Bass Mafia Team

Mark Zona

If it swims, chances are Mark Zona knows how to catch it. Zona — or simply “Z” as he is known throughout the fishing world — has been fooling fish with a rod and reel since he was old enough to walk. He fished his first bass tournament when he was just nine years old and immediately knew the fishing business was his calling. In no time his angling insight, resilient personality and spontaneous humor earned him a fishing show host position on ESPN’s popular Outdoor Block, making him one of the most recognizable faces in outdoors television today.

Brandon Palaniuk

An Idaho native, Brandon Palaniuk burst onto the national bass scene when he won the BASS Federation Nation Championship on the Red River in 2010 and followed that up with a Top 5 finish three months later in the 2011 Bassmaster Classic. Since then, he’s been consistently excellent: he was the 2017 Elite Series Angler of the Year, and has registered 18 Top 10s and three wins.

Greg Hackney

Louisiana native Greg Hackney is the only bass angler in history who can claim to be a World Champion (he won the 2018 General Tire World Championship), a Forrest Wood Cup champion (he won it in 2009) and an Elite Series Angler of the Year (he was the AOY in 2014). Hackney has amassed 11 wins, 84 Top 10s and more than $3.6 million in career winnings.

Justin Lucas

Entering the MLF Bass Pro Tour after the most successful season of his professional career, Justin Lucas was the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year. A resident of Alabama and a native of California, Lucas collected five wins in seven years on FLW fishing as both a co-angler and pro, and has tallied seven wins, 40 Top 10s and almost $2 million in career winnings.
