The first fishing boat former Bassmaster Elite Series angler and current TV fishing show personality Jarrett Edwards ever owned was a Lund. Twenty years and countless bruiser bass later, Edwards often fishes from that same Lund.
Perhaps by fate or fishing fortune, a new long-term promotional partnership between Edwards and the legendary boat builder now places him back behind the wheel of his favorite boat, fulltime.
After overcoming Lymphoma cancer at the height of his Bassmaster career, the popular Edwards turned in his tour card to pursue work as an angling promoter and TV fishing show host. Jarrett Edwards Outdoors (JEO) multimedia produces a progressive multi-species fishing program focusing on angling venues in the Western United States.
Airing 52 weeks per year on the World Fishing Network and 26 weeks per year on the Sportsman Channel, JEO TV boasts a loyal viewership. In addition to giving national TV viewers an up-close look at what Lund and Lund owners call ‘The Ultimate Fishing Experience,’ Edwards will tour the country – Lund in tow— over 30 days of consumer fishing shows across the USA.
“I’m super excited about our new long-term partnership with Lund Boats,” said Edwards. “I grew up honing my angling skills out of a Lund. It still looks and performs as great as the day I picked it up.”
Edwards adds, “When TV viewers and consumers see firsthand, the safety, quality and construction these boats provide, not to mention their unmatched ‘fishability,’ I think it’s going to open the eyes of a lot of anglers.
“The Lund 2010 Predator I’m running is an incredible fishing machine that’s simply more versatile than any other rig in the industry. There’s a reason that Lund remains the number one name in fishing boats, and we’re very proud to be a part of their family.”
