Elite Series Rookie Brandon Card Signs with Empire Covers

Brandon Card is qualified for 2012's Elite Series Season and he has already been adding sponsors to his portfolio.  He just signed a deal with Empire Covers to endorse their boat covers.  Check out the entire press release below.

Philadelphia, PA – Today 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series qualifier Brandon Card contracted to endorse Empire Covers, the leading online provider of protective boat, vehicle and general use covers.

Brandon Card is distinguished as the first Bassmaster Elite Series qualifier to have fished his way through the collegiate bass fishing ranks.  Card captained the University of Kentucky bass fishing team for 4 years, graduating in 2009.  While at UK he fished the Boat US series, College BASS and the FLW College Fishing series.  He won the inaugural Ultimate Match Fishing College edition in 2007.  Finishing 2nd in the 2011 Bassmaster Southern Opens earned Card his berth in the Elite Series.  He plans to make the most of his preparation time between now and the beginning of the Elite Series in 2012. 

“I fished the Southern Opens out of a 2005 model 19 foot boat.  I need to sell that boat in order to even start thinking about my rig for 2011.  The current boat cover has ripped, been patched, and now has ripped again.  Empire sent me their Triton 600 cover and it fits the boat perfectly.  Having a new cover makes a boat look so much better, and will make it easier to sell,” said Card.  

“Empire has already sent a new cover for a new 21 foot boat, even though I have not finalized what make or model I will be running.  We’ve put the cover on every 21 foot boat on the market and it fits them all perfectly.  At this point in my career, every detail I can address now, and every dollar I can save, is like gold.  An Empire cover like mine for a 21 foot boat only runs $208.24 at www.EmpireCovers.com, “said Card. 

Empire Covers’ SEM Manager, Robert Brous said, “We are very excited about Brandon’s story of fishing his way through college and moving up to the Elite Series.  By getting to know him we have learned a great deal about the sport of fishing.  It is absolutely mind-blowing how expensive tournament fishing can be!  It seems that the last thing anglers would want to spend a bunch of money on is a boat cover, but they know it is a vital piece of equipment.  An Empire cover will save a fisherman from $200-$500 that could be spent buying fishing tackle or putting gas in the boat.”
