2021 Opportunities

Great DeBait

The Great DeBait

The Bassmaster version of March Madness...

32 contenders will "compete" for the title of greatest bait of all time.  We'll stage the competition with high impact units in print in the beginning and for the final four chosen as well as online.  Each week, we’ll encourage people to vote for their favorites, enter the sweepstakes connected to the program and send anglers across America to Lews.com & Strikeking.com. Five-weeks of online voting will select the best bait of all time — timed to coincide with March Madness.  

 

Editorial coverage will be provided specific to each lure in order to have Bassmaster’s voice and coverage offer the best insights and depth to the best baits (and Lew's/Strike King products) to accompany them. Lew's/Strike King will have insight and input into each bait chosen as well as to what elements they’d like to include in description.

 

Aside from the collection of email addresses connected to the Sweepstakes, Bassmaster would like the opportunity to create custom Bassmaster branded Lew's/Strike King products to give away to the contestants on a week to week basis.  Collectively, we want to develop a program that will distinguish Lew's/Strike King as the brands above all brands connected to Bassmaster and to our amazing fans.  With new winners each week and with a program focused on the best performing baits, there isn’t another partner who could be better.
