Hometown Pro Fisherman Mark Menendez Joins Seminar Speakers at Paducah Open Season Sportsman’s Expo

PADUCAH, Ky. (January 8, 2021) — Mark Menendez will bring a hometown feel to the Paducah Open Season Sportsman’s Expo, January 15-17 at the Paducah-McCracken County Convention & Expo Center in Paducah, Ky.  
The Paducah native has spent the majority of his career as a Pro Fisherman, travelling the country for tournaments. Menendez, who is a three-time Bassmaster Champion, will share insight on bass fishing and his career on the Pro Tour. He will also educate show attendees on crankbaits through water temperature.

Menendez has career earnings of more than $1 million, along with success in individual tournaments and season-long point standings, a testament to his passion and skill for competition. The 47-year-old is a fan favorite wherever he goes, thanks in large part to always being accessible to fans and interacting with them.

“This is such a great event for Sportsman to attend,” said Menendez. “Hunting season is winding down for some, while fishing is just around the corner. Getting the family out to the show is fun for all. As part of the Seminar Series, it is my hopes to extend 30 years of Bassmaster experience to help anglers catch more Bass.”

While he thrives on the competition, Menendez has also worked diligently to remain available for public appearances, big and small, alike. He makes sure to always have time for outdoor writers, photographers, as well as radio and television hosts. That effort leads to Menendez and his sponsors being visible to millions of consumers each year.

Menendez will part of fishing demos taking place at the Hawg Tank as part of the Seminar Series. He will make one appearance on Friday, January 15, three visits to the Hawg Tank on Saturday, January 16 and one visit on Sunday, January 17. For a full Paducah seminar schedule, CLICK HERE.
