He has also done well at the Forrest Wood Cup, finishing in the top 10 several times. Bolton has fished the FLW Tour, FLW Series, EverStart Series, and BFL tournaments throughout his career.

The Direction "BROTHERS IN BASS" -- True best friends are hard to come by in life. Especially the ones that stick with you for nearly a lifetime.

They have fished tournaments together for longer than their kids have been alive, and are “thick as thieves” so to speak. For the first time, Mark convinced Brian to come out and film a show with him, all the while catching a ton of crappie on their home lake of Taylorsville Lake. There is no telling how many fish these two have caught together, but one thing is for sure, they are sure to have a good time, anytime they step foot in the same boat.
