One of the original Major League Fishing anglers, Mark Davis is also one of only a handful of pros in history to win the Bassmaster Classic and the B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year title in the same year (1995). Davis also claimed AOY honors in 1998 and 2001, and has racked up six wins, 64 Top 10s and $2.3 million in career winnings. In 2019, Davis was inducted into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame.
Mark Davis has been a regular on B.A.S.S. tournament leader boards ever since entering his first event with that trail in 1986. Davis is gearing up with Lew's rods and reels for the 2012 tournament season. Davis' first baitcast reels were Lew's Speed Spools given to him on his 16th birthday by his dad. Raised on spinning gear, Davis credits his introduction to Lew's baitcasters as being instrumental in his fondness for fishing deep-diving crankbaits.
