After twelve months of receiving online entries and showing the boat around the nation on the BASS Elite Tour, the winner of the Berkley Trilene Skeeter bass boat has been announced. Rick Loden, resident of Rockwood, Tenn., was named the recipient of the Berkley Trilene grand prize.
Randomly selected, Loden was lucky enough to be drawn and will be cruising this year in the Berkley Trilene fully rigged 2012 Skeeter ZX190, which is outfitted with a 150 horsepower Yamaha VMax HPDI outboard, electronics including a Minn Kota trolling motor and Lowrance sonar and Skeeter trailer.
Loden will be presented the keys to his brand new ride at the Morristown (Tenn.) Marine Boat Show and Open House on February 8th. The new Trilene boat owner will also receive a Berkley fishing tackle pack that includes: Trilene line, Berkley baits, Berkley tools and Berkley fishing rods and Abu Garcia reels.
The Open House is free to the public and will have B.A.S.S. Elite Series Berkley pro Brandon Palaniuk on site for photos and autographs. As an added bonus, Berkley will be on site giving out 500 spools of Trilene fishing line. Morristown Marine will be providing food and beverages for attendees.
“We are very happy to announce Rick as our winner,” said Chris Hockley – Berkley Brand Marketing Manager. “I can tell you that right now he is one of the most envied anglers on the water. The entire set up on this boat is sweet. Plus, he gets the Berkley tackle pack containing the same gear top professional angler’s utilize.”
