Morgenthaler Gears Up for Busy 2015 Schedule


Chad Morgenthaler described his 2014 season back with the Bassmater Elites as “decent” . He showed some of his potential with a 2nd place finish in Toledo Bend, Texas.

2014 is in the books for JASPER-sponsored angler Chad Morgenthaler. The Coulterville, Illinois, native described the previous year as “a decent season”, though he said it was nice to show some potential his first year back with the Bassmaster Elites series. “This group of 108 anglers are extremely talented, and continuously push you to give 110%,” he said.

The highlight of Chad’s 2014 season started at the Classic in Guntersville, Alabama. “I was able to take that momentum and capitalize on it for several months,” said Morgenthaler. “This eventually led to my best tour event finish - a 2nd place at Toledo Bend, Texas.”

JASPER has been Morgethaler’s primary tour sponsor since 2006. He describes the sponsorship as the rock of his career. “They (JASPER) have provided the stability for me in a very volatile sport,” he said. “They have also shown me how to maximize marketing and promotions from their NASCAR experiences.”

Morgenthaler added. “JASPER has shown me what hard work and dedication can do for your career, and allowed me to feel as if I am part of a giant family.”

With 17 events on Morgenthaler’s 2015 schedule, he chose to sum up next year in one word: INSANE. “2015 will take me from the East Coast to the West Coast and from New York to Texas,” he said. “To have a successful season, it will take some diligent planning and an extreme amount of focus. I plan on approaching the year one event at a time, while maximizing the off days for recuperation and listening to my wife Debbie when she advises that it’s time to focus on family time.”

“I would like to thank JASPER for the opportunity to spend time with their Preferred Installers and Outside Sales Representatives through the VIP fishing program,” said Morgenthaler. “The program has allowed me to meet some outstanding people and develop some great personal relationships throughout the years. I’m very excited that the Elite Series will visit new waters next year, allowing the program to expand into additional territories.”
