One of the most consistently successful competitors in his nine-year career on the FLW Tour, recent Idaho transplant Cody Meyer collected over 30 Top 10s and over $1 million in winnings with FLW. He’s also one of the only anglers on the MLF Bass Pro Tour to have been a world record holder: his 10.8-pound spotted bass was the largest spot on record when he caught it in 2016.

Spencer Shuffield

Son of legendary FLW angler Ron Shuffield, Spencer fished alongside his dad on the FLW Tour for several years, racking up success as a co-angler that could be described as nothing short of remarkable: Shuffield finished in the top-10 Co-angler of the Year standings in all five years. He moved to the pro division in 2012, and has gradually become an AOY threat on the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit, finishing in the top five in the 2020 AOY race while racking up three top-10 finishes. When not on tour fishing, Spencer likes to fish local tournaments, go crappie fishing, hunt and play golf. He also enjoys spending time with his wife Kristin, and children Aubree, Grayson and Kennedy.

TYLER WOOLCOTT

Tyler is a Florida native out of Daytona Beach and has spent his entire life on the water. Fishing is in his blood. Growing up fishing alongside his dad since he was old enough to hold a fishing rod, he experienced both the freshwater and saltwater sides of fishing.

The backyard pond is what spawned the love that Tyler now has for competitive bass fishing. He's carried that passion from the Jr. Bassmasters league at the age of 13 all the way up through high school fishing, college fishing, fishing as a Co-Angler, to now fishing his 3-years professionally on the MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit.

CLIFF CROCHET

Now an angler on the MLF Bass Pro Tour, "The Cajun Baby" Cliff Crochet has been fishing from the time he can remember growing up in the Atchafalaya Basin in southeast Louisiana. Cliff joined the Lake Verret Bass Club in 2000 and began doing well in Federation Nation events. He became the youngest-ever Louisiana State Champion in 2006 and set his eyes on fishing professionally. From 2007 to 2009 Cliff competed in the Bassmaster Open series and qualified for the 2010 Bassmaster Classic and an invitation to fish in the Bassmaster Elite Series. As a rookie on the Elite Series, Cliff nearly won the Clark's Hill event, finishing 2nd by 1 ounce. Cliff was also runner-up in the Rookie of the Year race. Since his start on the Elite Series, Cliff has continued to develop his trade and increased his career B.A.S.S. earnings to $444,578. He has also competed in the Bassmaster Open series during those years, notching his first ever win at the Atchafalaya Basin Open in 2016.

Cliff runs the Blazer 650 Pro Tour powered by Mercury.

EVAN BARNES

I am 29 years old living in Hot Springs, AR. This will be my 5th year fishing the MLF Pro Circuit after qualifying through the Toyota Series in 2016. Throughout the course of my career I have finished in the Top 10 eighteen times in 85 total events, with one Tackle Warehouse Title Championship top 10.

When I am not on the road fishing, I am working with Beast Fishing Innovations in Hot Springs or spending time at my church as a pastor. My faith is a huge part of my life and I try my best to use whatever platform God gives me in fishing to share with the world around me. I am excited to return for my 4th year with Blazer Boats. See you on the water!

BRADLEY DORTCH

Bradley Dortch is the very definition of a seasoned fisherman, having been introduced to the sport as a young lad by his father and his two grandfathers. As a boy growing up in the Pensacola, Florida area, he spent his early years on the water, close to many of the Pensacola Basin’s rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, some his earliest childhood memories are based his frequent visits to a small beach house his family owned on the Gulf, and where he honed his skills in the art and science of saltwater and freshwater fishing. It was there that he acquired what would become a lifelong passion for life on the water. “I’ve been fishing for as long as I can recall,” Bradley muses.

Bradley’s first venture into competitive angling dates to the early 1990s, when at age 12 he and his father began to enter local tournaments. His involvement in tournament fishing grew quickly into regional two-man tournaments, where he quickly acquired a skill set that would enable him to begin building a local reputation as a strong competitor. Living in Alabama at the time, he competed in the amateur ranks through the mid 2000s while building a career in the electrical construction industry. He eventually relocated to Orlando, Florida in 2006 to start a career in real estate working alongside his wife, Rebecca. Both Bradley and Rebecca obtained Florida Real Estate licenses and worked in that profession from 2006 to 2013 before his passion for big-time angling brought him back to Alabama.

At age 38, Bradley Dortch has come into his own as a seasoned tournament angler, and has become a household name in the annals of top level tournament fishing. He enjoys playing golf, also, but will quickly admit that he’s much better at fishing. And it’s clear that one of the factors that has enabled his success is the support of wife Rebecca and his 13-year old daughter, both of whom share his love of life in a boat.
