Garden City, Long Island, NY – January 24, 2018 – KastKing, a brand of Eposeidon, Inc., in Garden City, Long Island, NY has signed fishing pro Bill Weidler from Helena Alabama to Team KastKing for 2018. Weidler will use KastKing fishing reels, KastKing fishing line, and KastKing fishing tools exclusively throughout the 2018 season on the B.A.S.S.

Bill Weidler, an experienced tournament angler for more than 20 years, achieved his goal for the 2017 season by finishing 5th in Angler of the Year points (Bassmaster Southern Opens). It earned him an invitation to compete in the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series.
“I am extremely excited to partner with KastKing for the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Season; their product offerings are perfect for me,” says Weidler. “There’s no doubt KastKing is as passionate about their products as I am about fishing, which makes this an incredible fit.” Weidler will also be working with the KastKing product development and engineering team on new, groundbreaking fishing reels. “One of my goals on tour this year,” said Weidler this week from his home base in Helena AL, “is to give KastKing the recognition I feel they deserve.”
Weidler has his sights set on scoring first place finishes during the year with KastKing fishing tackle at Bassmaster Elite Series events at: Lake Martin – Alexander City, AL February 8-11, Sabine River – Orange, TX April 6-9, Grand Lake – Grove, Ok April 26-29, Kentucky Lake – Paris, TN May 4-7, Texas Fest – Johnstown, TX May 17-20, Mississippi River – La Crosse, WI June 21-24, Lake Oahe – Pierre, SD June 29-July 2, Chesapeake Bay – Havre de Grace, MD July 26-29, St. Lawrence River – Waddington, NY Aug 23-16, AOY Championship – Chatuge Lake – Young Harris, GA Sept 20-23, and Classic Bracket – Carters Lake – Ellijay, GA Oct 23-16.
“I’ve been around Bassmaster Elite anglers for many years and it took me only minutes to know that Bill is the kind of angler and person we were looking for to represent the KastKing brand,” says Al Noraker, Director of Product Development at KastKing. “His hard work, ethics, perseverance, and dedication to his craft fit perfectly with how the KastKing team approaches our work every day. We’re confident that with Bill’s insights and expected success in the Bassmaster Elite series, customers around the world will continue to discover why KastKing is the fastest growing brand in fishing and why our promise of ‘Affordable Innovation’ is changing the face of fishing forever.”
