The area was buzzing with pro crappie fishermen earlier this spring, and will be again this fall when the American Crappie Trail returns to the Ouachita River. One thing you quickly notice is the commitment of sponsors in the business to promote fishing and make fishing better. Competitive fishing gives sponsors a chance to showcase their products.
One local angler, Steve Danna is almost always fishing, if not for crappie, for sponsors to help him be able to promote fishing and their products along the way. It’s a win-win situation.
Steve has a new major sponsor this year and it’s a product that most people have only recently heard of because, well…because it’s new. It’s called Pro Formula, and is made by Petra Oil Company, a family-owned and operated business headquartered in Houston, TX.
As competitive crappie fishing grows larger and interest in crappie for recreational fishing booms, companies like Pro Formula are getting more and more involved.
Steve says there are four main Pro Formula products aimed at the outdoorsmen for their trucks and boats, including Fuel Magnum, Diesel Magnum, PF905 Glass Cleaner and PF 917 Odor Blaster. The fuel products are great for today’s engines and different mixes of fuels. And well, the more fish a person catches, the more you can use that Odor Blaster!
“I came in contact with these folks and they were wanting to get their products introduced to the fishing world, so we’ve been working hard to do just that,” Danna said. “I’ve used the products from the start and won’t go anywhere without them.”
These products are especially important this time of year. Having fuel additive like Fuel Magnum in your boat’s fuel system is well worth the money. You’ll be hearing more about them as they get the product into more venues. We are proud to have them as a sponsor on lakedarbonnelife.com as well. And we’ve been assured there are more products to come.
