Bassmasters Elite Series Pro Angler, Bill Weidler Conversates with COO, Sean Nichols
Fishing with a Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Angler
A few months ago, I had the honor of spending the day with Bill Weidler, our Bassmasters Elite Series Pro Angler. We met up with Bill in Guntersville, Alabama, and spent a great portion of the day talking with about his life, family and fishing career. Through this conversation, I learned that Bill had wanted to become a professional angler for many years! However, his career for many years in waste water treatment kept him extremely busy. After debating for quite a few years, he finally decided to go all in and try out for the Bassmasters Elite Series.
Accomplishing this status is not an easy task, Bill had to do really well in some lower level events before he could be given the privilege to be on the Elite tour. When speaking to Bill about this, I realized how much hard work and dedication went into reaching the “Pro” status. For Most of the day we cruised around the lake together, it was such a great day to be out in Guntersville. Of course, Bill caught a couple of fish while I got skunked, but it was still a lot of fun. At the end of the day we took a few minutes to recap about the day and speak a bit about our Battle Born Lithium batteries.
Here is a video to give you a glimpse of that discussion:
