San Antonio, TX (February 13, 2023) –   The Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series and the Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) is excited to announce that its long-standing relationship with Power-Pole will continue for the 18th year.

“Collegiate Bass anglers hold the key to the door of professional bass fishing. Power-Pole is proud to be a continued sponsor for the 18th year and is excited to see what 2023 has in store on this highly competitive series,” said Curt Hill, Advertising Manager for Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors, which is based in Tampa, Florida.

“Anglers competing in the college ranks represent the next generation of fishing and Power-Pole has been a partner in supporting collegiate fishing since it started.   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 whether it’s showing up at events to support them, providing new products or supporting them with programs,” said Wade Middleton, President of CarecoTV and Director of Collegiate Bass Fishing Series.

Power-Pole products ranging from shallow water anchors to the Power-Pole Charge are crucial tools for anglers competing in bass fishing tournaments.  Whether it be for boat control purposes or to recharge batteries to help you get back to weigh-in on time, Power-Pole products are a key part of each angler’s gameplan.

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

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