Century and Cobia launch fishing teams

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Boat manufacturers Century and Cobia Boats have launched a national fishing team program, the companies said in a release yesterday.

Team Cobia and Team Century fishing teams will increase their companies’ involvement and visibility in shallow water fishing tournaments. The four company-sponsored fishing teams are equipped with the new Century 2202 Bay and Cobia 222 Bay boats.

Each team consists of four team members. The teams debuted this year at the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series held in Boca Grande, Fla., last May.

“We’re excited about our new shallow water fishing teams,” said Dean Burnett, vice president and general manager of Century and Cobia Boats. “The team captains and their crews were very competitive during the recent PTTS tournaments and the bay boats with their wrapped graphics really stood apart from the other teams. We plan to keep the teams very active in the coming year.”

Representing Team Century are Capt. Jeff Hagaman from Lutz, Fla., and Capt. Troy Sapp and from Odessa, Fla. Team Cobia includes Joe Mercurio, from Sarasota, Fla., and Capt. Jeff Totten from Englewood, Fla.
