by: Adam Adkisson, Vice President, Triton Boats

(Mar 2, 2016 - Ashland City, TN)  Six members of the Triton Boats Pro Staff will be among the pack of elite competitive anglers vying to be the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic Champion. The annual bass tournament, the most prestigious event in the sport, will be held March 4-6 at Grand Lake O' the Cherokees, Oklahoma.
 
Triton Pro Staff members who qualified for this year's Classic include defending 2015 Bassmaster Classic Champion, Casey Ashley. The Triton Team is proud to boast back-to-back Classic Champions and 2014 winner Randy Howell also qualified through the B.A.S.S. Elite Series Angler of the Year point standings along with Brandon Card and Boyd Duckett. In addition, Triton pro Albert Collins punched his Classic ticket through the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship tournament and Thomas Martens earned his from winning the Team Championship Classic Bracket.
 
"We couldn't be prouder of our Pro Staff Classic qualifiers," said Triton founder Earl Bentz. "The competition on the B.A.S.S. Elite Series and B.A.S.S. Nation tournament trails has gotten so fierce; it's a mind-boggling accomplishment for our Pro-Staff members to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic. To have 6 pros representing Triton at the Classic demonstrates just how competitive and dedicated these fishermen are."
 
All six (6) of the Triton Pro Staff Classic qualifiers will compete for the event's $300,000 first prize from a Triton 21 TrX bass boat, a tournament model that has earned countless rave reviews for its state-of-the-art fishing features and extreme performance. "The Triton 21 TrX is truly awesome!" said 2015 Bassmaster Classic Champion Casey Ashley. "Besides its incredible speed and handling capabilities, the front deck is so huge; you could practically land a helicopter on it.  It is absolutely the most competitive and versatile tournament bass boat on the water."
