Secret Lures Teams With Indiana University Bass Club

Candy Stripe from Secret Lures is the color of the Stupid Tube the Indiana University Bass Fishing Club will be fishing this season and selling to raise money for travel expenses.

Secret Lures is rolling out a new fundraising initiative to help college and high school fishing teams get out on the water and make the most of every cast.

The first collaboration is with the Indiana University Bass Fishing Club. Secret Lures and the club are offering a unique way to help the Hoosiers raise funds for their upcoming 2020 fishing season. The IU Bass Fishing Club will offer a custom Secret Lures Stupid Tube in their own custom color, Candy Stripe.

Club members will be selling this one-of-a-kind Stupid Tube at upcoming events such as the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show, as well as on their own website, All  proceeds will go directly to the club to help offset travel expenses associated with college competition during the 2020 season.

“As a former collegiate angler and IU Bass Fishing Club President, I know all too well the struggles that college teams have in raising funds for competition," said Danny Blandford, President of Secret Lures. "We see this as an opportunity to help the club as  well as a chance for Secret Lures and our Stupid Tube to reach a new audience.”

Secret Lures will also host a “Funraiser” section within the Stupid Tube menu on, where the new Candy Stripe Stupid Tube and other unique academic collaborations will be hosted and available for purchase to benefit select programs.

“We have several new Stupid Tubes in the works for various programs in our region and we hope that folks will buy directly from the programs themselves," Blandford said. "But in the event they want to order from us, we’ll earmark a portion of the website sales for the college or high school fishing teams the products are listed under.”

The commemorative IU Bass Fishing Club Candy Stripe Stupid Tube by Secret Lures is available at or via email to club president Logan Wade at  

Current IU Bass Fishing Club President, Logan Wade, added, “Bass fishing and the Secret Lures Stupid Tube go hand-in-hand here in the Hoosier state and we’re excited for this opportunity to work together, raise some funds and some fun," Wade said. "We came up with an awesome tube that reflects our school spirit and is a proven fish-catcher. We can’t wait to hit the water this spring.”

The Indiana University Bass Fishing Club plans to compete throughout the country with the Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series, the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series, and the FLW College Fishing Series presented by Yeti.
