First Ever Bonus Bucks Owners Tournament was Very Successful
The first ever Toyota Trucks Bonus Bucks Owners Tournament was a celebration of shared passions among more than 160 anglers who fished in the event October 14th at Queen’s Landing on Lake Norman, NC.
Event organizers representing Toyota along with B.A.S.S. staff members greeted each participating team and presented them with free lures and line from Pradco and Berkley, a Carhartt sweatshirt, and a free special edition Bonus Bucks rod from Quantum before they ever made their first cast the next morning.
Bonus Bucks members who attended mixed and mingled with top Bassmaster Elite Series pros Casey Ashley, Mike Iaconelli, Britt Myers, Marty Robinson, Terry Scroggins, Gerald Swindle and Kevin VanDam, with whom many shared a dinner cruise the night before the tournament.
While fishing was tough, the hearts of those who participated were gracious and appreciative, and roughly one out of three teams won a paycheck. Other anglers towed home top prizes such as a free Minn Kota trolling motor, a fishing trip to El Salto, Mexico, a Yamaha generator, and hundreds of dollars worth of Bass Pro Shops gift cards.
We are very grateful for all those who attended, and are optimistic for even greater participation next year based on the special time experienced by all those who shared a wonderful October weekend with us this year.
