Mustad, global leader in fish hooks since 1877, continues to strengthen their commitment to Bass Fishing with the signing of Professional Angler Mark Rose.
A veteran on the FLW circuit, Mark Rose has honed his expertise in fishing river systems and offshore structure into an impressive career as one of the sport’s most consistently successful anglers. Along the road to 7 professional titles, he has earned 48 Top Ten Finishes (nearly 5 per year average since 2008), qualified for the Forest Wood Cup 9 times, was chosen a Cabela’s First Team All-American (2011) and won a Rayovac Midwest Angler of the Year title (2005). Notably, Mark is the only angler to qualify for all 9 Texas Bass Classics.
Says Rose, “Most of the fish that I have brought to the scales in all six of my major event wins were caught on Mustad Hooks, so I’m very excited to be a part of this great company and join their Elite Prostaff!”
Known among his peers as a consummate professional, in 2012 Mark Rose was the Inaugural winner of the Goodwill/FLW Sportsmanship Award, and has achieved over $2 Million Dollars in career tournament earnings. Other Mustad Professional Anglers that have reached this select level are Denny Brauer, Kevin VanDam, and Edwin Evers.
“Mark’s track record speaks volumes about his angling skill and competitive drive; you can never count him out. The amount of respect that top level anglers have for Mark, both on and off the water, is tremendous.” says Mustad Sales Manager Steve Tagami. “He is a great ambassador for the sport of fishing, and is an excellent person to represent Mustad.”
In 2016, Rose will be fishing the FLW Tour, FLW Opens, Rayovac Series, BASS Northern and Southern Opens, and the popular Major League Fishing Summit Cup series. Outdoor ministry is a major passion of Mark’s, and he speaks at and hosts events in conjunction with his Faith, Family & Fishing Ministry. Mark also gives seminars and makes appearances at numerous sport shows and events throughout the year.
