Bassmaster Elite Series Comes to Muskegon
A new event is coming to West Michigan this fall when B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society), the nation's top sportfishing organization, brings their prestigious Bassmaster Elite Series Toyota Truck All Stars Tournament to Muskegon County September 27-29, 2013.
This star-studded event will be broadcast on ESPN2 and brings the top 14 bass fishermen in the United States to Muskegon County for the first time ever, and exciting things are bound to happen! Contestants will fish both Muskegon Lake and White Lake, making the Toyota Truck All-Stars Tournament truly a county-wide event.
A $100,000 grand prize is on the line for the winners of the Muskegon tournament, so this is serious business for the 14 participants, who include Kalamazoo's own Kevin VanDam, and Mike Iaconelli, another top national bass fisherman hailing from New Jersey. Kalamazoo resident Mark Zona is ESPN's Outdoors Commentator and will be covering the event. Both VanDam and Zona are very familiar with Muskegon and White Lake, and both influenced the choice of Muskegon County for the All Star Tournament.
