TOTINO’S JOINS FLW OUTDOORS LINEUP
In 2007, Johnson will fish as a pro on the
Wal-Mart FLW Tour and the Wal-Mart FLW Series, the two most competitive trails
in professional bass fishing. The 2006 season was a launching pad for Johnson’s
angling career. He started the year by winning the season-opening FLW Tour event
“This is something I’ve always wanted to do,” said the jovial Johnson. “I’ve had a five-year plan to phase out my current job and become a full-time pro. I fished the tour as a co-angler, hoping to finish in the top 10 and become a boater in 2007. It feels kind of strange to have never fished an FLW Tour event (as a pro) and already be qualified for the championship.”
Johnson said he was particularly grateful to his other main sponsor, Ranger Boats, which has been his biggest ally throughout his career.
“For one, I’m thrilled to be with Totino’s. It’s a great family product, which can be enjoyed by many. I’m looking forward to working the Family Fun Zone. As you can tell, I’m a people person. I love working with kids, and I love talking with people.”
