Minneapolis, Minn.– The Johnson Outdoors Brands of Humminbird, Minn Kota and Talon have re-signed on to co-sponsor the TESTRIDE program with Ranger Boats for the new season. Ten TESTRIDE events will create on-the-water product experiences with skilled, professional anglers at the helm. It's the perfect way to explore a brand's performance in a real-life setting.

Each event is free and open to the public, most often 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in conjunction with special events like professional fishing tournaments or other important outdoor programs.

"TESTRIDE is an incredible opportunity to look at the amazing screens on the new Helix units from Johnson Outdoors," said George Liddle of Ranger Boats. "Getting to see the pros use their Talon shallow water anchors and their Ulterra trolling motors with real-time experience -- it couldn't be more valuable."

The first 50 attendees who take a TESTRIDE receive a free logoed gift. In addition, a set of two Mustang Ranger logoed PFDs are available to any new in stock or custom order Ranger Boat within 60 days of taking a TESTRIDE.

Anglers in search of improving their walleye fishing skills will plan to attend the fourth annual All-Star Walleye School in Wisconsin’s famed Door County. The dates of the school are August 12 – 15, 2014 at the Lodge at Letham Smith in Sturgeon Bay. Students from all across North America attend with one common goal—to dial in on big walleyes. Learning from the very best walleye anglers in the country is the key. Top notch instructors like Kevin McQuoid, Mark Courts, Brian “Bro” Brosdahl, Bill Shimota, Dan Stier, Eric Olson and Paul Meleen will share their skills and techniques on the water in their Evinrude-powered Ranger Boats as well as during focused, classroom educational sessions.

Dubuque, Iowa will host the next stop with TESTRIDE on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event partners with the Mississippi Walleye Club’s Kids Day at Schmitt Landing on the Mississippi River. TESTRIDE is free and open to everyone. TESTRIDE has donated a children’s book to each participant in the Kids Day event through the Mississippi Walleye Club. This on-the-water showcase is a great way to experience all the equipment from sponsors: Evinrude Outboard Engines, Ranger Boats, Humminbird Electronics, Minn Kota Trolling Motors and iPilot Link, Talon Shallow Water Anchors and Dobyns Rods.

The upper midwest’s favorite summer destination, Door County, Wisconsin is the next stop for the TESTRIDE program this Saturday, July 27, 2013. Free rides in an Evinrude-Ranger TESTRIDE boat on Sturgeon Bay await. In conjunction with the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour tournament, TESTRIDE is free to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lodge at Leathem-Smith. Bass boats, multi-species boats and the new aluminum line from Ranger Boats powered with Evinrude outboards will be available for rides. Driven by professional anglers, the rigs showcase electronics, Minn Kota trolling motors, Talon shallow water anchors, Lakemaster digital mapping, iPilot Link control for Minn Kota motors and quality Dobyns fishing rods.

The winter that does not want to end may finally give up its hold on Lake Minnetonka this week. Ice out is just in the nick of time for the Minnesota Bound-Ron Schara Crappie Contest and the next stop in the Evinrude-Ranger TESTRIDE™ program on May 4, 2013. Held at Minnesota’s iconic Lord Fletcher’s in Spring Park, TESTRIDE is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. A variety of Ranger Boats powered with Evinrude outboards, await at the marina docks on the northwest side of Lord Fletcher’s. Big news for Minnesotans is the chance to experience the ride of Ranger Boats’ new aluminum line for the first time, ever.
