BULL SHOALS LAKE, Ark., May 16, 2013 -- Jason Christie had an April full of tournament success that was more like a dream than reality. In back-to-back weeks, the former college basketball player won two professional tournaments.

 
First he won the Walmart FLW Tour event on Beaver Lake, Arkansas, then headed 120 miles east to Bull Shoals Reservoir and won the Bassmaster Elite Series event. His winnings totaled more than $225,000 in about eight calendar days.
 
Thanks to BoatUS Angler’s “Weigh-to-Win” cash bonus program, Christie is still cashing-in; picking up $500 for each of his professional victories, to add an extra thousand bucks to his April to remember.
 
“To be honest, as a professional angler, any tournament bonus program gets my attention, and the chance to win extra cash through Weigh-to-Win is the biggest reason I signed up for a membership with BoatUS Angler,” said Christie. “But, the added benefit of knowing if I blow a trailer tire or have mechanical issues, that I can dial the toll free number on this key chain, and BoatUS will send somebody to help me fix it, or get off the highway safely, is worth way more than the $38 it cost to sign-up.”
 
Simply said, it pays to buy a highly affordable BoatUS Angler membership regardless of what B.A.S.S., FLW, LBAA, College Bass or PAA events you compete in, especially when you’re registered for the “Weigh-to-Win” cash tournament bonus program, and that’s why hundreds of anglers have already signed up. To make sure you are eligible, just dial (918) 742-6424 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CST, Monday – Friday, and ask for Kendell; she’ll make sure you get signed-up.
