When significant, organized competitive fishing events launched three decades ago, soon-to-be heroes instantly began dominating the game in Lund Boats. Lund factory personnel were on the scene gathering feedback from hard-fishing tournament competitors. Lund Legends such as Gary Roach, Al Lindner, Ron Seelhof, Tom Backer, Perry Good offered keen ideas and design enhancements benefiting thousands of happy Lund owners.
Lund’s commitment to supporting topflight tournament circuits such as the AIM Pro Walleye Trail has long been extended to the elite regional circuits and events including FM Walleyes Classic Cup Tournament Series.
Recently, Lund announced they will put up the bonus for FM Walleyes Classic Cup Tournament Series with a $2,500 contingency award. Simply fish the Series in a Lund Boat-a reward in itself-and win the circuit’s “Angler of the Year” title and you cash another $2,500 payday. Lund supported events for 2011 include:
• FM Walleyes Unlimited, Inc- $2,500 for Year-End Points Leader
• Nipawin Vanity Cup Walleye Tournament – $2,500 for 1st place finish
• Shaw Dryden Walleye Masters -$2,500 for 1st place finish
• Kenora Bass International (KBI) – $2,500 for 1st place finish
• Michigan Walleye Tour – $2,500 for Year-End Points Leader
• Illinois Walleye Trail – $2,500 for Year-End Points Leader
“We’ve long been dedicated to supporting not only our network of local Lund dealers, but also top local grassroots fishing events,” says Ryan Sproule, Lund Special Events and Pro-Staff Coordinator. “These key tournaments are really representative of Lund’s appreciation for local and regional competitions, as well as the local dealers who also do a lot of the one-on-one education about the authentic advantages of running a Lund.”
Sproule reaffirms Lund’s commitment to building genuine fishing boats. “We work closely with tournament directors and competitive anglers to make sure we’re absorbing every piece of their valuable feedback. It’s the only way we know how to build fishing boats; in a sense, we’re giving these professional anglers the opportunity to build their own ideal Lund Boat. And we’re proud, as well as grateful, for these longstanding relationships. It’s why we’re happy to offer continued tournament support via sponsorships and bonuses.”
“In the end, the real winners are the weekend anglers and families who purchase a new Lund.”
