T-H Marine, a leading manufacturer of boat parts and marine accessories, has joined the Cabela's National Walleye Tour (NWT) as an official sponsor for the 2015 season. The agreement was finalized as the NWT prepares for the upcoming season, scheduled to kick-off May 7 on the Mississippi River.
"We're fortunate to have the support of sponsors like T-H Marine," said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. "They're well known for building high-quality products designed specifically for competitive anglers. We're excited to have them on board and look forward to growing our partnership."
T-H Marine has been serving the recreational boating industry since 1975. During those 39 years, T-H Marine has been a true innovator and leader in designing and manufacturing the highest quality boat parts and accessories. T-H Marine has grown from a three-person company, manufacturing a few parts, to a 200-plus-employee conglomerate of three companies, manufacturing thousands of different products.
The new partnership will also highlight T-H Marine's Atlas jack plate and G-Juice live well treatment products. G-Juice, formerly known as U2 Pro Formula, was developed over 15 years of research and is a single-phase, full-functional water conditioner that removes chlorine, chloramines and ammonia from live wells and fish tanks while adding essential electrolytes and maintaining proper pH levels for fish care. The Atlas jack plate is made in the United States and installed by more boat manufacturers and used by more professional fishermen than any other hydraulic jack plate on the market.
"Partnering with the National Walleye Tour is a great opportunity to showcase our products to tournament anglers," said T-H Marine President and CEO Jeff Huntley. "We're excited to be involved and look forward to the upcoming season."
The National Walleye Tour will begin the 2015 season on May 7 at Lake City, Minnesota, and will include a total of three qualifying events, plus a year-end championship. Official registration for all events is already underway, both online and by phone. The NWT website offers numerous details on the circuit, including official rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives.
All 2015 NWT events feature 100% payback. A fully rigged Ranger Boat, plus cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event - a minimum total value of $61,000. Multiple contingency programs are available for even higher payout. Anglers that fish all three regular-season events, in addition to the top points leaders, will qualify for the three-day, entry-fee championship.
The Cabela's National Walleye Tour also includes unmatched television and media coverage, allowing a national audience to watch the action unfold from each event throughout the season. Airing on multiple networks, the NWT will be seen on the Pursuit Channel, NBC Sports Network and Fox Sports Net North.
