We always listen to our crappie-fishing customers about new ideas for colors ... we thought a contest would be a fun way to add some new colors and recognize anglers, too.
TULSA, Okla. (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
It’s hard to determine who is more particular about crappie bait colors, fish or fishermen. In either case, Bobby Garland Crappie Baits, manufactured by Gene Larew Lures in Tulsa, Okla., gets credit for having some of the most innovative and popular colors on the market, including Vegas, Monkey Milk, Love Bug, Silverfish and others.
The company is working now on additional colors for the start of its new tackle year that begins July 1 and is seeking help from the fishing public to come up with three of them.
The Garland “Color My Baby Shad” contest requires nothing more than using a free entry form to describe a new hue that uses up to two colors, and also providing a recommended name for it.
“We always listen to our crappie-fishing customers about new ideas for colors, but we just can’t do them all,” said Chris Lindenberg, owner of Gene Larew Lures, the parent company of Garland crappie baits. “We thought a contest would be a fun way to add some new colors and recognize anglers, too.”
The Color My Baby Shad is a sweepstakes that can be entered online through Facebook, or by mailing a completed entry to Gene Larew Lures. The sweepstakes’ rules can be found by visiting the Gene Larew Lures web site and then clicking on the “Color My Baby Shad” notification. No purchase is required to enter.
Entry into the sweepstakes is open now and closes at midnight on June 24, 2012. Three winners will be selected by random drawing. Each winner will receive the first 1,000 Baby Shad baits manufactured in the new color, plus will be credited in the 2013 Gene Larew Catalog for the creation.
All entries become the property of Gene Larew Lures. For more information about the contest, visit the Larew web site or call the company at 1-800-937-7258.
