“We are gearing up for the start of the 2014 season and thrilled to partner with Mustang Survival,” said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. “There’s nothing more important to NWT events than angler safety and Mustang products are innovative and well known for quality and comfort. We’re proud to have their support.”

Through constant innovation and application of new technologies, Mustang Survival is the leading supplier of quality flotation and personal protective equipment to the most demanding maritime and aviation customers including the Coast Guard, law enforcement, water rescue teams, fighter pilots, commercial mariners and recreational boaters.
“We’re excited to join the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour,” said Shannon Ward, director of business development and marketing at Mustang Survival. “It’s a great platform to interact with anglers that use our products each and every day on the water. Their feedback is vital to driving our product development and improving our line of safety solutions. We’re looking forward to kicking off the 2014 season in April.”
The National Walleye Tour begins the 2014 season on April 25 and includes a total of three qualifying events, plus a year-end championship. The NWT website is currently accepting registrations for all events online. The website offers numerous details on the circuit; including official rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives.
Each NWT event features over 100% payback. A fully rigged Ranger Boat, plus cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event – a total value of $57,000. Anglers that fish all three regular-season events, in addition to the top points leaders, will qualify for the three-day, entry-fee championship.
