    The Kansas City Star

    Picture this: a major high-school tournament that takes place on a Missouri lake instead of in a gym, stands packed with spectators watching weigh-ins, letter jackets with an emblem of a bass on the sleeve and college scholarships given out to prep standouts who know how to handle a fishing rod.

    Don’t laugh. It could happen.

    Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine would like to announce to all Missouri BASS Federation members that we are proud to be the new Triton boats dealer for the Kansas City region.

    We have a new building located at 19700 South Peculiar Drive in Belton. Many in the area are familiar with us from our years operating in Lee's Summit, we opened there in 1995 and we just moved to our new facility right on I-49 last summer. We specialize in Mercury outboards, and many of you have patronized us in the past for both sales and service, and we want to thank you for your business. If you have not done business with us before, please consider this a personal invitation to call, email, or stop by and we will do everything we can to add you to our list of satisfied customers. We carry the full line of Triton fiberglass and aluminum boats, and we also sell Premier and Palm Beach pontoon boats. You can also find a wide selection of used boats at Sportsman's, that is a huge part of our business. We offer pro staff pricing for BASS fishermen on new boats, and we welcome new applicants for Triton team pricing to those who qualify. The programs and incentives that Triton offers to fishermen are unbelievable from club level anglers to professional anglers and everyone in-between.

    Please visit www.sportsmansoutfitter.com for more information, directions, and to learn more about our business. Better yet, please stop by and visit with us soon. We look forward to meeting you in person.

    The Missouri B.A.S.S. Nation will be holding it's annual "Spring Fling" Open Buddy Bass tournament benefiting the Conservation Federation of Missouri again in 2014. Last year we had 65 boats entered and raised $2,340.00 for the CFM. The tournament has been growing every year and I would like to see 100 boats this year compete. Thank you to all that have fished in the past and I hope that everyone brings a friend and fishes with us this upcoming year.
