The Champions Tour announced that it will be heading to Bay Lake near Deerwood, Minn. for its 2019 Championship. The 30 anglers who have qualified for the event will compete on Sept. 21 out of Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge.
Qualifiers for the catch-weigh-release event include FLW Tour pros Jim Moynagh, Austin Felix and Matt Stefan, along with Minnesota icons James Lindner and Dean Capra.
“We couldn’t be more excited that the Champions Tour will be heading to Bay Lake for our Championship event,” said Scott Bonnema, owner of Classic Bass/Champions Tour. “The amount of bass in the lake is tremendous, so our anglers will be keeping their boat officials busy during the day.”
The top prize is a 2020 Skeeter Boat/Yamaha package valued at over $47,000.
Fans of the Champions Tour can keep track of the live leaderboard and follow along with the action via the Champions Tour LiveWell App. Live streaming will be run continuously throughout the day on ClassicBass.com and on the Classic Bass Facebook page.
