San Clemente, Calif. – January 1, 2024 –– In addition to the partnership with Bassmaster, WON Bass, a division of Western Outdoor News announces a new prize boat partnership for the 2024 WON Bass Western Opens Series of events, and a new partner for the WON Bass Angler of the Year prize.
In 2024 the WON Bass Western Opens Series will include five Pro-Am style events that will be held in California, Nevada and Arizona. Thanks to Bass Pro Shops, Ranger Boats and Mercury Marine, each WON Bass event will feature a Ranger / Mercury prize boat for the pro winner.
The partnership with Bass Pro Shops and Ranger Boats signals their strong commitment to the region and the anglers who make up The West. It provides seamless continuity between the WON Bass Customer base and one of the largest dealer networks made up of Bass Pro Shops locations and Ranger Boats Independent Dealers as well.
Along with the support factor, the new partnership directly improves earnings potential for the competitors through the contingency programs offered by Ranger Boats. WON Bass will now feature the Ranger Cup program as well as Nitro Rewards and Triton Gold.
Along with the news of Bass Pro Shops and Ranger Boats, longtime WON Bass partner, and of bass fishing in general, Bridgford Foods has renewed for their “Bridgford in the Boat” promotion for all of the 2024 WON Bass Opens Series events, but they have also agreed to provide a $10,000 prize to the 2024 WON Bass Pro Angler of the Year.
“We are excited to announce our multi-year partnership with Bass Pro Shops and White River Marine, the Ranger Boats / Mercury prize boats will be welcomed by the field and provide our anglers with more value, as well as more service availability,” said WON Bass tournament director Billy Egan. “We are also very happy to renew and extend our partnership with Bridgford Foods, they are a great partner and care about the industry and its anglers.
“These great companies are among the best in their industries and WON Bass is grateful for their partnerships.”
