NEW ORLEANS -- The patients at Tulane Hospital for Children received a special surprise this Valentine's Day when they were visited by celebrity anglers Kevin VanDam, Aaron Martens, Brian LaClair, Ryan Said Shaw Grigsby, Stephen Browning and Edwin Evers.
Alton Jones' title of Bassmaster Classic Champion was only moments old when the folks from Toyota added an extra $7,500 to his half-a-million-dollar day. Six weeks prior to the Classic, Alton purchased a Toyota Sequoia, and quickly sent in his registration to be eligible for the brand new Toyota Trucks Bonus Bucks contingency program. Confident, yet humble, it's doubtful Alton was counting on getting his first bonus check as a result of winning the Bassmaster Classic, but as the highest placing registered Tundra or Sequoia owner in a Classic field, that's exactly what happened.
BASS pro, Randy Howell's passion for his sport pays off in Bonus Bucks.
Beginning in 2011,Randy Howell will prominently display the King's Home logo.

Whether you fish at the Elite Series level or just for weekend enjoyment, maximizing your success on the water depends on the ability to wring every last ounce of fish out of a given area. Even if you've found the ultimate school, no one wants to leave any fish behind.
