TULSA, Okla. – This past weekend was the pilot-premiere of the MLF General Tire Team Invitational, shot back in mid-December on Florida’s Garcia Reservoir. This special event happened after the conclusion of the 2022 Summit Cup, which will premiere on Outdoor Channel on Saturday, May 21 at 2 p.m. ET.

The General Tire Team Invitational features nine MLF Cup anglers, including REDCREST 2022 Champion Bobby Lane, competing as three, three-man teams.

Team Ferguson:

  • Edwin Evers of Talala, Okla. (Team Captain)
  • Bobby Lane of Lakeland, Fla.
  • Chris Lane of Guntersville, Ala.

Team Sqwincher:

  • Brent Ehrler of Redlands, Calif.
  • Michael Neal of Dayton, Tenn.
  • Skeet Reese of Auburn, Calif. (Team Captain)

Team Lucas Oil:

  • Andy Montgomery of Blacksburg, S.C.
  • Mark Rose of Wynne, Ark. (Team Captain)
  • Bryan Thrift of Shelby, N.C.

The anglers on each team wear headsets that have them in constant communication with their teammates. This concept allows each team to work together and strategize in real-time on the water; shifting baits, techniques, patterns or areas as needed and creating a new type of excitement and drama.
