Edwin Evers giving away winning rod and reel

Fans who watched the Day Two weigh-in of the Bassmaster Elite Series Alabama Charge at Pickwick Lake might have heard Edwin Evers make an onstage offer that's hard to imagine.

Edwin offered anybody with access to the internet the chance to own the actual rod, reel, line and lure he won the $100,000 St. Johns River Bassmaster Elite event with a few weeks ago. No purchase necessary.

Can you imagine Buster Posey giving away the mitt he used to catch the final strike in the World Series? Or Mickelson giving away his putter right after he put on the green jacket at Augusta?

Well, Edwin is.

Evers is giving away the Bass Pro Shops rod and reel he made the final cast with en route to winning his sixth B.A.S.S. tournament. The line, Yum Money Craw lure and worm weight are still tied to the combo, just like he stowed it in his rod locker when he drove his Tundra away victoriously from central Florida.

No strings attached. All you have to do is visit the "contest" section at www.EdwinEvers.com throughout the month of April. Sign-up, sit back and hope Edwin randomly draws your name on May 1. The retail value of the give-away is roughly $225 — but the sentimental value just might be tougher to hook than the 8-pound bass that anchored Evers' winning catch on this combo.

Visit www.EdwinEvers.com often. Evers already has more giveaways planned for future months.
