The Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) announces that Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) has renewed its title sponsorship of the 2018 Collegiate Bass Fishing Series Championship. Now in its thirteenth anniversary year, the event will be held May 23-25 on Pickwick Lake in Florence, Alabama. The Championship is the third major ACA event of four tournaments in the rapidly expanding Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series slated for this year. BoatUS has been the title sponsor of the Championship since its inception.

Starting with the first Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship held on Lake Lewisville in 2006, student anglers have benefitted, both on the water and off, from the relationship with BoatUS. A decade later, collegiate anglers continue to be able to tap into BoatUS’ 24/7 on water towing and roadside assistance services, information, and more at each Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series event.

Wade Middleton, President of CarecoTV and Director of the Association of Collegiate Anglers, said, “Since first becoming involved in college fishing, BoatUS has provided so much over the past decade from education on safety issues and boating issues, offering important services like insurance, towing and more as well a wide range of services both on and off the water to help ensure this next generation of anglers are prepared to safely and properly enjoy the waters across the nation.”
