Bass Pro Shops Lake Simcoe Open Welcomes Back Jack Links and Boater As Major Sponsors!

Orillia, Ontario Canada: Organizers of the Bass Pro Shops Lake Simcoe Open bass tournament, hosted by the Aurora Bassmasters, are thrilled to announce they have once again secured Jack Links Beef Jerky and as major corporate partners for the 2014 event out of Orillia Oct 18th.  

"It is because of the generous financial support of companies like these ... as well as Bass Pro Shops of course, that we can continue to provide paybacks in excess of 100% of anglers' entry fees": said David Meadows, president of the Aurora Bassmasters.

Typically, the BPS Lake Simcoe Open is the only event in the country that produces several weights over 27 pounds year after year and holds the record for the heaviest five bass ever weighed in during a Canadian tournament at 31.5 lbs. It also lays claim to the heaviest bass ever weighed in during a Canadian Tournament- an 8.05 pound smallmouth also caught in 2010. It’s no wonder this event is recognized as the premier one day bass tournament in the country.
