Our goals

A Mission to Build Icons and Foster Passion

The Bam Pro Tour is a pivotal platform not just for showcasing your incredible talents but also for transforming the landscape of bass fishing on the West Coast. Our goal is to create icons in the sport, elevating your profiles to unprecedented heights and, in the process, igniting a deeper passion for bass fishing among the community. This journey is about bringing more enthusiasts into the fold and showcasing the thrill of the sport to a wider audience.

Leveraging Media to Amplify Our Voices

 Our strategy hinges on harnessing the power of social media, television, and print media to reach as broad an audience as possible. By sharing our stories, successes, and the sheer excitement of bass fishing, we aim to captivate and inspire. This media exposure is not just about highlighting the sport but also about creating personal brands and legacies that resonate with fans and followers.

 Innovating and Evolving Together

 As we move forward, the Bam Pro Tour is committed to constant innovation. We will twist, turn, and shape this tour, striving to make it the most memorable and impactful bass fishing tour the West has ever seen. Your feedback and experiences are invaluable as we evolve together in this endeavor.

Unparalleled Exposure Opportunities

To ensure you receive the exposure you deserve, we have dedicated resources including a camera boat, a skilled videographer, and a photographer. I will personally be on a camera boat, ensuring we capture every moment of your journey. Our event will feature morning, on-the-water, and evening interviews, providing ample opportunities to build your following and connect with fans.

An Invitation to View This as Your Platform

I encourage you to see the Bam Pro Tour not just as a competition but as a golden opportunity to elevate your profile and engage with a growing community of bass fishing enthusiasts. This is your platform to shine, share your story, and inspire others to join the incredible world of bass fishing.

We are on the brink of something truly special, and your participation is key to our collective success. Let’s make history together and show the world the spirit and excitement of West Coast bass fishing.
