Fishing Profile

Dean Silvester, commonly referred to as Hollywood by most Queenslanders, I live on the Gold Coast QLD Australia, I work full time as a Social media Manager for the largest tackle store in the world. (MoTackle) 2019 marks my 14th year of competitive angling, my tournament career consists of 28 Wins, 4 Championship Titles and 4 (AOY) Angler of the Year Titles.

I am the only angler to win Professional BASS Tournaments across all three Australian Eastern states, as well as the only angler to win a BASS Nation AOY title and BASS Championship in the same year. We were the only team to ever go back to back on the B.A.S.S Nation Teams Championship. I was ranked No.1 in Australia from 2013-17 inclusive (retired in 2018 in Aus.) and the only Angler who has won across all three-tournament species at the Pro level in Australia (Bass, Bream and Barramundi). My overall record includes a further 33 top five places and 27 top ten places. (not inclusive).

My goal now is to take on the US BASS circuit and eventually qualify to compete in the BASSMASTER ELITE SERIES! I finished 2nd in a Bassmaster Open on Lake Oneida last year and top 20 In the AOY points in my first ever season over there.
