New Texas Bass Fishing Trail Continues to Grow

NORMAN, Okla. (March 21, 2012) — With nearly 300 participants in their first event, the new Texas Team Trail, presented by Cabela’s, recently added Lowrance® to a rapidly growing list of sponsors for the highly acclaimed, bass fishing tournament trail. Owned by Navico, Inc., and based in Tulsa, Okla., the Lowrance brand is a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high-quality SONAR and GPS mapping instruments. 

Lowrance joins a growing list of supporters with a commitment to become an official partner of the Texas Team Trail.  With large purses and incredible sponsor bonuses, the new Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela’s touts the highest team payouts in Texas.  After a wildly popular first event on Sam Rayburn Lake, anglers have quickly set their sights on Ray Roberts, as the second Texas Team Trail event is scheduled to kick off April 7, 2012. 

“The addition of Lowrance is a big step for the Texas Team Trail,” said Mike Hastings, Tournament Director.  “They continue to show incredible innovation when it comes to SONAR and GPS mapping gear, which is vital to a fisherman’s success on the water. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Lowrance.”

In 1957, Lowrance introduced the world's first sportfishing SONAR instruments capable of locating individual fish. And after five decades, Lowrance continues to set the standard for quality and technological innovation. In the last six months alone, recent industry-leading product launches include: HDS® Gen2 with StructureMap™ view, Broadband 4G Radar, StructureScan® HD sonar imaging, and the all-new Mark-4 and Elite-4 fishfinder/chartplotter series.

“Anglers who use Lowrance equipment know that the performance is unmatched,” said Lowrance Marketing Director, Gordon Sprouse. “Our partnership with the Texas Team Trail is another great opportunity to promote the continued success of the Lowrance products to a growing audience. We look forward to growing the relationship with the anglers and Texas Team Trail.”

The tournament circuit, designed exclusively for team competition, began March 10, 2012, and includes four qualifying events, plus a year-end championship. The Texas Team Trail website is accepting registrations. The website offers details about the circuit, including official rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives.

The circuit also includes unprecedented media coverage, not only within the Lone Star State but across the country as well. Airing on multiple major networks, the Texas Team Trail will be seen on The Texas Channel, World Fishing Network, Pursuit Channel and the new NBC Sports Network.
