Berkley Pros Give Tank Demonstrations Throughout the Bassmaster Classic

COLUMBIA, S.C. (FEBRUARY 16, 2012) – Bassmaster Classic Expo attendees have a chance to meet the best bass fishing anglers at the Berkley booth February 24th – 26th. Many of the pros will be signing autographs and giving bait and technique specific demonstrations on the Berkley Bass Tank, featuring the newest rods, reels, line and baits.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to meet angling heroes and learn their tricks of the trade,” said Andrew Marks, Berkley Marketing Director. “At any time during the Classic Expo, consumers can stop by to see anglers doing seminars about their favorite techniques and our new products on display.”

Anglers that will be on hand throughout the Classic Expo include: Guy Eaker, Skeet Reese, Scott Suggs, J Todd Tucker, Paul Elias, Hank Parker, Gary Klein, Patrick Sebile, Jay Yelas, James Caldemeyer, Kelly Jordon, Boyd Duckett and Larry Nixon.

Consumers have the opportunity to meet pros and win prizes offered by Abu Garcia and Berkley. Scattered throughout the Berkley booth and Abu Garcia booth, consumers are able to use a QR Reader app to scan an image on various stand-up displays for a chance to win an ultimate fishing package.

The other contest makes everyone a winner by simply checking in the Berkley and Abu Garcia booths using the popular and free app Foursquare®. For checking in, consumers will receive an Abu Garcia hat or Berkley Fishing Accessory kit. This contest runs through the Classic Expo while supplies last.
