Berkley Announces 2020 Pro Staff Additions

With its legacy of innovation and pioneering use of science to help anglers catch more fish, Berkley announces the continued bolstering of its already-stalwart pro staff with the addition of five professional anglers for the 2020 season.

Beginning with the 2020 professional bass fishing seasons, the following pros will be competing in their respective tours using Berkley baits, line and hooks. As part of their support of the Berkley brand, these accomplished professional anglers will contribute to the continuing success of the company by testing new products and appearing on behalf of the brand at events.

Kelley Jaye – Dadeville, Alabama

“The Berkley Pro Staff has long been a virtual who’s who of the world’s greatest bass anglers due to the fact that pros trust their success to our products. These top-shelf pros certainly belong in the mix,” said Berkley Vice President of Marketing Jon Schlosser. “We rely on our pros to help us tell the story about how science and innovation leads to more – and bigger – fish. We’re proud to have so many accomplished pros on the Berkley Pro Staff and expect these newest additions to the team to help take the brand to even greater heights.”
