Bassmaster Elite Series pro angler Britt Myers knows a thing or two about bass fishing. And as a well-known builder of custom Toyota Tundras for his fellow anglers, he had an idea or two for a singular Tundra equipped with everything an Elite Series pro could imagine—and then some. The result is the “Ultimate Fishing Tundra,” scheduled to debut in Las Vegas on Oct. 30 at Toyota’s SEMA Show display booth.
Myers, who owns North Carolina-based CS Motorsports, then turned his team loose on a 2012 Tundra CrewMax. Toyota’s brawniest full-size pickup has towing and payload capacities that make short work of hauling a pro bass fishing boat and gear, so Myers turned the lion’s share of his attention on enhancing the bass fisherman’s life.
To enhance comfort and entertainment, the CS Motorsports crew replaced the rear bench with bucket seats and custom built a fiberglass console that stretches from the dash to the rear cab wall with built-in video monitors and subwoofers. Both front doors receive custom panels that will house extra speakers and video monitors to play fishing videos and display Navionics lake-mapping options.
Outside, the beefy Tundra gets a TRD Big Brake Kit and a 12-inch suspension lift—a little extra insurance against muddy bogs and steep lakeshore boat launches. A custom roof rack with special LED lighting and fishing rod storage will also be installed, along with a specially designed grille to set off the styling of this unique rig.
Leaving no lake un-fished, Myers’ team couldn’t resist adding a TRD supercharger and exhaust system. The added power and torque will help them haul out the extra load after a successful day of fishing.
