PA B.A.S.S. Nation hosted a 28-boat youth tournament on August 14, 2021; this was probably one of the largest youth tournaments in Pennsylvania!
During the tournament, Ernie Watkins, who coordinates our youth events, paid a visit to the Tackle Shack located in Wellsboro. While there, Ernie met the owner, Don Kelly. Mr. Kelly was excited to see that PA B.A.S.S. Nation was hosting a tournament in the Cowanesque area. Mr. Kelly came to the weigh-in during the tournament and really liked what he saw – so much so that he will be sponsoring the youth events for the remainder of the 2021 season as well as the 2022 season!
The Tackle Shack is offering all of our youth a 20% discount on their website https://www.wellsborotackleshack.com/ or on purchases in the store. They will also give anyone who follows, supports, or is affiliated with PA B.A.S.S. Nation a 10% discount. Mr. Kelly will also be providing some rod/reel combos, tackle bags, and other items to give out as prizes. Please visit the Tackle Shack’s website or if you’re in the area, stop in and shop! They have an awesome selection!
Thank you to Don Kelly and everyone at the Tackle Shack for supporting the youth fishing program of PA B.A.S.S. Nation!
