Carpentaria, Calif. – July 31, 2018 – Cal Coast Fishing, a fishing accessories manufacturer from Carpentaria, Calif., has signed Elite Series pros Ish Monroe and Caleb Sumrall to their national pro staff. The addition adds to a staff that includes FLW pros James Watson, Jimmy Reese, Jeff Dobson and Kyle Cortiana, as well as kayak fishing stalwarts Ron Champion and Jay Wallen.
Cal Coast Fishing specializes in producing products designed to make it easier and more efficient for anglers to pursue their passions. Founder Dave Romanus said that having more perspectives helps in a variety of ways. “We are constantly looking for ways to expand our product line in a way that allows anglers to enjoy their days on the water,” said Romanus. “Adding Ish (Monroe) and Caleb (Sumrall) bring more experience to the table, and they help expand our visibility in the marketplace; adding them is a great addition to our company.”
Romanus said it was his personal interaction with them that made them the choice to add from the Elite Series field. “Ish is obviously a great angler, but what has always impressed me most about him is his genuine nature and work ethic,” said Romanus. “Caleb is younger in his career, but he has seen some success, and he invested the time to get to know us, so it was an easy choice to bring him aboard as well; I couldn’t be happier to have these two flying our flag and helping us move ahead.”
Monroe, who claimed his fifth Bassmaster victory earlier this year at the Mississippi River Elite Series event in LaCrosse, Wisc., said that he loves the way Cal Coast Fishing does things. “Dave is an innovator who still listens to others and takes ideas from those around him,” he said. “Cal Coast Fishing makes products that help me stay organized, be more efficient on the water, and that helps me catch more fish, which is the name of this game. I am excited to join the team, and to being a part of helping develop more products to help myself and other anglers in the future.”
Sumrall also is proud to partner with Cal Coast Fishing. “I had enjoyed talking to Dave for quite some time, and met him face to face at the Classic this year, and really hit it off with him,” said Sumrall. “The product line has helped me on the water this year, and being able to be a part of this team is really something I’m proud of.”
