SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Nitro, Ranger and Triton brands are proud to announce today their new fishing tournament contingency programs, elevating the stakes of the Major League Fishing Toyota Series with the largest bonus payouts currently in the market.
Newly established for 2023, the brands will reward a $50,000 cash bonus to the MLF Toyota Series champion if the angler meets the programs’ qualifications. Nitro, Ranger and Triton will also offer an $8,000 cash bonus on top of tournament earnings to all qualifying first-place winners of the Toyota Series events throughout the 2023 season.
“These new programs are great news for tournament anglers!” Three-time Major League Fishing Cup champion Kevin VanDam said. “They’re the best contingency programs currently on the market with more eligible tournaments, higher payouts, and free to enter. They’re paying you to win!”
To qualify for these bigger-than-ever cash bonus prizes, winning anglers are required to fish in a Triton, Ranger or Nitro boat that is 4 years old or newer. These contingency programs are free, meaning no entry fee is required to participate, and there is no cap on the number of winnings an angler can achieve.
Parent-company Bass Pro Shops and its boat brands have a long-standing history of supporting and incentivizing amateur anglers to continue to elevate the sport of fishing. In 2021 along with its parent company Bass Pro Shops, WRMG held an amateur series tournament, the US Open National Bass Fishing Amateur Team Championships, exclusive to its boat owners with a payout of more than $4.6 million in cash and prizes.
