2012 “The Bass Hounds” Fishing Team


2012 is shaping up to be a great year for the team.  This year the team of fishermen will be competing in the “Fishers of Men” national sanctioned professional tournaments and B.A.S.S. events stretching throughout the East. The “Fishers of Men” circuit is a new circuit that the team will be competing in.  The tournaments start in PA and then stretch to regional events and then on to the national level.  You can check out the circuit at www.fomntt.com

This year the team will be traveling to Washington DC to fish the Potomac River, into Ohio and New York to fish select lakes, as well as many events inside of PA.  There are many expenses incurred when running a team such as this, at this level of competition.  We rely solely on sponsorship, and through our own fundraising.  The major expenses for this team include entry fees for the tournaments, travel fees such as gas, hotel rooms, and pre-fishing for these events.  We would like to take a moment to thank all of our sponsors that help us do our best to stay competitive at this level.

Valvoline Oil Company, Nervous Waters, Strauss Automotive, Metal Menders, www.fishpittsburgh.com, and McElhinny Insurance Agents all sponsor the team and without their help none of this would be possible.  Please take time to check out all of these sponsors and if they can help you, tell them the Bass Hounds sent you.

What is Paintless Dent Repair and why should you have it done?

With the widespread use of high strength metal and resilient paint finished on automobiles, it has allowed PDR to become a viable alternative to traditional body repair at a fraction of the cost. There process does not harm the finish on your vehicle and in most cases is not even noticeable that a repair was even done. As with any type of service, there can be a wide range of experience levels and work quality. So it is a good idea to check around, weather it be at a dealership or a body shop, Metal Menders feels confident that one of their master technicians will provide you with the best quality PDR in the business.

Who is a good candidate for PDR?

Almost ANY damage on your vehicle could make you a good candidate for PDR. For example, people who lease a vehicle are a perfect candidate…they can have the dents removed from their vehicle prior to turning in their lease. This is a preventative measure so that you will not be charged back after the lease inspection is complete. PDR is much more cost effective. ALSO: Hail Damage, Automobile Collectors, Classic Cars and Luxury Cars

  1. hi,
    This year I want to start fishing bass tournament in western PA.
    I ‘m looking for a club or a team to join (as a non-boater). I checked a few clubs online but none of them seems to be what I’m looking for… looking for something dynamic, young.
    I thought you may have good advices.

  2. Yeah I’ve been thinking about trying to join a fishing club too, but there’s not many around for women. Any tips on where I could look to find local fishing clubs that are ‘female friendly’?
