Loganville, Georgia dry wall contractor Kip Carter is no stranger to cashing tournament checks on the weekends. Fact is, at just 27 years old, he has won more money in weekend-level bass tournaments than most men twice his age. At last count, Carter had won around $90,000 in FLW™-affiliated events.
What he’s not used to — is collecting bonus money based on his choice of tow vehicles — at least not until this year. Kip’s uncle told him about the Toyota Bonus Bucks program, and urged him to sign-up. Carter is eligible because he tows with a 2007 Toyota Tundra. He has already won $1,000 in Bonus Bucks contingency money this spring.
“Man my uncle was right. If you tow with a Toyota, and you fish tournaments, you’d be foolish not to sign up. It’s free, and while I knew I’d have a chance to cash a few checks, I didn’t know the program would be this easy or this good. I’ve already won four $250 Bonus Bucks checks so far this season,” said the five-time BFL™ Regional qualifier.
Carter says his favorite fishery is actually western Lake Erie near Pelee Island, 700 miles from his Georgia home. “The interior cab room is one of the things I like most about my Tundra. When I’m traveling to a tournament, I can pack as much stuff as I need inside the cab.”
“I love my truck. When my buddies ask me if I like it, I take them for a ride, show them the in-dash GPS, the backup camera, and of course, I stomp on the gas from time-to-time to show them its power,” grinned Carter.
The Bonus Bucks program is simple. It’s free, and you don’t have to win your tournament to win the Bonus Bucks. To find out more, and to make sure you are signed-up, please visit www.toyotafishing.com, or call Kendell at (918) 742-6424.
