ePropulsion, a global leader and market challenger in marine electric propulsion systems and services, announced today it is continuing its sponsorship of the Georgia Total Electric Championship Invitational bass tournament – the GA Bass TEC with co-sponsor Mack Boring & Parts Co. The event will be held on April 23, 2022, on Lake Juliette in Monroe County, Georgia. Sponsorship of this event demonstrates ePropulsion’s continued commitment to promoting the use of electric propulsion in competitive sport.
The GA Bass TEC was formed in 2019. During the competition, two-person teams compete to bring in their largest five-fish limit to the scales. Qualifying anglers must have placed in the top four teams in points from each participating club to earn their right to compete. During the event, ePropulsion dealer, Tiny Boat Nation Outdoors will provide photography, videography and marketing support. Located in central Georgia, Lake Juliette is a “fishing only” 3,600-acre lake with over 60 miles of shoreline. Boats with motors larger than 25 horsepower are not allowed on Juliette, limiting traffic and fishing pressure. The grand prize for the GA Bass TEC tournament is two Navy 6.0 Evo and two E175 lithium battery packs provided by ePropulsion and Mack Boring & Parts Co.
“GA Bass TEC is at the forefront of electric-only fishing and we are proud to partner with them for a second year,” said Chris Ponnwitz, electric market manager, Mack Boring & Parts Co., ePropulsion’s distributor partner in North and Central America. “These passionate anglers are taking their sport to the next level by ensuring that they have minimal impact on the environment and fishery. They are ambassadors for responsible boating and we are honored to help them make the most out of their time on the water.”
“ePropulsion is a leader in electric outboards and the ideal Bass TEC partner as we demonstrate our commitment to protecting the environment as we pursue our fishing passion,” said Merrick McClure, director, GA Bass TEC. “Companies like ePropulsion dedicate significant resources toward research and development and the result is a product that gives us excellent weight savings, top speed and the range to be able to conduct our tournaments using just electricity. We are very excited for this year’s tournament.”
