Mark Rose of West Memphis has joined the Wal-Mart fishing team for the 2013 FLW Tour season. Rose will replace George Cochran of Hot Springs, who retired this year after 32 years as a professional fisherman. “I have so much respect and admiration for what George has accomplished and his longevity in our sport,” said Rose, who has earned more than $1.6 million dollars in winnings over his 14-year career on the FLW Tour.
