FLW conducts over 250 bass fishing tournaments and expos nationwide for professional and amateur adults, college students and high school students. At these events, they will be educating anglers on the proper disposal of soft plastic lures.
Additionally, FLW will conduct a used bait collection drive at each of their 250 tournaments. Using special collection bins with the Pitch It logo, tournament anglers will dispose of their used baits during the event weigh-in. The local public will be invited to bring their used baits to be collected as well.
At the end of the season, FLW will donate these baits to a recycle processor, thus keeping them not only out of our waterways, but also out of our landfills.
