Bass Cat Boats and Fishers of Men Ministries announced a three-year partnership.

Bass Cat Boats and Fishers of Men Ministries announced a three-year partnership that names Bass Cat as the exclusive boat sponsor of the Fishers of Men Stren Team Series and the Fishers of Men Legacy Series.

The Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail is a non-profit, non-denominational ministry that introduces fishermen and their families to Christianity through bass fishing tournaments.

Offering youth and adult team events, Fishers of Men hosts more than 300 tournaments across the country each year.

“I've long admired the quality of Bass Cat boats since my first ride in one back in 1994,” Fishers of Men Ministries founder and national director Al Odom said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be partnering with great people who share the same values we hold dear.”

Bass Cat will award a Cougar Advantage Elite with a trailer as the first-place prize at the 2016 Fishers of Men National Championship; the second-place finisher will receive a Bass Cat Margay.

Fishers of Men will raffle a Bass Cat Cougar Advantage with a trailer as the grand prize in its 2016 national fundraiser.

“We are pleased to be associated with Fishers of Men as we carry this to the next level,” Bass Cat president Rick Pierce said. “The goal of their series aligns with our culture and our shared beliefs. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

Bass Cat, owned by Correct Craft, manufactures bass fishing boats from its headquarters in Mountain Home, Ark.
