Skeeter Picks All-Star Rods and Yamaha Kodiak 450 for Owner’s Tournament Participants

(Apr. 01, 2005 - Kilgore, TX,) Just two of the treats awaiting Skeeter Boat owners at the annual Skeeter Owner’s Tournament, June 9-12, in Lake Fork, Texas, will be a custom-made Limited Edition Skeeter Owner’s Tournament rod from Houston-based All-Star Graphite Rods, Inc.  And, the New Kodiak 450 Automatic 4x4, the toughest and best mid-sized ATV on the market from Yamaha.   The seven-foot rod, exclusively designed for Owner’s Tournament participants, features blanks selected from All-Star’s “American Classic Series.”  “This rod is perfect for Carolina rigging with its medium-heavy action and fast tip.  A similar All-Star rod sells for more than $100; we’re including a custom version with their entry fee.” said Daren Cole, marketing manager for Skeeter Boats. “The Kodiak 450 Auto 4x4 has a hard-working four-wheel-independent-suspension for 2005 giving it better terrainablility while making it even easier on the rider.  One lucky participant will be drawn from those anglers taking a test ride with Skeeter’s Demo Team during the pre-registration events at the dock,” said Cole.    The annual Skeeter Owner’s Tournament allows Skeeter Boat owners nationwide to participate in the celebration of the world’s first bass boat with a chance to fish for up to $100,000 in cash and prizes.  The tournament also offers live music, a Texas-style BBQ and a silent auction with electronics, tackle, trips and more.
