"The result was nothing short of mind-blowing, a revelation of dollar amounts that will have fans talking for weeks to come. Consider the total sponsorship dollars that these top-echelon anglers earned in 2006:

• Skeet Reese $600,000

• Gerald Swindle $515,000

• Kevin VanDam $500,000

• Jason Quinn $400,000

• Michael Iaconelli $370,000

• Marty Stone $320,000

Keep in mind that this is just income from sponsors. It does not include tournament winnings or residual income from doing seminars (which can bring as much as $5,000 a day) and other public appearances."

Looks like some of you that would HO yourself out for $300 a month are selling yourselves way short.... roflmao

I remember reading this in Bassmaster magazine in 2007. I couldn't believe it. And around that time is when a number of those pro's starting touring in tractor Trailer rigs. Don't see too much of that anymore.

Has sponsorship dollars have decreased since 2007? When was the hay day of sponsorship money for the top pros? That's a lot of money for sure!

Sponsorship spending slowed a little from 2008-2010 but overall spending is much stronger now.

The Classic has never paid $1M to the winner. In addition when it was reduced from $500,000 to $300,000 they also did not take all that money away. They spread it out farther amoung the field. The Classic pays out over $1M in total to the field.

The only way you got the $1M with FLW was by being a Ranger owner back in the day if you won.

Economy was a lot better and lots of companies had more fun money to toss around.

I bet the list doesn't look much like that post '08. Sure the top 3 or 4 still getting paid, but a lot less down the line.

I was asking about sponsorship money to anglers, not payouts for winning a tournament.
