Western Based Elite Series Angler Chris Zaldain will be representing the Hi’s Fishing Tackle team during the 2013 season. Zaldain, coming off his rookie campaign on the Elite Series, is one of the young stars of the BASS Elite Series. During his 18 tournaments with BASS, Zaldain has won over $83,000. The former FLW Tour angler amassed over $170,000 in winnings with FLW prior to making the switch to the Elite Series.
Hi’s Tackle Box is a retail store located in South San Francisco, California. Hi’s Tackle Box, which is also online at HisTackleBoxShop.com, specializes in bass tournament gear and highly sought after Japanese baits. They do also offer a large selection of products for all freshwater and saltwater species.
Zaldain stated, “No matter where I am, Hi’s is where I get my tackle. When I am home, I’ll drive up and check out all the great products. When I am on the road, they are only a mouse click away. From selection and price to excellent customer service, Hi’s Tackle is a great place for every angler to shop.”
Dean Yoshizumi of Hi’s Tackle expressed their satisfaction with Zaldain, “Chris is not only a great angler, but a great person. He works very hard at what he does and is an angler to watch in the coming years. He dominated the western tournaments for years and we feel he is prepared to succeed on the Elite Series. Hi’s Tackle is proud to have a young angler with Chris’ skills and personality representing our shop.”
Zaldain kicks off his 2013 campaign on March 14th at the Sabine River System in Orange, Texas.
