'Weigh-to-Win' payouts extended to include co-anglers

by D. Scott Croft on 1 Mar 2013
BoatUS has your back with on-the-water towing services and is expanding its "Weigh-to-Win" program to co-anglers in 2013 BoatUS Press Room
Now entering its third tournament season, BoatUS Angler's 'Weigh-to-Win' cash contingency program is becoming even more generous as it now includes payouts for co-anglers too in 2013.

Hundreds of tournament anglers have already signed up at BoatUSFishing.com for the bonus program the past two years and obviously, the inclusion of co-anglers in 'Weigh-to-Win' will further increase its popularity. For example, the highest finishing eligible BoatUS Angler co-angler in a Bassmaster Open, EverStart or PAA event will win $150 (a 'co-angler' is an amateur angler who fishes from the back of the professional angler's boat during a tournament.)

Although, in reality, winning cash as part of the 'Weigh-to-Win' program is truly just a bonus to the core benefit of becoming a member of BoatUS Angler. The greatest benefit is knowing that somebody has your back - as TV fishing show host, Mark Zona, likes to say.

When you sign-up for BoatUS Angler for $24, and add Unlimited 'Trailer Assist' On-The-Road Towing for $14, or Unlimited On-the-Water Freshwater Towing for $43, you have confidence knowing somebody will be there should you have a breakdown or find yourself stranded.

Whether you have a flat tire, run out of gas, burn up a trailer hub, have a dead cranking battery or have unexpected on-the-water issues, all tournament anglers have worried about or experienced these problems first hand. BoatUS Angler offers 24/7 dispatch of a tow truck or one of the dozens of TowBoatUS response boats stationed on the most popular bass fisheries. And unlike other roadside assistance companies, BoatUS Angler's Trailer Assist makes service for your boat's trailer, not just your tow vehicle, a top priority.

With a marine insurance program designed to fit the specific needs of anglers, such as per incident tackle replacement coverage up to $5,000, all tournament fishermen should call 866-532-1829 for a free insurance quote, and no B.A.S.S., FLW, PAA or LBAA competitor should enter the 2013 tournament season without being a member of BoatUS Angler.
