SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., Oct. 13, 2011 –, the world’s leading provider of real-time fishing reports, announced today a multi-year partnership with ArmyBassAnglers (ABA), a task force comprised of active duty and retired U.S. Military from all branches of service.  The new partnership aims to arm our nation’s active & retired U.S. service men and woman with the most informative fishing reports and locations in and around military installations throughout the world.

ABA consists of 12 Pro Staff anglers, 208 Coalition Pro Staff anglers and hundreds of Task Force members, all of whom are active-duty or retired U.S. military from various branches of service. The group, which currently fishes Bass Champs, Oakley Big Bass Tour on the World Fishing Network, and numerous grass roots events, gained national prominence by piloting the ceremonial “launch boats” for the past three Bassmaster Classics.  ABA members will also man the ceremonial “launch boats” for the upcoming PAA 2011 Toyota Texas Bass Classic on Lake Conroe. The organization focuses its efforts on helping other service members and raising national awareness for Returning Heroes Home, Heroes on the Water and Veteran Outdoors.
