Brea, CA - Meet Brandon Card, professional angler, Bassmaster 2012 Rookie of the Year and a top contender in this year’s Bassmaster Classic. He’s got a new boat, a new motor, and a new sponsor – Suzuki.
Brandon’s Triton 21HP will be powered by Suzuki’s DF250SS, a 250 horsepower 4-stroke outboard that’s built for speed – and reliability. This 4.0-liter V6 features dual overhead cams, 24-valves and a tuned intake track. Electronic fuel injection provides optimum power and fuel economy, and a sleek lower unit with a 2.08:1 gear ratio slices through the water like a hot knife through butter.
Whether he’s got to make a long run to find fish, or power out of the hole when it’s time to make a move, Brandon will be able to count on his Suzuki to get him to the fish – and to get him back home for the weigh-in. And he knows his Suzuki will deliver.
Brandon remembers going fishing with his dad when he was just 4 years old. Their 14’ foot aluminum fishing boat was just perfect for a kid – and the fact that it was powered by a 20-horse Suzuki seemed like a natural fit.
That first experience with Suzuki years ago gave Brandon a connection with the brand – and once he started checking out their outboards, he was impressed. “The 250SS is a sweet outboard,” said Brandon. “I’ll be the first angler on the Elite circuit
to run a Suzuki and I couldn’t be prouder. And Suzuki’s commitment to me is just as strong,” he added.
“I’m out to make my mark,” said Brandon. “I’ve got a lot of respect for every angler on the tour, but I need to do this my way,” Brandon added. “I can’t wait to roll into the weigh-in with my new rig, powered by Suzuki.”
