New fish-finding tool free for Nation and collegiate anglers

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — B.A.S.S. and BassGold announced today that BassGold will provide its bass patterning app free for one year to members of the B.A.S.S. Nation, including Carhartt Bassmaster College Series anglers.

“We are very excited to provide BassGold free to our members,” said B.A.S.S. Nation Director Don Corkran. “It’s an amazing tool that will help every fisherman — from beginner to expert — get on fish faster. It will also give them more confidence on the water by knowing what has worked and will work where they’re fishing.

“We’re also excited that BassGold is seeking our members’ feedback in this pilot program. Nation members are the most dedicated bass anglers on the planet, so it makes sense that they will have input on what I believe is a terrific digital bass fishing tool.”

“BassGold has proved itself in tournaments from the Bassmaster Classic to local events, so we know it works,” said Hank Weldon, tournament manager for the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series. “It’s definitely a tool collegiate anglers will benefit from, and it’s great that we are able to save them the cost of subscribing.”

With a database of thousands of fishing patterns from bass tournaments over the years, the program provides fishing recommendations (where, how and with what) for any body of water in the United States.

BassGold — a Web-based app that runs on any Web-connected device — has predicted with remarkable accuracy the winning patterns and weights for recent Bassmaster Classics, Bassmaster Elite Series events and many other tournaments. It also has helped anglers catch more fish quickly on fun-fishing days as well.

“It’s a wonderful thing to help bass anglers get on fish faster and hopefully catch more fish, too,” said BassGold CEO Jay Kumar. “BassGold’s new improvements make it even more powerful, and we’re happy to provide it free to B.A.S.S. Nation and B.A.S.S. collegiate anglers through this pilot program. It’s great to see this partnership with B.A.S.S. continue to develop.”

To get the code to redeem, contact your state president if you're a B.A.S.S. Nation member or Hank Weldon,, if you're a College B.A.S.S. angler.
