Bass Fishing Report
Before competing professionally, Chad Morgenthaler was a 13 year veteran of the fire service where he served as a firefighter, captain and arson investigator. Prior to fighting fires, Chad's first career was as an automotive technician, where he specialized in transmission repair.
"I'm very proud to represent a company like Jasper Engines and Transmissions. I feel I have come full circle, especially since my first career as an automotive technician. It just seems like a natural fit for Jasper Engines and Transmissions to be one of my major sponsors."
