For Immediate Release
Fort Atkinson, WI: In an effort to bring awareness to their Pork baits and Kalin’s soft plastics, Uncle Josh has signed 2012 Bassmaster Rookie of the Year, Brandon Card. Seen by many as one of the hottest rising stars on the Bassmaster Elite Series, Card is sure to educate people about the Uncle Josh and Kalin’s brands.
“Brandon is a young gun in the ever-growing bass tournament industry,” said Kurt Kellogg, owner of Uncle Josh. “He clawed his way up through the Federation Nation and College Championships to become one of the finest anglers in America. His love of fishing is seen in all of his success. He may be a top professional angler but just like all of us at Uncle Josh- he just loves fishing. That’s the type of guy we want on our Pro Staff.”
Card had other offers from soft bait companies but chose to work with Uncle Josh because of the quality and variety of baits they offer.
“I’m really excited about fishing their products,” Card said. “Kalin’s has some awesome new bass plastics coming out and I can’t wait to utilize Uncle Josh’s pork trailers and baits in new ways. I’m predicting some big sacks for 2014.”
Along with exposure for Uncle Josh through television from Bassmaster events, Card is also a writer for some of the top bass publications and websites in the industry. Further, he’s a guide and seminar speaker that can expose the brand on a grass-roots level that really pays off.
“Signing Brandon is just one of the ways we plan to support our dealers for 2014,” Kellogg said. “He’s part of a huge marketing plan from print, to TV, to tournament anglers that will help sell more product.”
