Five new members have been inducted into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame (BFHOF) during an evening when a record amount of money was raised for the organisation’s rapidly expanding programmes.

More than 250 industry representatives attended the event, which was held for the third year running at the Johnny Morris Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium, in Springfield, Missouri.

“The live and silent auctions were wildly successful,” said BFHOF Board President, Donald Howell. “The proceeds will allow us to substantially further our mission of celebrating, promoting and preserving the sport of bass fishing.” 

“We feel like we are growing exponentially,” said BFHOF Vice President, John Mazurkiewicz. ” The money that we have raised will help that continue, but the real catalyst behind our acceleration is the huge number of people who have put hours of work into the process. Building this hall is a labour of love and we are thrilled that the public is increasingly realising that this is a celebration of our collective history.

“We have momentum now and we expect next year’s event to be even bigger and better,”

Inducted into the BFHOF were: Ed Chambers, Chris Armstrong, Mark Davis, David Fritts and Davy Hite.
