Daytona Beach, Fla. – June 30, 2016 – Costa recently added eight Bassmaster Elite Series anglers to its pro team. The new additions include: Clent Davis; Brett Hite; Davy Hite; Chris Lane; Shane Linenberger; Justin Lucas; Jacob Powroznik and Terry Scroggins. The new team members join 39 existing Bassmaster Elite Series pros already partnered with Costa.
“Our pro team includes not just the best anglers in the sport, but some of the best people in the industry,” said Melinda Hays, bass fishing community leader for Costa. “Not only are we proud for them to represent Costa while they’re on and off the water, but we’re proud to call them partners and friends, as well.”
Costa also recently announced a partnership with Bassmaster Elite Series tournament emcee and television host Dave Mercer. The Bassmaster Elite Series tournament trail pits the top 110 anglers across 11 competitions for a chance to qualify for the Super Bowl of bass fishing, the 2017 Bassmaster Classic, to be held in Houston, Mar. 24 – 26.
As the leading manufacturer of the world’s clearest polarized performance sunglasses, Costa offers superior lens technology and unparalleled fit and durability. Still handcrafted today in Florida, Costa has created the highest quality, best performing sunglasses and prescription sunglasses (Rx) for outdoor enthusiasts since 1983.
For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing. Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy. Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
