SAN ANTONIO, TX (6/2/2020) – A full field of collegiate anglers is set to compete in the 2020 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops. Scheduled to take place on Pickwick Lake in Florence, AL June 10th-11th, this will mark the 15th year of this event. 206 boats will compete for two days to see who will be crowned National Champion.
“It’s exciting to get out on the water and host competitive fishing events again. Demand has never been higher in the sport, as these young anglers are eager to go fishing,” said Wade Middleton, Director of the Association of Collegiate Anglers. “We will have strict social distancing measures in place throughout the week, and our staff will be working diligently to ensure a safe and successful tournament is conducted.”
