Brazier is also a
veteran tournament angler with 20+ years experience. He gained recognition in
the early years as the engineer that could tweak a boat to its fastest speed.
He was surrounded by some of the fastest people in the world on water such as
Jerry Jaco and Darrus Allison. When B.A.S.S. introduced the WFC- World
Championship Fishing- of course, Ray was among those chosen. In the first event,
anglers fished the first half of the day and then with the same boat, ran a
slalom course, with the fastest time around the course winning the event. That
first WFC paid $200,000! From that Ray went on to work with Earl Bentz and his
team of seven Triton Pro Staffers and was eventually hired by Honda as a
performance engineer. He has worked with propeller companies and other
performance related industries all over the US because of his skills that are
in such high demand.
In 2013 he will be fishing the B.A.S.S. Opens in the Northern, Southern, Central and
Western divisions. He is a 4 time top 10 finisher.
