Strike King and Lew's have announced the return of the Big Bass Challenge series for 2022.
“Last year we welcomed over 600 competitors to the Strike King Big Bass Challenge weigh-ins and gave away over $40,000 in awards and prizes. We are gearing up for even more in 2022,” announced Strike King Vice President of Marketing Jason McKee. “Whether you have never fished a tournament or you are a local weekend hero, find the Big Bass Challenge near you and come join the fun!”
For anglers who are new to the Big Bass format, it works like this:
• A single-day event with a weigh-in every two hours. Anglers are free to bring their biggest bass of the period to the scales in each period throughout the day.
• Cash prizes will be awarded for the five biggest bass caught during each weigh period.
• Every angler who weighs a fish is entered into a drawing for prizes from Lew’s, Strike King and partnering Big Bass Challenge sponsors.
• The angler who catches the biggest bass of the day will win the Grand Prize Bonus, a $5,000 total boat makeover of Lew’s and Strike King gear.
The mandatory rules briefing the night prior to the competition day at each event will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear from Strike King and Lew’s pro anglers and legends of the sport, as well as enter to win great prizes. Additionally, the first 100 anglers to register for each event will receive a Strike King gift card valued at $50, available for pick-up at the rules briefing.
