When not competing on the water, Rob finds himself working on old fishing reels and thinking of ways to improve his efficiency. Rob is sponsored by: Eberlins Boats & Motors, Champion Boats, Gene Larew plastics, and Performance Propellers in St Charles Missouri.
Personal Note from Rob Smegner:
"Working as a pro-staff member for MAO is a very gratifying experience. I frequently get an opportunity to speak with fisherman from all over the Midwest. MAO's website is an excellent resource for up-to-date fishing information, as well as historical data that can prove extremely valuable for locating fish from one season to the next. I frequently refer to the MAO archives when planning for an event, without it I would be wasting valuable time in search for a repeatable pattern."
