Cape Coral, FL, United States, 2007/02/12 - Renegade Marine, Florida based boat builder, announces the signing of Capt. Alex Suescun to the company’s Pro Angling Team.
Capt. Alex Suescun, professional redfish angler and host of the popular TV show, Tarpon Bay Tales, will be buzzing around the flats and bays aboard a new boat this year. That’s right, Steve Hamilton, president of Florida based Renegade Marine, announced the signing of Suescun to the company’s Pro Angling Team. “We believe that Alex is the ideal candidate to help promote our boats,” said Hamilton.
“I’m very excited to be working with a company that understands the demands of hardcore shallow water anglers,” declared Suescun, who this year will run an 18ft Nomad, one of Renegade’s 3 high performance models. “What attracted me to the Nomads is that they offer speed, superb handling, and shallow draft across the board,” he added.
Capt. Alex loves poling in skinny water, looking for fish, but for tournaments he needs more than shallow draft. “You absolutely need a fast boat that can also take the chop of an open bay on a windy day, and the Nomad 18 is just perfect!” And when the angling situation or the sea conditions call for a larger boat with more range, Suescun will hop aboard a Nomad 22 skippered by his tournament partner, Capt. Eric Taylor, who also joined Renegade’s Pro Angling Team. “Powered by Mercury 150HP and 225XS Pro Optimax outboards both boats will reach speeds of more than 60mph and still float in less than 12 inches of water,” Alex explained.
Aside from promoting the Nomads, Suescun plans to also spread the word about Renegade’s other line of shallow draft boats – the Skate 17 and 20. “Not only are they spacious and super stable, they also run and float incredibly shallow,” said Hamilton, Renegade Marine’s top man.
In addition to competing in pro tournaments and hosting his own weekly TV series, Capt. Alex conducts seminars at boat shows and fishing expos. Renegade Marine will have boats on display at some of those events, and Alex will be on hand to answer questions and lend sales support. “The boats are terrific, and I’m confident that fans of Tarpon Bay Tales and the Oberto Redfish Cup will take notice,” he added.
In April of 2007 Capt. Alex will kick off Tarpon Bay Tales’ 8th season on TV. Saltwater fishing fans can follow the action via 3 different popular sports networks - Sun Sports, Comcast Sports Southeast, and The Water Channel.
