Anybody else super pumped about this. Being in MN we don't often get a chance to see these guys fish or attend weigh-ins. Im hoping the "Mystery" tournament is also around here, my guess would be Lake Michigan out of Sturgeon Bay.
Dates: June 21-24
Venue: Mississippi River
Host: La Crosse, Wis.
Notes: B.A.S.S. has held five professional tournaments on the Mississippi River, but only two of them were hosted by La Crosse, Wis., and the most recent of those was 28 years ago. Thatís a lot of water under the cityís historic Mississippi River Bridge. Rick Clunn will be trying to recapture some of his 1983 magic, when he won B.A.S.S.í first Mississippi River tournament out of La Crosse with 22-11 over three days. Kevin Short fared a little better in 2009 at the only Elite event to be held on the Mississippi (though further south, out of Fort Madison, Iowa) with 43-3 over four days in the stingiest Elite tournament in history.
