Minn Kota, a manufacturer of electric trolling motors, renewed its longstanding partnership with FLW Outdoors, the world's largest tournament-fishing organization.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"Minn Kota continues to be a key partner of FLW Outdoors. Their commitment to innovation and quality is widely recognized by tournament anglers," said Kathy Fennel, president of FLW Outdoors operations division, in a statement.

The Minn Kota Fortrex motor will continue to be an integral part of FLW Outdoors tournament equipment in 2011, including the Walmart FLW Tour.

"As the preferred trolling motor of tournament anglers, it is a perfect fit for Minn Kota to continue its longstanding partnership with FLW," said Judy Douglas, senior business director for Minn Kota, in a statement. "We are proud to support the FLW community and contribute to the growth of competitive fishing."
