Australian pro bass angler Carl Jocumsen won all there was to win in his homeland. He arrived in the USA five years ago to chase his dream of competing against the best bass anglers in the world. In 2014 Carl made history becoming the first Australian to qualify for the Bassmaster Elites!
Carl’s 2015 rookie Elite season was packed full of highs and lows as he continues to learn his craft at the highest level, but two Top 12 cuts saw him make major air time on ESPN and he has quickly become a favourite of many fans.
Carl has worked closely with Miller over the last five years on the development of the Millerods US Bass rod range, and continues to do so during his 2016 campaign.
Texan Gene Eisenmann, owner of Amphibia Eyewear and the innovator and former managing partner of the famous Hydrowave electronic fish feeding stimulator, is well known in both the fishing industry and professional bass fishing circuit.
Gene is a passionate angler who competes in both the FLW and BASS Open series. With a number of top ten finishes to his credit, Gene is looking forward to a big 2016 season where fishing rather than business will be his main priority.
Gene has joined the Millerods team for our inaugural year in the world of American bass fishing, and we are privileged to have an angler of his stature and experience join us!
JP is our ‘young gun’ who hails from Louisiana. Already a high-achiever at the collegiate level of bass fishing for LSUS, JP also fishes BASS Open events and the Texas Team Trail.
Working in the tackle trade also gives JP a good look at the best tackle on the market and he was keen to come on-board with Millerods after having the opportunity to fish prototype rods in 2015 and realizing “Millerods are the best product out there right now!”
JP has serious aspirations for his bass fishing career and we are proud to be doing our part to help this fine young man along with his “Whatever it takes” attitude.
