Led by champion angler, Edwin Evers in his OPTIMA-wrapped Nitro Z9 and Toyota Tundra, this group of anglers holds high promise for “The Ultimate Power Source™” to be represented on the leaderboard in virtually every major bass fishing event this year.

"There is no better testing ground for high performance batteries than the grueling schedule, long days and big water these anglers will experience," said Cam Douglass, OPTIMA Batteries Director of Product Development and Marketing. "Every year more and more anglers are turning to OPTIMA BLUETOP batteries to power their passion and our pro bass anglers are definitely among our biggest advocates."

Those interested in following Edwin Evers and others on their journey this season are encouraged to follow along on the OPTIMA Facebook page where video and other content will be uploaded during many major bass fishing events. In addition, OPTIMA pros including Evers, Chris Lane, Iaconelli, Bobby Lane, Kelly Jordon and Tim Horton will be participating in Major League Fishing, the groundbreaking new concept also sponsored by OPTIMA Batteries.
