San Antonio, TX (February 21, 2024) –   The Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) and Collegiate Bass Fishing Series are excited to announce that its long-standing relationship with Power-Pole will continue for the 19th consecutive year.

“Collegiate Bass anglers serve as pivotal contributors in shaping the landscape of professional bass fishing. Power-Pole is honored to maintain its sponsorship for the 19th consecutive year, expressing anticipation for the prospects that the highly competitive sport holds,” said Curt Hill, Head of Marketing at Power-Pole, the original shallow water anchor.

 “Power-Pole is a company that has partnered with the ACA since the very beginning.  Over the course of the past 19 years, Power-Pole’s support of the next generation of anglers has not wavered,” said Wade Middleton, President of CarecoTV and Director of Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. “From attending ACA events to providing prizes and offering an awesome rebate program for the anglers, Power-Pole is constantly helping to support these anglers in their pursuit of making it to the next level. Their support also extends to showing up on-site at events, including the Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops.”

Power-Pole offers a variety of products including shallow water anchors, a brushless trolling motor, and the Power-Pole CHARGE, which are crucial tools for anglers competing in bass fishing tournaments.  Whether it be for total boat control or to keep you charged up and ready to get back to weigh-in on time, Power-Pole products are a key part of every angler’s gameplan.

The CHARGE Marine Power Manager is an advanced onboard smart charger that does the work of four devices. It’s a traditional battery charger, a charge-on-the-run, a bi-directional power manager, and an emergency start system — all in one compact unit.

The CHARGE works with multiple battery configurations and battery types, including high-performance lithium. CHARGE prioritizes your charging needs in real-time with the Power-Pole app or compatible MFD. CHARGE gives you more time out on the water with all the confidence and reliability you need to focus more on landing fish and less on your battery backup plan.

A new addition was made to Power-Pole’s product line-up last year with the launch of the MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor.  The Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor is constructed of the same premium materials and innovations that have made Power-Pole the industry standard Shallow Water Anchors.  The technology used in their Next-Gen Brushless Motor and STEALTH STEERING DRIVE is key to the power production, and the operational reliability of the motor.

Power-Pole will again be supporting anglers at ACA events throughout the 2024 season, including at the Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops. Power-Pole anchors will be included in the prize payouts at every major ACA event, as well as the Big Bass honors at various events.

Along with the tournament sponsorship and rebate programs for collegiate anglers, all ACA events will qualify for the Power-Pole Captains Cash Reward Club. Captains Cash members with registered Power-Pole products who finish first place overall in sanctioned tournaments will receive up to $1,000 in cash in addition to the individual event purse provided by the event’s organizer.
