Maine B.A.S.S. Nation Continues its ReBaits Program
Once again the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation will take the leadership role of collecting used plastic baits by way of collection tubes that have been placed at boat launches in Maine and during local bass tournaments.
The ReBaits program is designed to keep potentially discarded soft plastic baits out of the water and out of the stomachs of fish, and into recycling, not landfills.
The Maine B.A.S.S. Nation has a new Triton Boat at a discounted price for any member or non member looking to purchase one. All you need to do is go to Triton Boats, build your dream rig and print your specs and contact Maine B.A.S.S. Nation President Steve Wilson to see your discount and purchase your dream rig!
We are looking at putting together a list of all the Plastic lure and line recycle tubes that the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation clubs or other organizations have placed at boat launches throughout Maine. This will help identify who placed the tubes at each location as well as give clubs an idea where they are located.
