Fishing and flat fixing

Pro bass angler Matt Lee got his fish while BoatUS Angler took care of his flat tire BoatUS ANGLER http://www.BoatUSAngler.com
There is a BoatUS Angler 'Weigh-to-Win' decal on the gunnel of Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Champion Matt Lee's bass boat. He believes in the goodness of the association that makes it their mission every day to take care of anglers and boaters in need. And a couple of months ago, Matt Lee became an angler in need.

He was 500 miles from his college town of Auburn, Alabama, about to launch to pre-fish Louisiana's Red River, when he discovered his trailer tire was softer than a pack of plastic worms long forgotten in the sun. So, Matt did what any intelligent senior engineering major would do. He made good use of his resources, and dialed the toll-free number on his BoatUS Angler membership card.

'I called BoatUS Angler from the boat ramp, and the people that answered my call were super nice and began to dispatch assistance immediately,' said Matt. 'Within minutes, while I was still in the boat ramp parking lot tying on lures, Mericle's Towing Service from Shreveport showed up to help me.'

'They told me to launch my Triton and go fishing, that they'd fix the flat tire and leave the paperwork under my windshield wiper. I was sort of amazed at that level of service they were promising, but that's exactly what they did,' said Matt. 'Sure enough, I got back in from a long day of fishing, the tire was fixed, and all the needed paperwork was tucked under my windshield wiper.'

As a member of BoatUS Angler, Matt is also eligible to win cash bonuses as part of the 'Weigh-to-Win' program when he does well in his tournaments.

'For the cost of a BoatUS Angler membership, and given the miles I put on my Tacoma and Triton, being able to call those folks if anything goes wrong is more than worth the thirty-eight bucks a year to sign-up,' concluded Lee.

Getting a BoatUS Angler membership with on water or on road towing and signing-up for their Weigh-to-Win program like Matt did, is easy. Memberships are as affordable as $38. Just dial 918-742-6424 and ask for Kendell. For complete details regarding Towing Services, call BoatUS Angler membership at 866-906-0013, or visit BoatUS Towing.
