Gator Guards Signs Niggemeyer, Howell


Gator Guards signed James Niggemeyer and Randy Howell to their national prostaff for 2019. Here is the information per their release:

James Niggemeyer, a Ranger Boats and Bass Pro/Cabela's pro from Van City, TX has long excelled across the spectrum as a professional angler on both the FLW Tour and B.A.S.S circuits. As well as guide on Lake Fork. "James is a great role model for showing that you can take your passion for the water and make it a career. We're glad to have such a hard working and salt of the earth angler like him on board" says Gator Guards' Nick Barr.

James has trusted Gator Guards for his boat protection throughout his career. James needs few words to explain why he chose KeelShield® "Simply put my Ranger boat is a tool to help me be more successful on the water." "I take pride in keeping my boat in great shape for the next owner and Gator Guards provides durable and lasting products like the KeelShield to protect my investment through a rugged season - I certainly wouldn't start a tournament season without one on my boat."


Randy Howell, the established Guntersville, AL angler, is best known as a Classic Champion and MLF Competitor, but what sets him apart is his genuine persona, and the strong commitment to his faith and family. The Howell family travels together across the country fishing and sharing their lives - making a positive impact in all the communities they visit and becoming a fan favorite on tour.

"We're grateful to team up with Randy Howell and his family. We've supported Randy and been guarding his rigs for over 20 years since Triton Boats trusted us as their only keel protector.  It is exciting to partner on a national scale as he puts his equipment to the test and tackles the new MLF Bass Pro Tour." said Gator Guards' Scott Smith.

"I'm excited to officially partner with Gator Guards, the makers of KeelShield. These guys are the leaders in hull protection, and I've trusted the KeelShield to protect my Triton Boats for the past 20 years. The entire lineup of products are innovative and necessary to protect your investment, especially with how we as pros put our boats through the toughest of circumstances, and expect them to be in great shape as we pass them on to the next owner. In my case, the winner of our annual King's Home boat giveaway."
