For Immediate release March 20, 2015
Smartbaits is excited to announce their sponsorship of the new FLW Canadian Championships. Four anglers will advance from the 2015 FLW Canadian Championships to represent Canada in the 2016 Rayovac FLW Series Championship. Two anglers will compete as pros with FLW providing Ranger boats adorned with the Maple Leaf and two will compete as co-anglers. The top pro award at the Rayovac FLW Series Championship is $95,000, including a Ranger Z518C if the pro is Ranger Cup qualified, and the top co-angler award is a Ranger Z117.
When I first heard about Smartbaits I was skeptical. After 40 years in the Fishing industry, I had never heard or seen anything quite like this before. However, the idea of color changing baits fascinated me. Then the more I thought about it the more it started to make sense that they would catch more fish.

Smartbaits claims its first official professional tournament win! Veteran bass fishing team of Tony Deboer, and John Horton win the Shootout Series event held on the Mississippi near Ottawa Ontario. This was Tony and John's first Shootout Series win, which is Canada's largest open series. Both these anglers are no strangers to winning tournaments, as their combined titles would be well into the 70's. What is special about this win was, they were using a few Smartbaits products.
Rapid Media Kayak Fishing - Fresh Catch: Smartbaits Lures
Unique water temp activated color-changing baits. When we first spotted Smartbaits at the 2013 ICAST convention in Las Vegas we were hooked. These lures change color depending on the water temperature - just like a real fish.

Quotes from Sammy Lee at fishing industry trade shows
"Fish see color", said Smartbaits representative Michael Dingman "and the unique chemistry in Smartbaits lures imitate wounded bleeding prey fish changing color at different water temperatures and depths. Predator fish hone in on those colors of vulnerable or injured smaller fish and attack. Smartbaits incite that attack. In cold deep water or warm shallow water, just one Smartbaits lure will change colors from chartreuse to red or watermelon to june bug to attract more fish to strike."
