Bass Mafia, the manufacturer of tackle storage products, is organizing a fund-raiser to benefit the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Called "Tackle for Texas," it'll feature auctions for fishing trips with Greg Hackney, Mark Zona, Brandon Palaniuk and possibly other top pros.
All proceeds from the auctions will go toward relief efforts.
“We have been hard at work lining up anglers and other industry partners to make this a unique, once-in-a-lifetime event that will be worth a lot of money to serious fans of bass fishing," said Mafia Outdoors CEO Bart Langley. "The more the trips bring, the more we can affect change for our brothers and sisters who need our help."
Said VP of sales and marketing Jeremy Starks: “We are providing lodging, Bass Mafia product and hosting an exclusive private cookout for the high bidders. We have commitments from popular brands within the fishing industry, such as Strike King and several others, to partner with us and provide product and help with this event.
"The fishing community is a pretty tight-knit fraternity when it comes to making things happen for the right reasons. If we all pool our resources, we can impact the lives of our family and neighbors who are dealing with this catastrophe."
Keep an eye on Bass Mafia’s Facebook page for more information, updated happenings and to bid or donate to the effort. This is a rapidly evolving event and information will be posted as soon as it is available.
