TULSA, Okla. – Major League Fishing President and CEO Jim Wilburn issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Ray Scott:

“Ray Scott will forever be remembered as one of the greatest visionaries and contributors in the history of the sport of bass fishing. His efforts have made an extraordinarily positive impact on so many outdoorsmen and women, across the world. He launched groundbreaking marketing and media partnerships, membership platforms and conservation programs that have brought the sport into the national spotlight. His iconic legacy will endure through his family and continue to inspire generations to come. 

“Every staff member, angler, and fan of the MLF family is the beneficiary of Ray’s vision, generosity and inspiration. Our deepest condolences go out to Ray’s wife Hope Susan; their children Wilson Scott III (“Big Wilson”), Steven, Jennifer and Wilson Freeman Scott (“Little Wilson”); and their extended family. We share our grief with everyone whose life in our great sport was touched by him.”
