Trapper Tackle Hooks Up With WIld West Bass Trail

Trapper Tackle is pleased to announce its partnership with the 2018 Wild West Bass Trail (the “WWBT”), one of the premiere bass tournament circuits in the American West.

The WWBT welcomes both professional and amateur anglers and has attracted record numbers of participants to its team and professional Pro-Am events since its inception in 2016. Trapper tackle joins other industry leaders in partnering with WWBT, including Lucas Marine, Ranger Boats, Evinrude Outboards, General Tire, and Super Clean. Tournament events are televised on the Pursuit Channel and fans can watch live weighs-in on the WWBT social media Facebook page and website.

Jeremy De Hart, Operations Manager for WWBT, says of Trapper Tackle’s addition to the partnership roster: “The WWBT is focused on providing the best product to both anglers and supporting partners. It’s a great fit; Trapper Tackle is clearly a new and innovative product that is quickly earning its place in both the industry and the angler’s tackle selection. We have seen and heard anglers walking across our weigh-in stages stating they were using many different brands of products but with a Trapper hook. To hear anglers referencing a Trapper Tackle hook with a certain type of bait clearly identifies a fishing solution. Anglers are utilizing Trapper’s unique hook design for superior presentation as well as for bait and fish retention. Almost every angler stated how well the Trapper product worked on his or her plastic and hard bait selections. We at WWBT share the same vision as Trapper Tackle, which is to be innovative and to provide the best solutions for our anglers.”

Trapper Tackle Chief Executive Officer David Freeman adds, “The fishing industry as a whole offers a wide variety of products to choose from, and Trapper Tackle hooks are proving to be not just a product but a solution within many artificial baits and presentations. It is a privilege to both support and partner with the Wild West Bass Trail. We look forward to building a strong and long-lasting collaboration with WWBT that will further enhance our shared mission to provide the angling community with superior fishing products and experiences.”

Trapper Tackle designs and manufactures award-winning and innovative fishing hooks that enable anglers to make more casts and land more fish. The Trapper hook’s unique, patented bent-box design significantly increases bait retention and improves hook set and landing ratios. Trapper hooks are compatible with a wide variety of soft plastic, live and natural bait.

Trapper’s Drop Shot Hook and its Round Bend Treble Hook won consecutive “Best in Terminal Tackle” awards at the ICAST sportfishing trades shows in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, Trapper Tackle will launch its highly anticipated Short Shank EWG Treble Hook as well as another undisclosed model, both of which will be commercially available mid-year.

The exciting line of Trapper products can be found at as well as at online dealers and retailers across and outside of the United States. For more information about Trapper Tackle, visit
