First and foremost, the safety and health of our anglers is of the utmost importance and concern and we are taking steps to ensure their safety. Due the DOD travel restrictions, the national, and local guidelines resulting from the current COVID-19 outbreak, the annual Military Team Bass Tournament has been rescheduled for May 31st – June 5th, 2020.

We understand the travel restrictions impede the ability of participants to travel to the tournament, and with the guidelines calling for restrictions of large crowds and the need to practice social distancing, we believe this decision is best for everyone involved.
