San Antonio, TX (January 23, 2023) – The Association of Collegiate Anglers is excited to announce that Big Bite Baits will continue its long-time support of collegiate anglers and the Collegiate Bass Fishing Series for the 2023 season. This extended partnership will include the continuation of Big Bite Baits’ collegiate discount program and prize support of ACA major events across the nation to include the BoatUS National Championship in May on Lake Hartwell.

“We look forward to another great year working with student anglers in 2023. Their passion for angling is contagious and we love supporting them with our ACA program. We have seen former college anglers like Drew Cook start using our products thru the ACA college program and continue all the way to winning on the Elite Series and becoming part of our pro angler team.  Our program gives student anglers the opportunity to use all our products at affordable prices,” Brandon Ray, Promotions Manager at Big Bite Baits.

Big Bite Baits offers a 50% discount on products to college anglers. Complete details of the collegiate discount and bonus programs can be found on our website at the Discounts and Incentives page or by emailing [email protected].

New in 2022, Big Bite Baits launched its exclusive Scentsation line of soft plastics. Scentsation was developed after numerous requests from the Big Bite pro angler team and consumers for a soft and buoyant soft plastic that was infused with a powerful, fish attracting scent that would be more effective for wary fish with greater scent susceptibility.

The Big Bite production team initially began working with a 30-year PhD chemist for months to develop this proprietary formula with greater fish attraction. In a collaboration, this plastic formula was developed after multiple rounds of testing for fish attraction and manufacturing capabilities.
