Bass Pro Skeet Reese Sets Up Auction for Sandy Relief

By Joe Cermele

Over the last few days I've talked about what local anglers affected by Sandy are doing to help those in need. Now my inbox is starting to fill up with emails from the fishing community country-wide about how they're trying to help. One in particular that caught my attention was about an auction set up by bass pro Skeet Reese. Apparently Skeet is selling off some memorabilia from the tourney trail and his personal aresenal of fishing gear. He's also matching every dollar earned on every item sold, so if you're a fan of pro bass fishing, here's your shot to help those in the Northeast and score cool stuff.

The auction started yesterday, but is running through November 16th on Skeet's website, Skeetreeseinc.com. All proceeds are being donated to the American Red Cross and smaller local charities in areas affected by Sandy. Here's a little more info from the press release:

Reese will be putting up several valuable items for the auction. Included in the auction will be one of his signature Wright & McGill Co. Skeet Reese tackle bags loaded with hundreds of dollars of lures, bait and tackle that Reese uses on tour...

 

He will be auctioning off Wright and McGill Co. Skeet Reese Tessera, Microhoneycomb and Victory rods and reels and perhaps the most significant item will be one of Reese's event worn jerseys, signed by Reese; one of the rarer items in the sport. Other auction items will be added as well.

 

And from Reese himself:

 

"We cannot forget that here are people still in need after these storms, and it takes a long time to get their lives back to whole," said Reese. "It's easy for it not to be real to us all the way in California, but people are in need, and we wanted to do something to help."
