SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 24, 2022) – The Association of Collegiate Anglers is excited to announce a partnership with Bajío Sunglasses. Bajío offers an extensive lineup of premium sunglasses designed for anglers and those who spend long days out on the water. As part of this partnership, Bajío will offer a discount program for anglers, activate on-site at events, products will be featured in prize payouts, and much more.
“We are extremely excited to announce this partnership with Bajío Sunglasses,” said Kyle Curry, ACA Managing Director. “Bajío makes a phenomenal product that anglers will greatly enjoy wearing and using out on the water. From the discount program to on-site activation, along with the core principles and purpose of Bajío…this partnership is one that we are looking forward to this upcoming season!”
Bajío is Spanish for the shallows—that special part of the ocean which lies between the dry land and the deep blue. It’s the connection zone, teeming with life. The ocean’s nursery, where countless sea creatures are born and raised. This is the world in which we live and strive to protect—it’s our passion and our namesake.
Located in Florida, Bajío is an independent sunglass brand motivated by a profound connection to the water and a drive to inspire positive change. Through radically clear lenses and plant-based frames you can join their vision to harness the power of purpose. Grab a pair to see the world (and more fish) in a new light.
“This partnership with the Association of Collegiate Anglers is great for Bajío Sunglasses due to all of the unique opportunities the ACA provides to college anglers. I believe it allows so many anglers to gather together and form relationships that will carry through the years,” said Melinda Hays with Bajío Sunglasses. “Our glasses are made by anglers for anglers, with conservation and youth programs being the core of who we are. We believe in not only enhancing anglers’ opportunities on the water, but helping make a positive impact in the communities we are involved in.”
The amount of optical acumen at Bajío is the stuff of legends. With well over 50 years of collective eyewear experience, Bajío’s technical expertise runs deep. Every detail is designed for the demands of all-day use on and off the water. Bajío Sunglasses are prototyped, tested, and retested until they are the best fitting, most comfortable, lightest, clearest, cleanest, and coolest looking on the water.
Through this partnership, college anglers will be able to purchase Bajío Sunglasses at a discounted price. College anglers will be eligible to apply for a 50% discount on products. More details about applying for the discount program will be released soon. Bajío representatives were also on-site at each of the two ACA tournaments this fall to provide event participants with discount cards.
About the Association of Collegiate Anglers
The Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA), a division of CarecoTV, is a tournament organization created to facilitate growth, development, and structure within competitive collegiate bass fishing. The ACA created the original BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Series 17 seasons ago.

The ACA also provides support to dozens of smaller schools operating regional events nationwide which helps to grow the exposure of college fishing. The ACA owns the Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series, Bass Pro Shops School of Year presented by Abu Garcia program, and associated assets. The ACA lineup of major college fishing events includes a variety of tournaments nationwide that are multi-day events, all of which are televised on several networks, as well as streamed on a variety of connected platforms.
Thanks in part to the large diversity of media exposure the ACA provides, the series boasts largest amount of televised and streaming coverage of any collegiate fishing series. This includes a dedicated television series on numerous television networks, as well as additional coverage of select events inside other programs. This combination includes coverage from Discovery Channel, CBS Sports, NBC, Pursuit Channel, as well as other regional and national networks.
