Premier boating brands entice anglers to ‘get paid EVEN MORE to fish’ by participating in the largest incentivized tournament roster

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (January 24, 2023) – Nitro, Ranger and Triton brands are proud to announce today its new fishing tournament contingency program, elevating the stakes of the grassroots tournaments with the largest payout currently in the market.

Newly established for 2023, the brands will reward a $50,000 cash bonus to the Bassmaster Opens “Angler of the Year” and MLF Toyota Series champion if the anglers meet the program’s qualifications. Nitro, Ranger and Triton will also offer an $8,000 cash bonus on top of tournament earnings for more than 250 approved tournaments – the most tournaments of any program!

“These new programs are great news for tournament anglers!” 4-time Bassmaster Classic winner and 3-time Major League Fishing Cup champion Kevin VanDam said. “They’re the best contingency programs currently on the market with more eligible tournaments, higher payouts, and free to enter. They’re paying you to win!”

To qualify for these bigger-than-ever cash bonus prizes, winning anglers are required to fish in a Triton, Ranger or Nitro boat that is 4 years old or newer. These contingency programs are free, meaning no entry fee is required to participate, and there is no cap on the number of winnings an angler can achieve.

Parent-company Bass Pro Shops and its boat brands have a long-standing history of supporting and incentivizing amateur anglers to continue to elevate the sport of fishing. In 2021, Bass Pro Shops held an amateur series tournament, the US Open National Bass Fishing Amateur Team Championships, exclusive to its boat owners with a payout of more than $4.6 million in cash and prizes.
