Sturtevant, Wis. – BRP announced today the addition of National Guard FLW Walleye Tour veteran Pete Harsh to Team Evinrude, the company’s elite professional fishing team.

Harsh, the 2008 FLW Walleye Tour Angler of the Year and a Sauk Centre, Minn., native, has amassed more than $800,000 in career winnings and looks to add to his success in 2011 by relying on his 200-hp Evinrude E-TEC-powered Ranger 620T fishing package.

In good company, Harsh joins a well-respected and successful group of Team Evinrude walleye anglers, including the reigning Angler of the Year Paul Meleen and Chris Gilman, the defending FLW Sauk Centre, Minn., pro Pete Harsh shows off his biggest fish from day four on Devils Lake. Harsh finished the event in second place and earned a $32,000 check.

Walleye Tour Championship winner. In fact, Team Evinrude anglers captured seven out of the top 10 positions at the 2010 championship and all three 2010 Angler of the Year awards.

“Pete Harsh is a great addition to Team Evinrude,” said Steve Laham, vice president, Sales, Marketing and After-Sales Service for Evinrude. “As a professional angler, Pete depends on his engine to perform at every tournament. His switch to Evinrude makes a strong statement for our brand and his confidence in powering with Evinrude E-TEC.”
