FOND DU LAC, Wis. (Feb. 8, 2017) – With the start of the 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series only days away, Quicksilver Products has added its final QCREW member, Oklahoma native Jay Brainard.
Brainard is entering his second year on the Elite Series and is looking to match his success in the 2015 Central Opens Series when he was named Angler of the Year. Quicksilver Marine Parts & Accessories will keep Brainard’s Bass Cat Cougar and Mercury 250 OptiMax Pro XS running at peak level as he competes against the best anglers in the world.
“Jay has a unique background of performing in high-pressure situations over his bull fighting and bass tournament careers,” said Eric Reilley, marketing manager of aftermarket products at Quicksilver Products. “Quicksilver Products looks forward to partnering with him and his tenacity during the Bassmaster Elite Series. Jay’s competitive drive and mental toughness are requirements on the Elite Tour and are the perfect fit for Quicksilver Products.”
”I am very blessed to run the best boats and motors on the market,” said Brainard. “I depend on my Bass Cat and Mercury every day. I won’t use anything but the best marine products. Fishing is all about confidence, and I have total confidence my boat is running at peak performance with Quicksilver Marine Parts and Accessories.”
Brainard has placed in the Top 10 twice during his professional career, including a second-place finish in the 2015 Bass Pro Shops Central Open #1 on Ross Barnett Reservoir. The second-year Bassmaster Elite Pro will continue to gain valuable experience in the 2017 Elite Series, which kicks off Feb. 9-12 at Cherokee Lake in Knoxville, Tenn.
