Las Vegas, NV - A new bass fishing website launched a little over a week ago. www.askabasspro.com
In a phone interview with the founder Cory Smith he mentions, "This is a Win Win Website. It provides great exposure for the angler and their sponsors, while providing answers to listeners that they may have always wanted to ask a professional angler! I mean lets face it, it's not every day you get a chance to ask a question directly to the big guys, but with our site, you can ask'em once a week!"
When discussing about the future about askabasspro.com Smith mentions, "We're lucky to have awesome sponsors, and therefore able to give away great prizes! Also, we're currently looking for some sponsors to help give away bigger prize packages like fishing trips, trolling motors, maybe some awesome deals on boats and other things of this nature."
The website records the interviews and plays them back with a video photo slide of the elite anglers. It's a great concept that I think is definitely worth checking out. As Cory mentioned, it's not every day you get to ask a pro.
