ish Monroe and John Crews. Chad has been fishing professionally for more than 10 years and has quite a list of accomplishments including qualifying for the Bassmaster Classic 3 times, qualifying for the TTBC 5 times, and being a 2 time Lake Toho Challenge winner. Morgenthaler will have a full schedule in 2013 since he is fishing the FLW Tour, the PAA Tour, and all 3 divisions of the B.A.S.S. Opens. In addition to the tournaments, Chad is very active with the PAA, a high school fishing club, and recently hosted his 7th annual benefit tournament.
Chad expressed his enthusiasm by saying, “I’m really excited about the opportunity to work with such an accomplished pro staff and a new aggressive company. I’ve known John for years and he is definitely an out of the box thinker, which is reflective in the research, development and marketing of Missile Baits. Simply put – Missile Baits catch fish and will definitely provide bass anglers with an added competitive edge.”
John Crews, company owner and fellow pro staffer, says, “I have known Chad for a long time. He certainly understands the business and promotional end of this business very well. Chad is also a very talented angler. We look forward to working with him and having him help grow Missile Baits.”
Missile Baits has finalized its line up of Bomb Squad members. Many, many anglers sent in resumes, which made it an arduous task for the Missile Baits’ staff to choose the proper anglers. The Bomb Squad has members from California to Virginia and New York to Texas. The list of Bomb Squad anglers is very accomplished.
Bomb Squad Coordinator, Shannon Wheeler, says, “There was just a ton of interest from anglers all over the country so it was amazing. We felt honored that there were so many anglers that believe in our products. We know that we have a very talented and well spoken group of anglers representing Missile Baits.”
