Lake Eufaula to Host the 2019 Military Team Bass Tournament


Athens, AL – May 25, 2018 – American Bass Anglers announces that the Eufaula/Barbour County Chamber of Commerce will host the 2019 Military Team Bass Tournament at the Walter F. George Lake (Lake Eufaula) on May 5-10, 2019. Launch and weigh in for the 2019 Military Team Bass Tournament will take place at Lake Point Resort State Park.

The Military Team Bass Fishing Tournament began in 1991 to promote fishing and camaraderie among all branches of the military. In 1975, ABA began as the Military Bass Anglers Association, an organization dedicated to providing bass anglers in the military an opportunity to compete in tournaments with other military members.  In 2000, Morris Sheehan, a life member who retired from the U.S. Army, bought MBAA, renamed it American Bass Anglers Inc., and relocated it to Athens Alabama.

“The Military Tournament holds a very special place in my heart, so we are very excited to be hosting the 2019 Military Team Bass Tournament.  The fishing on Lake Eufaula during May will be phenomenal, and the anglers will enjoy their time on the lake.  The Eufaula Alabama community has a lot to offer anglers during their visit such as local shopping, great eateries, and multiple lodging options all with a great small-town feel.” said Jack Tibbs Mayor of Eufaula.

Lake Eufaula is a 45,000-acre lake located on the Chattahoochee River that extends across Alabama and Georgia.  This beautiful lake is nationally known for being a great bass fishery and its beautiful scenery.  Eufaula/Barbour County Chamber of Commerce has hosted numerous events for American Bass Anglers in which the anglers receive a warm welcome from the local community with its small hometown charm. 

“Lake Eufaula is the perfect location for this event, I know anglers are looking forward to coming to one of Alabama’s most talked about lakes and experience the hospitality of the city of Eufaula and Barbour County,” said Morris Sheehan, President of American Bass Anglers.  “Mayor Tibbs and all of Eufaula/Barbour County always rolls out the red carpet for our anglers, weigh-in will be at 3 pm daily and the public is invited”

Members of the United States Armed Forces from all over the country will make the drive to compete in the 2019 event at Lake Eufaula. Any active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Guard, Reserve, member may fish in this event. Immediate family of military members, honorably discharged veterans, Department of Defense civilians, contractors, and retired military members may also fish this event.

The American Bass Anglers is sponsored by Triton Boats, Mercury Marine, TH Marine, Berkley, Abu Garcia, Garmin, SiriusXM Marine Radio, Power Pole, Maui Jim and Geico Insurance. For more information about ABA call 256-232-0406.  On line, visit www.americanbassanglers.com.
