|ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. --- Tommy Kemos, a veteran walleye angler with an impressive track record in professional tournament competition, has joined the Triton Boats National Walleye Pro Staff.
According to Triton Boats president Earl Bentz, Kemos, of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, has been fishing the professional walleye circuit since 2002, during which time he qualified for an impressive 13 championships and posted five Top 10 finishes. “Tommy Kemos is one of the most proficient and highly respected walleye anglers on the pro tour,” Bentz said. “He was the 2005 Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) Eastern Division champion, the 2006 PWT Championship winner, the 2006 PWT Optima Top Gun, and the 2007 Masters Walleye Circuit Green Bay (Wisconsin) champion. He ranked fifth in Angler of the Year points on the 2011 FLW Walleye Tour, and is currently eighth in the prestigious World Walleye Rankings.” Beyond his prowess as a competitive walleye angler, Kemos is a 10-year veteran in marine industry sales and service, a consultant to leading walleye tackle and lure manufacturers, and a highly regarded seminar speaker, Bentz added. “When he’s not competing, he even finds time to teach classes in fishing at his local high school. Tommy exemplifies the qualities we look for in Triton Pro Staff member, and we’re extremely proud to welcome him to our team.”
“Being named to Triton’s National Walleye Pro Staff is a huge honor,” Kemos indicated. “Triton builds state-of-the-art walleye boats, including the 216 Fishunter that I’ll be competing from on the 2014 tour. With its 21 ½-foot length, 101-inch beam and extra-deep ergonomic interior, this awesome boat is built to handle anything that our big, rough walleye tournament venues can dish out.
