ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 2, 2013 – Angler-friendly service and benefit organization BoatUS Angler has graciously extended its helpful hand by becoming a new sponsor and the Official Towing Service of the B.A.S.S. Nation.

“In the short time BoatUS Angler has actively engaged with tournament anglers, roughly 80% of all Bassmaster Elite anglers, and more than 60% of all Bassmaster Open anglers have signed up for a membership,” said Steve Levi, Brand Manager for BoatUS Angler. “That kind of support has been humbling, and the next logical step is to become formally involved with the tens of thousands of B.A.S.S. Nation anglers.”
“Our affordable $38 unlimited on the road towing (Trailer Assist) membership automatically qualifies B.A.S.S. Nation anglers for Weigh-to-Win bonus cash, such as $250 to the highest placing Weigh-to-Win participant at each of the six regional divisional B.A.S.S. Nation tournaments, and $1,000 for the highest placing eligible entrant at the National Championship,” said Levi.
Mississippi B.A.S.S. Nation President Teb Jones is fast to support the make-sense, practical goodness of BoatUS Angler’s services. “A membership to BoatUS Angler alleviates concerns over something as simple as locking your keys in the vehicle at the boat ramp, or something as complicated as a broken axle,” says Jones. “One phone call, and most of your troubles can be erased with a tow or roadside assistance from BoatUS Angler.”
Teb also notes the uniqueness of BoatUS regarding their services. “Unlike other towing services, with BoatUS both the vehicle and the boat trailer are included. Plus, your membership makes you eligible for their Weigh-to-Win tournament cash bonus program. All things considered, a BoatUS Angler membership with Trailer Assist is truly one of the best values in the industry.”
Joining BoatUS Angler with Trailer Assist gives members 24/7 dispatch with access to over 20,000 roadside assistance providers in North America with the right equipment to handle boat trailers for breakdowns such as flat tires, bearing, hub or axle problems. If the problem can’t be fixed on the side of the road, Trailer Assist will tow both your disabled boat trailer and tow vehicle (while towing) up to 100 miles to a safe area, repair facility or home. Fuel delivery, battery jumpstarts and lockout service are also included. No B.A.S.S. Nation member should enter the 2013 tournament season without considering a membership to BoatUS Angler. To join, call 866-906-0013 or visit and then register for Weigh-to-Win bonus cash at
