Navionics Pro Spotlight: David Chong, Professional Bass Angler

David Chong, Professional Bass Angler

David Chong has been fishing competitively for over 20 years and holds more than 30 tournament wins. His heart lies in tournament fishing; in a typical season he competes in over thirty different competitions. He doesn’t just fish for bass, either, but also perch, crappie, pike, and walleye. In the upcoming 2014 season he plans to compete in the Renegade Bass Tour, CSFL Bassmania Tour and the CBAF Circuit, as well as The Kingston Canadian Open of Fishing, Berkley B1, BPS Simcoe Open and the TBF Eastern Divisional to start.  David is also passionate about introducing kids to fishing, and commits his time whenever possible to make sure that children’s fishing events are a success.  This year, he will host the 10th Annual Catch a Dream Kids Fishing Derby for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization.

When not on the water, David hosts various panels and seminars at many different events. His seminar, “Bass Talk”, became so popular that it morphed into what is now a full winter tour where the accomplished professional anglers teach everyone from rookies to veterans tips and tricks to better catch fish. He’s an accomplished writer and popular fishing television guest with articles published or featured in a dozen magazines such as In-Fisherman and Outdoor Canada Magazine and TV guest appearances on shows like Extreme Angler TV and FishCity TV.
