Starting today, January 17th, collegiate anglers nationwide will be able to register for the first Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series event of the 2017 season — the Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley. The event, hosted by Henry County, will include a banquet in Paris, Tennessee the night before the event, as well as two days of fishing on Kentucky Lake. The launch and all weigh-in activities will take place at Paris Landing Tennessee on March 10-12.
The Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series will kick off the 2017 season with one of the most diverse fishing tournaments in college fishing. Last year, 436 anglers from 78 schools competed in what was the biggest field to-date since the birth of the event. The Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley offers every competitor the chance to win numerous prizes, thanks to eight separate weigh-ins throughout the event. Each separate weigh-in will pay down to ten places, as well as a daily and overall big bass prize.
“This is one of the most enjoyable collegiate events of the season to be a part of,” said the Director of the Collegiate Series and President of CarecoTV, Wade Middleton. “It’s open to all college anglers, counts double towards Cabela’s School of Year presented by Abu Garcia points and a single cast can win someone a prize! Last year the amount of prizes that we awarded exceeded $25,000 and it took a bass weighing over eight pounds to take home the overall win at this event!”
