AIM and Warrior A Winning Combo Again For
2019 Weekend Walleye Series
The AIM Weekend Walleye Series is excited to announce that Warrior Boats is returning as a presenting sponsor of the 2019 AWWS tournament series for the sixth straight season.
“Warrior boats are made for fun, and fishing in particular, and walleye fishing to be exact, and I can’t say enough about AIM’s ongoing partnership with this top-of-the-line manufacturer, who’s been with us and supporting our Catch-Record-Release™ format since day one,” said AIM National Tournament Director Denny Fox. Warrior also is sponsor of all AIM qualifying tournaments in Minnesota and North Dakota this season.
“The Warrior name means quality, on-the-water toughness, a stable fishing platform that can’t be beat, and a lifetime warranty to boot,” Fox adds. “An AIM tourney means you’re competing in the most innovative series around, and there’s no better way to do it than in a Warrior.
A Warrior V1898DC driven by a dependable 150hp Yamaha four-stroke, and equipped with Garmin electronics is the grand prize that one team will take the keys for at the 2019 AIM National Championship Shootout May 31-June 1 on the Missouri River at Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota.
“Warrior also is the sponsor of the Warrior Cash Incentive,” added Kent Andersen, Warrior national sales manager. Win any AIM tourney with a Warrior and get an extra $1,000. Second place in a Warrior earns you $500, and third, $250. Top Warrior to finish receives $100. Second owners of a 2015 or newer & owners of a 2014 and older Warrior boats will receive 50 percent off any payout.
On March 21, Warrior announced the newest addition to their boat family, the V198DC at Minneapolis’ Northwest Sports Show.
“We call the V198 the little brother to our V208, our most popular model,” Andersen added. “It features a dual console and walk-through windshield. And it’s built to satisfy the two main requests by our customers, capability to mount a 225-hp outboard motor, and added stern jump seats, so the whole family can enjoy days on the water.”
The new boat will outperform any other 20-foot boat available, except maybe another Warrior,” added Chuck Barth, president and co-owner of the Melrose, MN-based company. The V198 features a stable, 100-inch beam, a 48-gallon fuel capacity, twin aerated livewells in the stern and bow, and a cooler in the bow. Standard equipment is a 72-inch shaft, 112-pound thrust I-Pilot Terrova bow troller, and an onboard Minn Kota 440PC battery charger.
There are two side storage rod lockers and a floor locker for a minimum of 28 rods up to 12 feet long, and lots of locking storage compartments for your gear.
“The V198 also comes with a lifetime warranty, hands down the best in the industry, and that legendary Warrior toughness, whether you’re playing on a prairie reservoir, on a river, or the Great Lakes,” Andersen added.
The V198 is the eighth boat in the Warrior lineup, all available for immediate order, ready for your choice of Mercury, Yamaha or Suzuki outboards at the 20 Warrior dealers across the U.S, and as far north as Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Start by choosing yours online.
