Veteran professional angler John Crews of Virginia has signed a sponsorship agreement with Bass Minder, a fishing products company based in Birmingham, Ala., to promote its Line Selection Reminder Stickers.
Crews, an 11-year veteran, competes on the Bassmaster Elite Series and Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series. Crews has qualified for the Bassmaster Classic six times and won the 2010 Elite Series season-opening tournament in California.
With attention to detail and organization, Crews knows the importance of using the proper tackle. He also designs his own lures, which contributes to his success on the professional tours. When Crews saw the Bass Minder product, he said it was a no-brainer.
“For more than 10 years, I have been using small stickers on my rods or reels to mark what line it is and what date I replaced it,” he said. “I have struggled to find the right product until now. The Bass Minder Line Selection Reminder Stickers are a must for all anglers, and the other Bass Minder products are great references for anglers to consult.”
Line Selection Reminder Stickers work for freshwater or saltwater and eliminate the wonder about how long the line has been on a reel. Simply use a permanent marker to fill in the pound-test and date, put it on your rod or reel and that’s it. When you pick up a rod, you’ll know exactly when the line was last replaced.
Bass Minder products can be purchased at Bass Pro Shops, participating Wal-Mart locations and on the Bass Minder website at www.bassminder.com.
