Land or sea, we support those who value hard work over a long period of time. Get to know the Quaker State Fishing League Worldwide anglers.
Spending the day out on the water at some of the country's best fishing holes might sound like a vacation to some, but in reality, it takes hard work and dedication to reel in a quality keeper fish that can launch you to the top of the leaderboard. Before that can even happen, you need a dependable vehicle to haul your boat to the landing zone. That's why some of the top bass anglers depend on the toughness of Quaker State motor oil.
Meet the Quaker State Anglers
Jimmy Houston of Cookson, Oklahoma, also known as “America’s Favorite Fisherman,”represents Quaker State, running a Quaker State-branded Ranger in FLW tournaments. One of the most well-known and colorful personalities in the world of fishing, Jimmy Houston is best known as the host of his outdoors television shows – but his experience in the outdoor industry is much more extensive. He began fishing professional bass tournaments in 1968. He likes fishing a spinnerbait or jig and lists Lake Tenkiller as his favorite water.
Winner of the Forrest Wood Cup as a co-angler in 2006, Matt Arey has consistently pushed himself to compete at a higher level every year. He made the switch to the front of the boat in 2007 and has since been improving in the Angler of the Year standings. In 2012, he managed a career-high ninth-place in the race. Arey boasts 16 career top-10 finishes in FLW competition. His lone victory as a co-angler came in 2006 at Logan Martin Lake in Ala.
Scott Canterbury started fishing Bass Fishing Leage events in 2003 and has worked his way up the fishing ranks to the FLW Tour. 2012 was Canterbury’s most profitable year so far on the Tour, earning just around $148,000, largely anchored by a second-place finish at the Forrest Wood Cup. Canterbury fell short of a Tour-level win twice during his rookie year on Tour (2008) – he notched a second-place finish on Lewis Smith Lake and had a third-place showing on Lake Norman. He has qualified for the Forrest Wood Cup the large majority of the years he has been on Tour. Canterbury’s FLW Series Eastern Division involvement includes a 2010 season-opening sixth-place finish on Lake Okeechobee and a subsequent fifth-place finish in the Angler of the Year race.
