CHALMETTE, Louisiana and SPRINGFIELD, Missouri – The Redfish World Series and Bass Pro Shops/ Cabela’s Boating Center today announced an agreement making Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Boating Center the title sponsor of the 2019 Redfish World Series.

Bass Pro Shops/ Cabela’s Boating Center involvement begins with this year’s 2019 World Championship and the event, as indicated in the new logo, will be re-named as the Bass Pro Shops/Cabelas Boating Center Redfish World Series. The World Series, an exclusive invitational professional redfish tournament, will take place in St Bernard Parish, Louisiana September 26-29, 2019.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Boating Centers as the title sponsor and partner in the Redfish World Series,” said Redfish World Series Producer and pro angler Gritter Griffin. “The sport of competitive redfish angling is growing faster than ever before and, with this partnership, the future of a solid professional level for this exciting segment of the angling world is brighter than ever before.”

St. Bernard Parish, long known to redfish anglers as the World Capitol of Redfishing is just five miles from downtown New Orleans and is a community with a long and colorful history, scenic beauty, cultural treasures, and beautiful waterways.

 “The Parish” as it is known locally, has welcomed the Redfish World Series with open arms and they are more excited than ever to learn that Bass Pro Shops/Cabelas Boating Center will be the title sponsor of the World Series tournament.

When asked for his reaction to the title sponsorship announcement St. Bernard Parish President Guy McInnis said, “I am beyond excited that Bass Pro/Cabelas Boating Center has chosen to partner with the Redfish World Series. With great corporate partners like Bass Pro/Cabelas the World Series will be bigger than ever and there’s no better place to have it than St. Bernard.”

He then added with a smile, “St Bernard is a world class parish with world class fishing and the home of a world class redfishing tournament. Now, with Bass Pro/Cabelas, we have the distinction of having a world class corporate title sponsor as well.”
