If you haven’t heard the name Matty Wong yet, you soon will. Matty brings new excitement to the Bassmaster Elite Series and is expected to become a fan favorite quickly. Learning how to fish on the island Oahu, Hawaii, Wong has been addicted to fishing since his first hookset. At 33, he is the first Hawaiian angler to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series. Wong brings a unique perspective and fresh approach to the series. His imaginative mindset stems from his passion for photography, videography and his diverse portfolio of fishing styles which can be found on his YouTube channel: Capture Fish.
Matty qualified for the Elite Series by coming up through the ranks and winning the 2021 Bass Nation.
“I’m excited to partner with American Baitworks for my rookie season on the Bassmaster Elite Series tour.” said Matty Wong “I’m a fishing geek and the technical design of fishing products really matters to me. Having Freedom Tackle products and BaitFuel tied on this season are going be major tools to help me compete at the highest level in the sport.”
