(Jan 10, 2017 - New Smyrana Beach, FL)
T-H Marine, a leading manufacturer of boat parts and marine accessories, has re-signed with the Cabela's National Walleye Tour (NWT) as an official sponsor for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The agreement was finalized as the NWT prepares for the upcoming season, scheduled to kick-off April 12 on Lake Erie.
"Many of our anglers use T-H Marine products so we are glad to have them continue with the NWT," said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. "T-H Marine products are high-quality, which is what our competitive anglers are looking for when customizing their rigs. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership."
T-H Marine has been serving the recreational boating industry since 1975. During those 42 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 U.S. and installed by more boat manufacturers and used by more professional fishermen than any other hydraulic jack plate on the market.
"The NWT is the perfect opportunity to highlight our boating products in a competitive atmosphere," said T-H Marine President and CEO Jeff Huntley. "The next two years will be a great run for both us and the NWT. We are looking forward to the start of the 2017 season in April."
As part of the sponsorship, T-H Marine will offer additional ways for NWT anglers to add to their earnings. For a minimal membership fee, anglers can register for the program directly with T-H Marine to be eligible for cash bonuses as the winner or high-finisher at NWT events.
The T-H Marine qualifying products are:
* AtlasTM Series Hydraulic Jack Plates
* AtlasTM Series Hydraulic Jack Plates
* Hot FootTM
* G-ForceTM Trolling Motor Handle
* Two-way Boat Alarm
* G-Force Eliminator
* KVD Kong and Dual Kong Mount
* Hydrowave H2
* Grand Slam Bonus
To be eligible for the Grand Slam Bonus ($500) the winning angler must have all 10 products installed. However, if the winner of the event is not an Atlas Awards member, the highest-finishing member within the top-10 will be awarded a $100 cash prize if they own the Atlas Hydraulic Jack Plate.
The National Walleye Tour includes 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.
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, Fox Sports Net North, Comcast Chicago and the World Fishing Network.
