(Apr 27, 2018 - San Antonio, TX) Cabela's has long been a supporter of college fishing. Last spring, Cabela's once again increased its commitment to collegiate anglers with a new
discount purchase program as well as an angler contingency program -TeamCabela's.   This contingency program was first seen in action at the 2017 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Cabela's. In 2018, the discount and contingency programs havebeen active throughout the year with numerous college anglers taking advantage of the program to shop at Cabela's stores as well as be rewarded for top finishes.
The Cabela's Angler Contingency Program, Team Cabela's, was created for teams and anglers to qualify for additional prizes based on their #TeamCabelas social media promotion and finishes in the Top 10 at Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series events, including the Texas Lunker Challenge presented by Mossy Oak Elements, the Cabela's Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley, All active collegiate anglers competing in the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series events were eligible, however, only 100 anglers were chosen by Cabela's and the Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) to be on Team Cabela's.   

"Team Cabela's offers the collegiate anglers the opportunity to start looking towards the next step in their fishing careers," said Lara Herboldsheimer, Brand Partnership Program Manager for Cabela's.  "By making some noise on their social channels and fishing well, they have the opportunity to become a part of the Team Cabela's roster representing the brand and the lifestyle.
