I am happy to announce that BASS will be holding the Bassmaster Team Championship (BTC) Tournament on the Harris Chain of Lakes, December 5-8, 2018 from Venetian Gardens in Leesburg. The link below will take you to the BASS team page so you can read all about the event.
What does this mean for Florida?
It means if you or any of your members are interested in having a shot to fish the Team Championship Tournament, you need to get qualified to fish the Team State Championship that the Florida BASS Nation will be hosting in Clewiston on Lake Okeechobee, June 2-3, 2018. The FBN has add three last chance Team Qualifiers to the schedule anticipating this announcement was coming. The first chance to qualify will be this Sunday, May 6, on Lake Hernando from Lake Hernando Park in Hernando, FL. The next two opportunities will both be held on May 20th. One will be on the Harris Chain of Lakes from Hickory Point Park in Tavares, and the other will be on Lake Okeechobee from Scott Driver Park. Details for all three events are posted on the FBN website.
Colleges teams don’t forget, once you qualify for the State Championship you are fishing for two opportunities for a chance to make to the Bassmaster Classic. The first place College Team will advance to the College National Tournament, and if that team or teams place in the top four spots, currently, they will also qualify to fish the BTC.
