Veteran walleye pro will compete from Stratos 326XF in 2014

FLIPPIN, ARK. (January 3, 2014) Stratos Boats announces the addition of professional walleye angler Johnnie Candle to the Stratos Pro Staff. As part of his partnership with the boat brand, Candle will compete in the Cabela's MWC and NWT events from a Stratos 326XF.

A resident of Devils Lake, N.D., and 20-year veteran of the professional walleye circuits, Candle won the 2010 MWC World Walleye Championship and has 13 national-championship tournament qualifications and 19 Top-10 tournament finishes to his credit. In addition to being a mainstay on the professional walleye tournament circuits, Candle also guides on his home waters of Devils Lake and is the creator and presenter of Walleye University.

"I'm excited to begin my relationship with Stratos and to be on the water in a 326XF this year," Candle said. "Whether I'm fishing tournaments or guiding clients, my boat is my office and how it performs affects how I make my living. I've got tremendous amounts of confidence in the Stratos brand and love how the 326 is packed with the types of features that will make my days on the water more efficient and successful."

Measuring 20'5" and rated for a maximum 250 horsepower, the performance priced Stratos 326XF is an ideal platform for walleye anglers, complete with a dedicated, 8-foot-long center rod locker, full-featured cockpit and oversized livewell.
