TESTRIDE with Buffalo Day’s “Fishing Klinic for Kids” in Buffalo, Minnesota


Buffalo Days are a fun part of summer tradition in Minnesota. This year, with the Fishing Klinic for Kids, families can enjoy a TESTRIDE event on Saturday, June 16th in Buffalo. The popular TESTRIDE program is a free event, and will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sturges Park. A professional angler will take participants out for a ride on Buffalo Lake, giving potential customers a chance to see for themselves all the benefits of an Evinrude-powered Ranger Boat.

A variety of models from the Fisherman series, Angler series, Z-series and Reatas will be available with various outboards from Evinrude. “TESTRIDE gives us a showcase for our multi-species big water boats as well as the bass boats from Ranger,” shared George Liddle, Ranger Boats rep and host of TESTRIDE. “Many buyers have compared features and benefits of different models, but we’re at the time of year now where we can get on the water for the ultimate test.”

Electronics from Humminbird and Minn Kota trolling motors as well as Talon shallow-anchoring systems, Dobyns rods and Rapala lures round out the product demonstrations. Attendees will receive special discounts from TESTRIDE’s online partner for guide-recommended outdoor gear—KrugerFarms.com. There’s something for everyone. Even prizes and goodies, like Rapala lures and TESTRIDE t-shirts for the first 50 riders. The event is co-sponsored by Rapid Marine of Rogers, Minn.

“TESTRIDE events provide Evinrude the opportunity to expose our engines to boating and fishing consumers,” shared Krista Heidgerken of Evinrude Outboards. “Customers can experience the power of an E-TEC and learn about reliability and superior design from the pro anglers that depend on them. In many cases that wins them over.”

“TESTRIDES are a great opportunity for us to get to know even more anglers interested in our products and welcome them to the Ranger family,” added Bart Schad, Ranger Vice President of Marketing.  “We’re committed to consistently delivering the ultimate ownership experience and these events help us show the real differences that make up so much of our legendary ride, handling and fishability features.”
