G. LOOMIS ROD OWNER’S TO COMPETE FOR MORE THAN $13K IN CASH/PRIZES AT LAKE CUMBERLAND ‘SKELETON CUP’ TEAM TOURNAMENT
WOODLAND, Wash. –Bass anglers again have theopportunity to compete against others for more than $13,000 in cash and fishing gear at the annual ‘G.Loomis Skeleton Cup’ team tournament out of Conley Bottom Resort ( http://conleybottom.com ) on Kentucky’s Lake Cumberland. To receive a free entry into the event, both team members must have purchased any G. Loomis rod from participating Kentucky tackle dealers between April 1 through Wednesday, Nov. 13. Along with the $2,300 cash and tackle pay-out to the winning team, G. Loomis will award cash or tackle down the 20th-place team.
For the past five years, G. Loomis has teamed up with its dealers throughout Kentucky to host this event as a simple thank you to anglers who fish its rods. “It’s become both a fun competitive and social event, and we do make it worthwhile for bass anglers throughout Kentucky and a few neighboring states to join us with the amount of cash and tackle up for grabs,” said Skeleton Cup tournament director Drew Sadler. “Plus, for any of the 6th-through 20th-place teams purchasing and IMX-PRO rod for their entry, we’ll upgrade their rod prizes to the IMX-PRO series.”
Tournament hours on Saturday, Nov. 16 are from 8 am EST until 3 pm, with check-in starting on the Conley Bottom Resort dock at 6:30 am.
“It will definitely take fall and winter fishing techniques to catch largemouth, smallmouth, and Kentucky spotted bass from Lake Cumberland next weekend,” said Sadler. “The extended forecast is calling for a nice warm-up leading into the Saturday event, and hopefully that will turn on the bass.
And for the angler who does bring in the biggest bass of the day, they will be awarded a G. Loomis NRX 854C JWR jig and worm rod, valued at $550.”
