Bob & Hannah Allen
Bobby and Hannah Allen are a husband and wife team that love the outdoors. Whether it’s chasing blue marlin in Cabo, catching roosterfish in Costa Rica, fishing the Gulf of Mexico or chasing whitetails in East Texas we share a love for the outdoors and each other that is undeniable. Both our love for the outdoors started at a young age, Hannah chasing huge whitetails in the snow of Kansas and Nebraska and Bobby running trotlines and hunting hogs in the river bottoms of East Texas. Hannah’s biggest whitetail to date is a 191” 10 point killed in Kansas. Bobby being a firefighter we named our boat “Firewater”, a 34’ center console, that we both own and operate out of Port O’ Connor, Tx. Team Firewater fishes offshore tournaments every year up and down the gulf coast. We spend our summers on the coast and our winters in the woods, anytime we aren’t at work we are on the water or in the woods. We are excited to team up with Taiga Coolers, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Team Firewater and Taiga Coolers.

Living in the Sportsman’s Paradise has given him the opportunity to follow his passion of bass fishing in some of the most fertile waters the country has to offer. Raymond currently fishes the Southern and Central Open B.A.S.S. circuit where he recently finished 3rd in the co-angler division on the Arkansas River. He incorporates his love for fishing with numerous charity events such as the March of Dimes, Autism, and Alzheimer Services, helping raise money and awareness through competitions.

My name is James Mayle. I was born on January 23, 1988 with a passion for the outdoors. I traveled the world as a child following my father who was in the army for 22 years and currently reside in Newark, Ohio. I enjoy fishing and recently discovered I have a true love for competitive bass fishing. I currently compete in 4 different circuits including the FLW bass fishing league (buckeye division) where I have qualified for the regional tournament 4 times. I am driven by the idea of being able to make bass fishing my profession. Besides fishing I enjoy hunting, meeting new people, wood carving, and sharing my knowledge of the outdoors with children.
Alan started catching catfish when he was just 4 years old. Subsequently, he has caught many species and sizes of fish, including Marlin. When he was 18 years old, he earned his U.S. Coast Guard Master’s License. He used it to fish and spearfish the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the coasts of South Florida and the Florida Keys. Later, he began fishing and spearfishing charters in the Gulf of Mexico, where he continues to score many species of big fish aboard the Serial Killer II.

I am 17 years old, and have been in the woods or on the water ever since I was old enough to stand up. After countless trips with my dad and him teaching me the ropes, I began to have a passion for the sport of fishing. Fishing basically takes up all my time, whether its pond fishing or high-school bass tournaments. I Live in Dallas, TX and focus on targeting Largemouth Bass and Crappie the majority of the time. With the left time I have, video editing and production fills up the rest. I run a YouTube channel by the name of "W2 Outdoors" and try to capture every memory I can on camera. Its a way I can combine my passion for Fishing and Technology. The tournaments I fish are through my high-school division and Other Trails that are around my area. Growing up playing sports made me very competitive, Which is why I enjoy fishing Tournaments so much.
