Lake Champlain International (LCI) once again brings competitive bass fishing to Lake Champlain. The 11th Annual Lake Champlain Bass Open, presented by Twisted Tea, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 5, in Malletts Bay, Colchester, Vt.
Two-person teams are encouraged to register online soon and prepare to head out to Malletts Bay to angle for your six best bass. This is an one-day event with a guaranteed cash prize of $3,000 for first place. There are additional cash prizes for the first 15 places, including both small and largemouth bass categories, based on at least 90 pre-registered teams participating.
This all-day event is open to anglers of any ability. Experience bass fishing at its best and the reason why Outdoor Life Magazine lists Lake Champlain as "one of the best bass fishing destinations in the country...it's a beautiful lake that all anglers must visit once in their lives." So hook up with a partner and head out to the Malletts Bay Boat Launch on September 5th to try your luck.
Entry fee prior to noon on September 4th is $150 per team or $200 on the day of the event. Take-off times will be determined in the order received. Entries received on the same day will be randomly ordered from among that day's entries. Anglers may pre-fish up to midnight on Saturday, Sept. 4. All boats must be in the water by 5:30 a.m. Fishing hours for the tournament begin at 7 a.m. until weigh-in time at 3 p.m.
