Garmin International Inc. signed a three-year deal to become a sponsor of the Bassmaster Tournament Trail.
“Garmin is proud to be a supporting sponsor of B.A.S.S. and further strengthen our continued relationship with this iconic fishing brand,” said Dave Dunn, Garmin director of marine sales. “We are deeply committed to the freshwater fishing industry, and the Bassmaster Tournament Trail is a great place for us to showcase our award-winning products and technologies to anglers of all ages and skill levels.”
Garmin will be a supporting sponsor for the Bassmaster Elite Series, Basspro.com Bassmaster Opens Series, Carhartt Bassmaster College Series presented by Bass Pro Shops, Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster High School Series presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors, Bassmaster Team Championship, and the grass-roots TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation regional and championship tournaments.
“B.A.S.S. fans and anglers are not only enthusiastic about fishing and boating, they genuinely enjoy spending time outdoors,” said Bruce Akin, B.A.S.S. CEO. “That makes Garmin a natural fit to team with our tournament series to reach an audience that is passionate about living an active lifestyle.”
The relationship between Garmin and B.A.S.S. is already strong with 18 members of the Garmin national pro team competing on the 2020 Bassmaster Elite Series ranging from veteran anglers Todd Auten and Clark Wendlandt to newcomer Bryan Schmitt.
