Edwin Evers BPS Tour

OPTIMA® Batteries pro staffer will conduct fishing demonstrations, battery education seminars and offer fans a chance to win a fishing excursion with Evers or a free OPTIMA battery

BASS Elite Series Angler Edwin Evers will once again be traveling to Bass Pro Shops throughout the U.S. to perform informative fishing demonstrations and talk about marine battery care and maintenance. Evers is a 10-time Bassmaster Classic Qualifier and recently won the Bassmaster Elite Series event, Power-Pole Citrus Slam in Palatka, FL. This latest win qualifies Evers for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic, and puts him in fourth place for the Angler of the Year race.

In addition to fishing demonstrations, Evers will be giving one lucky fan an all expenses paid fishing trip with him through the OPTIMA® Batteries and Bass Pro Shops sweepstakes. To register, fans must be present during Evers’ visit to their local store. No online entries are allowed.

“I’ve been an OPTIMA supporter for a long time, and I appreciate the opportunity to travel and meet with my fans,” said Evers. “OPTIMA BlueTop® batteries have the power and durability to keep my boat running when I need them most. In fact, during the 2007 Bassmaster Series, I was running across Lake Erie when I noticed my motor was hanging off and my boat filled with water. Luckily, my OPTIMAs kept the pumps running long enough for me to be rescued, and win the tournament!”
