SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 9, 2023) – SPRO continues its support of college anglers for the 2023 season through a continuing partnership with the Association of Collegiate Anglers and the Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. Throughout the 2023 season, SPRO will receive extensive promotion of its wide range of baits through both digital and television promotion.  Students will also benefit from a discount purchase program that will provide college anglers with 35% off to stock up on professional grade baits and tackle to take their game to the next level.   This partnership also includes the 2023 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops to be held on Lake Hartwell in May.

“It is great to be a part of the ACA program again in 2023 and to continue working with college anglers. ACA provides college anglers great events thru the entire season and our line up of products can help college anglers in all seasons from top to bottom. Our discount program allows student anglers to get started utilizing our baits. We also look forward to meeting many of the anglers at the National Championship,” Syd Rives, Sales Manager.

From topwater frogs, to deep diving crankbaits, and everything in between, SPRO covers each level of the water column to help competitive collegiate anglers be successful on the water.  Over the past year, SPRO has continued to add to its extensive line of products with numerous new hardbaits and topwater frogs.

One of the newest additions to the SPRO family of baits is the Speed Demon.  This all-new crankbait is great to throw up shallow during the wintertime and early spring while burning down the bank.

The new SPRO Speed Demon crankbait lives up to its name! Its computer chip lip design creates a tight, hard action that generates an eye-catching flash and a distinct vibration that triggers a strike in hungry fish. The Speed Demon is the brainchild of professional angler Dean Rojas. He wanted a crankbait for aggressively fishing intermediate depths, and the ⅜ oz, 55 mm long Speed Demon excels in these conditions. As intended, a fast retrieve generates the hardest action and covers a lot of water – perfect for finding hungry fish.

Each Speed Demon 55 with Gamakatsu trebles is ready-to-fish right out of the package. SPRO’s new Speed Demon is a dynamite crankbait covering lots of water and triggering a bite with its hard and fast action! Competitive and recreational anglers alike need this lure in their tackle box arsenal.
