MotorGuide signs on as Fed Nation sponsor

CELEBRATION, Fla. — MotorGuide and B.A.S.S. LLC, the worldwide authority on bass fishing, have announced that MotorGuide has become a Supporting-level Sponsor of the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation.

MotorGuide is pleased to have such a long history with B.A.S.S. and the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation, and we look forward to our ongoing relationship,” said David Walsh, marketing manager of MotorGuide.

MotorGuide has a reputation for providing powerful trolling motors for the sport's finest anglers. The company has, for many years, proudly supported premier fishing events throughout the country and is committed to the growth of the sport, including the many anglers who don’t fish for a living.

It’s no secret that the company proudly supports those who do fish for a living, however. Six Bassmaster Elite Series pros sponsored by MotorGuide have taken home first-place trophies from different B.A.S.S. events so far this season.

“We take great pride in the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation, and we’re excited about MotorGuide coming on board to support this program,” said Jerry McKinnis, one of three owners of B.A.S.S. “Partnerships with respected brands like MotorGuide help to keep B.A.S.S. and its anglers at the top of their game.”

As part of the agreement, MotorGuide receives exhibit space at B.A.S.S. Federation Nation events and opportunity for product demonstration, and participation in the B.A.S.S. Member Benefit Program.

Additionally, MotorGuide will receive exposure across B.A.S.S.’s multimedia properties, including Bassmaster Magazine, BASS Times and, and in its advertising, promotional and marketing materials for the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation.

Next up for the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation is the Central Divisional taking place on Table Rock Lake out of Kimberling City, Mo., June 8-10.
