SAN ANTONIO, TX – The Association of Collegiate Anglers is excited to announce a continued partnership with 13 Fishing for the 2023 season. This partnership will include the promotion of 13 Fishing’s student angler discount program, promotion and support of all ACA major events, to include the season ending BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops on Lake Hartwell, inclusion of 13 Fishing products in various prize payouts at events, as well as offer a wide array of benefits that will help improve each student angler’s skillset.
“13 Fishing is excited to continue our partnership with the Association of Collegiate Anglers and support college angling at the highest level. It’s organizations like the ACA that drive the next generation of competitive anglers and we are proud to be a part of it. The ACA has helped introduce our strong college programs to many young anglers across the US and we are looking forward to another great season in 2023,” said Ben Alcocer, Marketing Director-13 Fishing.
13 Fishing is a Florida based company that produces cutting edge baits, gear, rods, and reels for anglers of all skill levels. A company founded on the most important principle of fishing, the angler, 13 Fishing continues to be an industry leader in producing premier fishing equipment.
At ICAST 2021 13 Fishing debuted the Origin F1, this past summer at ICAST 2022 13 Fishing introduced the new Gerald GMAN Swindle signature line of rods and reels. The new product line brings Swindle’s wealth of experience and 13 Fishing’s modern approach together in a way that not only embodies Swindle’s intense work ethic, but also holds up to the proving grounds of the world’s toughest tournament trail.
These blanks are meticulously brutalized by the man himself and built on the next generation of Japanese PVG36T. Personally tuned by GMAN, the Meta series gives each rod seamless transition and stands alone as the best rod series at an attainable value. A steadfast principle for Mr. Swindle, you shouldn’t have to survive on beans and rice in order to afford good gear.
“13 Fishing makes great products designed for any budget and anglers of all skill levels,” said Kyle Curry, ACA Managing Director. “The discount program that 13 Fishing offers provides anglers the opportunity to buy top of the line equipment at a steep discount to help them take their talents to the next level.”
As part of this continued partnership, the ACA will work with 13 Fishing in promoting its student angler discount program. College students will be able to receive a 60% discount on rods / baits and a 40% discount on reels. To apply for the discount program, visit the Discounts & Incentives page on the ACA website. Once there, anglers will be prompted to fill out a detailed submission form that will be sent to 13 Fishing for approval. Approved anglers will then be able to purchase 13 Fishing products at discount.
