Haseotes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tackle Grab, a leading online subscription-based fishing tackle retailer, announced today that it will partner with Bassmaster Elite Series pro Byron “BJ” Haseotes for the 2013 tournament season.

The company provides anglers with the latest high-quality lures from a wide variety of manufacturers, with monthly packages specifically tailored to profiles crafted by the customers. Memberships can be structured on 3, 6 or 12 month bases, and the Massachusetts-based Haseotes will play a critical role in informing Tackle Grab’s selections.

“With BJ’s expertise, we will be able to provide an array of new products and learning experiences for our bass anglers,” said Owen Hall, Tackle Grab CFO and co-founder.

Haseotes competed on the Elite Series in 2011 and took off the 2012 season on a hardship basis. This year he’ll be back in full force, competing not only in the Elite Series, but in other selected events as his busy schedule allows. He’ll start the season next week with an open event in Florida.

“I can’t wait to get started,” Haseotes said. “With Tackle Grab on board, I’ll have access to all of the products I need to succeed wherever I travel around the country.”

Stash Karandanis, CEO and co-founder of Tackle Grab, added, “We’re thrilled to have BJ on board and we look forward to following his progress throughout the 2013 fishing season.“
