TAG introducing innovative reward program for competitive anglers
A new incentive program is offering freshwater and saltwater tournament anglers more opportunities to increase their winnings.
Tournament Anglers Group (TAG) offers incentive rewards to all tournament contestants from elite-level pros to co-anglers and weekend tournament anglers with equal payouts in three tiers of membership (silver, gold and platinum). There are no limits on the number of times or amount a TAG member can win per year. Registered TAG members are eligible to receive incentive rewards of up to $5,000 by competing in sanctioned bass, walleye, crappie and saltwater tournaments.
Paying a $1,000 platinum membership fee gives TAG members a chance to earn a $500 reward for winning a sanctioned event with a 30-59 boat field or being the highest Top 10 finisher in a sanctioned tournament with a minimum field of 60 boats. A TAG platinum member can also earn a $5,000 bonus by winning a sanctioned event with a 60-boat minimum field.
TAG gold members pay a $500 membership fee to earn a $250 reward for winning a 30-59 boat sanctioned event or being the highest Top 10 finisher in a sanctioned tournament with a 60-boat minimum field. Gold members who win a sanctioned event with a 60-boat minimum field will receive $2,500 from TAG.
A silver membership costs $250 a year and pays out $125 to TAG members who win a sanctioned event with a 30 to 59 boat field or is the highest Top 10 finisher in a sanctioned event with a 60-boat minimum field. TAG silver members can earn $1,250 if they win a tournament with a minimum 60-baot field.
“You could look at this as a five-year investment opportunity,” TAG Co-founder Mark Wiese said. “If you fish 10 tournaments on a gold level membership it would be $50 per event. Over five years that would give you 50 chances. If you only won once, you would still break even. Top 10 finishes or any other wins are pure profit to you.” Mark and Co-founder Kelly Power said they hope this added incentive will encourage more anglers to patronize the sanctioned events, making this a “win/win” for all parties involved
