Bob's Machine "The Official Jack Plate of USA Bass"

State College, PA – February 1, 2024:  USA Bass is excited to announce that Bob’s Machine will once again support our USA Bass Team as the Official Jack Plate of USA Bass. Since 1978, Bob’s Machine has brought innovation to the jack plate market; the first jack plates rated to 600-plus horsepower, the first to offer multiple setbacks and the first to offer color options. At Bob’s Machine, jack plates aren’t just one of their lines of products, they are the main line. Bob’s Machine jack plates are proudly made in the USA.

“We are very thankful to have Bob’s Machine’s continued support,” said USA Bass President Mark Schlarb. “Our USA Bass team will be competing in Canada as part of the Pan American Championship and in Italy for the 2024 Bass Fishing World Championship. Bob’s Machine understands the importance of international sport fishing and is helping make this event possible.”

The USA Bass team will be defending gold medals at both events in 2024. The 2023 Pan American team won gold in Hot Springs, Arkansas on Lake Hamilton.  The World team won a tight race for the World Championship in Portugal. Team Germany pushed the American team to the limit and settled for silver, with Italy taking the bronze.  This year’s Pan American and World teams will be announced very soon. 

Steven Pelini, VP of Sales & Marketing has this to say about the partnership. “As a company that manufactures in the USA, we are proud to support the USA Bass team. USAngling and USA Bass has put together such an impressive group of anglers and we are excited to have them showcase our jack plates & full range of
