Buffalo's Brodnicki at Home with Big Waves, Big Smallies and BoatUS ANGLER

BUFFALO, NY, November 1, 2011 - As an inner city science teacher, 38-year-old Brad Brodnicki has taught, as well as learned, many lessons in persistence, patience and never giving up hope.

Those same character traits are paying off for Brodnicki as a tournament angler. Especially, considering he regularly battles waves taller than his students on a lake riddled with more 'small craft warnings' than perhaps any other inland waterway in the United States.

Brodnicki readily admits that his perfect day of fishing would take place on a flat calm day in July on Lake Erie's Western Basin drop-shotting a Robo worm to suspended Smallies. Problem is, Lake Erie doesn't let tournament anglers pick the weather or the waves. And often, she's meaner than an old-school typing teacher armed with a wooden ruler. But Brodnicki persists, and consistently cashes paychecks in Bassmaster Weekend Series and FLW Bass Fishing League tournaments near his Buffalo home.

Plus, because Brodnicki added the On-the-Road and On-the-Water towing options when he signed up for a BoatUS ANGLER membership, he's hauled home over a thousand "Weigh-to-Win" bonus dollars in just the past six months. Equally good is the peace-of-mind he carries knowing that somebody will be dispatched from BoatUS to help him should he ever have a problem while towing his bass boat on the highway, or piloting it through seven-foot swells.

Brodnicki reasons through his decision to join BoatUS ANGLER in common sense fashion. "Luckily, I have not had to call the 24/7 dispatch center for any sort of roadside or on-the-water assistance, but I've told lots of people and tournament buddies that by spending as little as $38 you can have peace-of-mind and win extra cash when you place high in tournaments."

It's easy to get a BoatUS ANGLER membership with on-the-water and on-the-road towing, and then register for their Weigh-to-Win tournament cash bonus program like Brad did. Just visit or dial (918) 742-6424 and ask for Kendell. She'll make sure you're registered.
