The Association of Collegiate Anglers has announced that  Bass Mafia, a lifestyle apparel brand and makers of the Bait Coffin, will join the 2013 Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series as a sponsor.  Bass Mafia, a division of Mafia Outdoors, is focused on hardcore gear for hardcore sportsmen. Their product line includes apparel, tackle storage, as well as an expanding line of accessories.

According to Bass Mafia founder, Bart Langley, “Our growing line of products is, and will continue to be, geared towards the serious angler and we love what we are seeing from the collegiate anglers across the country.  Like Bass Mafia, these young men and women are hardcore and we’re excited to start building a relationship with them now.  We certainly look forward to growing together in the coming years.”

Danny Blandford, Program Director for the Association of Collegiate Anglers, added, “We’d like to welcome Bass Mafia to our growing list of partners who see the value in supporting collegiate anglers.  Students will have an opportunity to save money on the world’s toughest tackle box, the Bait Coffin, among other products via our Discount and Incentives Program.”

The Bait Coffin, and the all-new Bait Coffin Deep Series, are the last tackle boxes a collegiate angler will ever need.  Designed to withstand the harshest of environments, the boxes are tough enough to run over with the truck, feature a waterproof seal, and reinforced latches that can even accommodate a lock.  Torture tested by the likes of Bassmaster Elite Series Pros Greg Hackney, Stephen Browning, and Jeremy Starks, the Bait Coffins are nearly indestructible.

“Bass Mafia will also be sponsoring a luncheon for the anglers in the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship, as well as supporting a variety of other ACA promotions this year, so our Facebook fans and event participants are in for some great prizes,” added Blandford.

Bass Mafia products are currently available at, where collegiate anglers can purchase directly from Bass Mafia and receive a “Family” discount.
