LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. — Bassmaster Elite Series pro and 2008 Bassmaster Classic champion Alton Jones has joined the national pro staff of Blue Water LED.
Jones has been using Blue Water lights for the past seven or eight years, and it was that experience that laid the foundation for the partnership.
“I’ve gotten to know the good folks at Blue Water pretty well over the last several years,” said Jones. “Sometimes, when you have a great personal relationship with someone, it can turn into a good business opportunity, and this is a perfect example. I look forward to really helping grow the Blue Water brand and to showing anglers all across the country how proper lighting can be a huge benefit to their fishing.”
Although the LED lighting certainly adds style and personality to his rig, Jones also thinks that the LEDs provide a critical role in his tournament preparation and efficiency.
“I spend long hours working on tackle, and trying to get that stuff done in the dark can strain eyes and take forever,” said Jones. “My LED rod locker and compartment lighting makes working in the dark as easy as doing it in broad daylight. I’ve also fallen in love with the Cyber Systems Light Bars I have installed on the rear of my truck. That thing really lights up a boat ramp, making it easier to load and unload my boat.”
Blue Water co-owners Jeff Hillard and Mike Daleo are thrilled about the addition of Jones.
“We feel extremely fortunate to have added Alton to the Blue Water team,” said Hillard. “He is a great human being in addition to being a great angler and spokesman for the sport. We are very excited to have him introducing our products to anglers everywhere and are confident that this is a relationship that will be very beneficial for everyone.”
