BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The MLF Fisheries Management Division (FMD) continued a REDCREST tradition the day after Dustin Connell raised the championship trophy, with Minn Kota, the Kevin VanDam Foundation and MossBack Fish Habitat pitching in to provide the host community with a habitat restoration project following the tournament on the Coosa River.

The project started with a generous donation of $5,000 from the VanDam family, which was matched by MossBack Fish Habitat to provide Alabama Power with $10,000 of product to deploy into Coosa. Before the habitat hit the water, it was on display all weekend at the 2024 REDCREST Outdoor Sports for fans to see in the Minn Kota MossBack Fish Habitat Experience booth. 

On Monday morning after REDCREST, the FMD, MLF staff, MLF co-founder/Bass Pro Tour anglers Gary Klein, Alabama Power Environmental Affairs employees and local volunteers built and deployed the MossBack Fish Habitat from Lakeside Park in Pell City on Logan Martin lake. The habitat was weighted down using anchoring  materials supplied by Lowe’s Store No. 1737 in Leeds, Alabama. The products were deployed using two habitat barges owned and operated by Alabama Power. 

“We’re extremely proud to provide our third consecutive years of support with the KVD Foundation at REDCREST and showcase Minn Kota’s continual commitment to the bass fishing community and habitat restoration,” Kevin VanDam said about the project

The waypoint of each habitats location will be made available by Alabama Power on its website, as well as on the Shorelines mobile app.
