Pearland Spring Fishing Classic
News Release
Tuesday, February 26, 2008

PEARLAND, Texas — Every angler dreams of winning a new boat or truck…and now they have the opportunity to win both at the 2008 Spring Fishing Classic Feb. 29-March 16 at Bass Pro Shops in Pearland.  But that’s just some of the many things to see and do during this exciting event.  There’s new fishing products to browse through, live demonstrations to see, new tips and techniques to learn, music and entertainment, kids events, and, it’s all FREE!

About 150,000 people are expected to attend the 16-day event.

Anglers will also be able to learn the secret techniques and strategies used by the best anglers in the world by attending free seminars and tank demonstrations conducted by experts like Zell Rowland, Davy Hite and many more.  (See the attached file with a complete seminar listing with dates, times and topics.)

Other special events include:
•    Anglers’ Legacy: Continuing the heritage of fishing to the next generation is important. As a way to continue the tradition, anglers will be able to sign up in the fishing department for the Anglers’ Legacy program, where they pledge to take a novice fishing at least once in the next year.
•    Reel Trade-In: If attendees have any old reels that don’t see a lot of action any more, bring them in during “Reel Trade-In” days March 6 through March 9. They can be traded in for a coupon for up to 20% off the purchase price of a new reel. The donated reels will be given to local not-for-profit groups whose mission is to teach children about fishing and the outdoors.
•    Boats: There will also be a lot of boats to see, from big water boats to small fishing, canoeing and even kayaking. Visitors will really get the fever once they see the new line-up of boats from Tracker Marine--the world’s largest manufacturer of fishing boats.  Customers will find exactly what they need to have fun on the water with selections from Tracker, Nitro, Tahoe, SunTracker, Kenner and more.  
•    Kids Events: Kids can get into the spirit of the outdoors with plenty of events geared for them during the Spring Classic.  

Contest rules: Customers must register to win a new Tracker Pro Team 175 fishing boat and a 2-year lease on a 2008 Toyota Tundra.  One winner will be drawn nationally.  (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR CLAIM PRIZE.  Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia who are 18 years of age or older at time of entry.  Void where prohibited.  Sweepstakes begins 02/29/08 and ends 03/16/08.)
