Nautic Global Group extended a sponsorship agreement with fishing superstar Babe Winkelman for its Polar Kraft line of aluminum fishing boats.

Now in its fourth year, the agreement means Winkelman will continue to showcase his Polar Kraft Kodiak 200 on the TV show “Good Fishing.”

“We are thrilled to be able to continue the great relationship between Polar Kraft and a true outdoorsman like Babe Winkelman,” senior vice president of sales and marketing Doug Sexton said in a statement.

“Babe’s nationwide popularity as one of the founding fathers of outdoor programming on television helps us tell the Polar Kraft story in markets across the country,” Sexton added. “He believes in the quality of Polar Kraft and, just like our boats, he’s always ready for action.”
