Luck-E-Strike Renews FLW Sponsorship
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — FLW announced today that Luck-E-Strike U.S.A., a mainstay in the fishing industry for more than 45 years, has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the world’s premier tournament-fishing organization for the upcoming 2012 season. Luck-E-Strike recently expanded its offerings with the creation of the Luck-E-Strike RC2 line of crankbaits, the American Original lines of hard baits and a new walleye line, Walleye Fever.
FLW pro Robbie Dodson of Harrison, Ark., a four-year FLW Tour veteran, has been using Luck-E-Strike lures for years. He has earned seven top-10 finishes and won close to $300,000 with FLW. His latest FLW victory came in the EverStart Series event at Table Rock Lake in October 2011.
“I’ve been using Luck-E-Strike lures for the past 15 to 20 years,” said Dodson. “My favorite bait to use is the 10.5-inch Sneaky Snake, but it was cranking the new Wart-Hog that gave me the victory at Table Rock.”
Through the sponsorship, Luck-E-Strike will showcase its line of fishing tackle across all platforms of FLW, including tournaments, multiple websites, bass and walleye magazines, and various FLW events.
Luck-E-Strike owner John Hendricks stated: “We are extremely excited to announce the renewal of our partnership with FLW. This is a great opportunity for us to display and demonstrate our fishing tackle, and we are proud to be associated with the most competitive anglers in the world.”
Luck-E-Strike produces a variety of soft-plastic lures including the Ring Worm, French fry, Guido Bugs and Guido tubes that anglers around the world have been using to land their prize fish. In addition, the new walleye line, Walleye Fever, consists of Walleye jigs, bladebaits, bucktail Scroungers, spoons and soft plastics all done in specific walleye colors and produced to meet a variety of conditions, whether casting or trolling. They also own the Scrounger label as well as the Nemire and Chesapeake Tackle brands.
