T-H Marine Joins Inshore Fishing Association

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – T-H Marine, a leading manufacturer of boat parts and marine accessories, has joined the Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) as an official sponsor for the 2015 season. The sponsorship includes both Redfish Tour and Kayak Tour events, as well as the all-new Lucas Oil Opens.

“The quality of T-H Marine products are well known throughout the industry,” said IFA Marketing Director Bart Schad. “And their support of tournament anglers speaks for itself. We’re fortunate to have their support and excited to work with them to grow the partnership in 2015 and beyond.”    

T-H Marine has been serving the recreational boating industry since 1975. During these 39 years, T-H Marine has been a true innovator and leader in designing and manufacturing the highest-quality boat parts and accessories. T-H Marine has grown from a three-person company, manufacturing a few parts, to a 200-plus employee conglomerate of three companies, manufacturing thousands of different products.

The new partnership will also highlight T-H Marine’s Atlas jack plate and G-Juice live well treatment products. G-Juice, formerly known as U2 Pro Formula, was developed over 15 years of research and is a single-phase, full-functional water conditioner that removes chlorine, chloramines and ammonia from live wells and fish tanks while adding essential electrolytes and maintaining proper pH levels for fish care. The Atlas jack plate is made in the United States and installed by more boat manufacturers and used by more professional fishermen than any other hydraulic jack plate on the market. 

“We’re excited about our partnership with the IFA,” said T-H Marine President and CEO Jeff Huntley. “These events provide a perfect opportunity to partner with an organization that’s passionate about inshore angling and conservation. And it’s a great platform to showcase our products to tournament anglers. We can’t wait to kick off the 2015 season.” 

Drawing inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, the IFA Redfish Tour is the largest and oldest redfish tour in the nation. Offering anglers the opportunity to compete in low-entry fee events, redfish anglers can fish close to home, minimize expenses and compete for lucrative winnings and contingency prizes.  

The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing is the fastest-growing kayak fishing tournament trail in the county. Kayak anglers competing in the catch-photograph-release tournaments can take advantage of the numerous money and product prizes awarded to competitors.

IFA events are made possible through the sponsorship and continued support of these well-respected brands: Hobie Fishing, Ranger Boats, Cabela’s, Lucas Oil, Yamaha Outboards, RAM, Berkley Gulp!, Berkley Gulp! Alive!, PENN Reels, Spiderwire, Minn Kota, Humminbird, Power-Pole, Amphibia, Arctic Ice, Protect the Harvest, General Tire, Bob’s Machine Shop, SuperClean, Mustang Survival, iON Cameras, Valley Fashions, ENGEL Coolers, Bulldog Folding Trailers, Hildebrandt, T-H Marine, ATLAS, G-Juice, Powertex Group, and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.
