 WON Bass Anglers Benefit Big Time From New Sponsorship
Springfield, MO - WON Bass stands strong in the Western states long after other trails have come and gone. With the addition of sponsorship support from NITRO Boats, Bass Pro Shops, NITRO Boats and Mercury Marine, WON Bass has joined forces with the biggest names in the industry to provide western-based bass anglers opportunities of unprecedented proportions in 2008.
            The new NITRO Tournament Rewards contingency program promises to put more cash in the hands of WON Bass anglers. It’s brand new for 2008 and is sure to be one of the most lucrative incentive programs in fishing. WON Bass anglers who find their way to the fish running a NITRO boat will significantly elevate their earning potential and all WON Bass competitor’s will have a chance to win one of six Z-Series NITRO Boats to be awarded next season.
            Plus, by partnering with Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Marine, WON Bass is now an official participating division of the Bass Pro Shops Fishing Tour. The Bass Pro Fishing Tour is a multifaceted new initiative of Bass Pro Shops, NITRO and TRACKER Boats which will provide opportunities for anglers of all skill levels to compete in a variety of venues from coast to coast. The WON Bass sponsorship and the new NITRO Tournament Rewards are the first of several elements which will be announced this season.
            Andy Benson, National Field Promotions Manager for Tracker Marine Group sums it up best, “NITRO and Bass Pro Shops feel that we have created the ultimate program to offer avid anglers in the Western United States more places to participate, and also the chance to earn more in the form of contingency money than ever before.”
            Details of each program, as well as product information for the Mercury powered NITRO Z-Series of high performance tournament boats that living legends Rick Clunn and Kevin VanDam depend on, can be found at
            But before you start clicking, be warned the Z-9 is 21-feet of the finest bass boat ever built. Boasting unmatched overall fishing performance as well as superior ride and handling, the Z-9 is the ultimate big-water tournament boat. An anti-fatigue padded front deck will keep the backs and legs of young guns and ‘ole sticks alike feeling fresh and ready to compete all day long. And a 300 hp maximum rating and 65-gallon fuel capacity is sure to get you there and back in style whether you’re winding through the Delta’s infinite backwaters or soaring across wide-open Lake Mead. 
            Simply said, the best anglers in the world run a NITRO, and now WON Bass participants have plenty of good reasons to run one too.
