CULLMAN, Ala. — Bassmaster Elite Series pro Kevin Hawk has signed with Cullman County Parks and Recreation to promote tourism and fishing in Cullman County and Smith Lake.
“This is the largest promotion that Cullman County Parks and Recreation has ever done with promoting tourism to Cullman County and our parks,” said Doug Davenport, Cullman County Parks and Recreation director.
“As fishing gains more followers from the professional, college and high school levels, along with the amateur fishing that takes place on Smith Lake, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to join with Kevin Hawk in promoting our area,” continued Davenport.
“We’re very proud that we have a partnership with Kevin Hawk, to take our parks to the next level. As the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame Museum comes to Cullman, and with more fishing tournaments taking place on Smith Lake, we know we made the right decision for this new venture.”
“I live close to Smith Lake Park and love fishing and spending time with friends in Cullman as often as I can,” said Hawk. “Doug and his staff are passionate about building Smith Lake Park’s popularity and attracting anglers from all over the country.
“I’m looking forward to representing Cullman County and Smith Lake Park and helping bring more anglers to Smith Lake Park.”
