Tell City, IN (January 15, 2020) The Owen Valley High School Bass Fishing Club is the newest program to join the Secret Lures Stupid Tube ® “Fun”raising program. The Patriot Fishing Team will be offering its own custom Secret Lures Stupid Tube as part of their fundraising initiatives in 2020. Owen Valley High School, located in Spencer, IN, came onto the high school fishing scene in 2016. They quickly became a respected program and team of competitors. The Patriots wracked up several impressive team accomplishments, as well as already producing a Bassmaster All-State Angler for Indiana. Their 2019 standout, Colsyn Head, not only made the elite list of anglers, but he also earned a scholarship to McKendree University for his bass fishing prowess.
The Patriots are the first Indiana high school fishing team to collaborate with Secret Lures on the program, but the Stupid Tube has been a part of their arsenal for years. According to Coach, Chad Smith, “Owen Valley Bass Fishing has grown by leaps and bounds in 4 short years. We have a 28 member team and have had numerous high finishes by several anglers as well as our first angler receiving a scholarship to attend one of the best Bass Schools in the country. A huge part of our success has been from throwing the Stupid Tube. It is a staple in the arsenal of all our anglers and we are thrilled to put our name on a signature color that will no doubt catch fish!”
The new Patriot Tube honors their red, white, and blue origins by incorporating three unique flake styles into a smoke-colored Stupid Tube. You’ll find a large white poly-flake, highlighted with red string and square blue glitters, making for an excellent baitfish imitation to fool bass.
Danny Blandford, President of Secret Lures, added, “We wanted to hit on all three Patriot colors in a way that would appeal to both the fish and the Owen Valley supporters. By combining different flakes you don’t normally see together, I feel like we found a winner with the Patriot Tube. Smoke is a popular baitfish tube color we don’t offer outside of our Funraising program, and this one is sure to be a standout. I think it’ll be a great tool for the Owen Valley Bass Fishing Team, both on and off the water. We’re happy to provide the program a means to help fund their program, as well as a way to keep bringing bass to the scales.”
Owen Valley has an active team with a presence at a variety of functions to help raise funds. They can often be found at basketball games and other sporting functions, where they sell merchandise, now including their own Secret Lures Stupid Tubes. Those that would like to purchase the new Patriot Tube directly from the club can also reach out to Coach, Chad Smith, via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Secret Lures customers can also contribute to this project directly by adding a bag to their order on www.Shop.SecretLures.com, where a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the program.
