Phoenix, AZ (November 25, 2019) – Today Wild West Bass Trail announced its partnership with Fitzgerald Fishing. Founded in 2010, Fitzgerald Rods began its journey into the fishing industry and quickly became the brand of choice for all heavy duty and power fishing applications across the U.S. Since then Fitzgerald Fishing has expanded its lineup across the waters of fresh, tidal, flats, rivers, and oceans. Fitzgerald Fishing has further developed its original series of products around professional anglers, most noticeably Bryan Thrift.
Owner, partners, and BASS Open Champions, Trevor Fitzgerald, and Rich Howes note, “Fitzgerald Fishing prides itself on building superior equipment through lengthy R&D, and our pro-staff input. A signature rod as well as the entire series has had countless hours of refinement prior to hitting the market. Just like our products, we have recognized Wild West Bass Trail refining and building their platform of tournament fishing in the West. As a Florida based company across the U.S., we hear and see the growth of The Wild West Bass Trail, and we knew it would be a great opportunity for both companies to work together. Having grown sales steadily throughout the U.S., and with the west coast showing and gaining momentum the last few years, we are thrilled to be a supporting partner of Wild West Bass Trail knowing that the next few years will be monumental for both companies.”
Jeremy DeHart, Owner and Operations Manager of The Wild West Bass Trail notes, “I am humbled to have a reputable company such as Fitzgerald Fishing want to partner with us. The Fitzgerald Fishing brand is endorsed and used by several top fishermen around the country. To have the opportunity to work with such a partner is exciting. I can’t wait to share the incredible cash contingency program with our anglers. It will be the first time that a partner will recognize some of our AOY winners! Fitzgerald Fishing has a large retail platform of rods, reels, fishing line, tackle, as well as several tools, accessories, and apparel that all of our anglers can benefit from. Many of the Fitzgerald Fishing products will be available at local retailers across the west, as well as favorite online e-tailers.”
Fitzgerald Fishing will be supporting the entire Tour, Opens, Teams, and Kayak series of events for Wild West Bass Trail. Jeremy DeHart states, “we are proud to have Fitzgerald Fishing join leading industry companies that support WWBT such as Lucas Oil, Super Clean, Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Power-Pole, General Tire and many others.”
