Scott Burns Hosts Tournament For Fallen Angler

Back in November, Pro Staffer Scott Burns helped set up a memorial tournament for Jimmy Johnson whose life was tragically taken during a fishing tournament. The tournament was put together over three weeks and raised over $4000 for Johnson’s family.

“As anglers we all have to look out for each other and when one hurts, we all hurt…”
- Scott Burns

A big thanks goes out Scott and all those who helped in organizing the tournament. Check out the link below for more.

Fisherman’s Paradise Open House Wrap Up

fishermans-paradise-open-house

Well the Illusion Baits/ Deep Creek Lures open house was a success!

We would like to first thank all of the great customers for their participation and support at Fisherman’s Paradise in Valdosta Ga. last Memorial Day weekend. We had a great turnout! If you didn’t make it out, there where lots of new products and new people were introduced.

I personally had a great time talking to everybody that was there. Lots of questions and answers. Everybody loved the Deep Creek Lure introduction to Fisherman’s Paradise. We had lots of new crank colors to show off. People did not want to wait to get there hands on them.

Next thing I would like to thank all of the pro staff that took there personal time to show up and show customers what Illusion Baits and Deep Creek Lures are all about. Thank you Pro-Staff Director Chuck Kinard, Pro-Staff Brandon Blackmon, Pro-Staff Scott Burns, and Pro-Staff Jeremy Pridgen.

We couldn’t have done this without you all!

Pink Fishing – Reeling in a Cure

Pink Fishing We are excited to announce our partnership with Pink Fishing. Together we feel we can make a strong contribution towards stomping out breast cancer!

Below is a synposis of Pink Fishing directly from their web stie.

Pink Fishing is proudly a women owned company. Two women, Tracie and Melanie, who love to fish and who also have a family history of breast cancer decided to show their love of fishing while helping out a great cause.

Tracie started fishing with her father and has continued her love of the sport with her husband while Melanie has been fishing since she was old enough to hold a rod. They met through the fishing industry and their common interests led them to create a clothing line that showed their love of fishing and at the same time helped a cause they both felt strongly about; the battle against breast cancer. They make this possible by donating a percentage of net proceeds to breast cancer research and awareness.

Their Pink Fishing design incorporates the breast cancer awareness ribbon as the ‘P’ in Pink which makes a clear statement. Pink Fishing is a fun and unique niche that targets both women and men who seek fashionable active wear while helping end breast cancer.

Pink Fishing is part of the solution to finding the cure. We are “Reeling in the Cure” one shirt or hat at a time.

Pink Fishing was the easy part, but we needed to come up with a good catch phrase and after a very long lunch meeting it just seemed to happen and “Reeling in the Cure” was born and it all just flowed after that. We had no idea how well it would be accepted and the response has been overwhelming! We are so honored to have so many wonderful people and companies that want to work with us on finding a cure.

We have committed to make a donation of 5000.00 dollars to the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. for 2013 and we are very excited about surpassing this goal!
