Wabash Valley College’s bass team will be hosting a high school bass fishing invitational at East Fork Lake in Olney, Illinois, on Saturday, Mar. 21.
The tournament is limited to the first 30 boats to register so early registration is encouraged. Registration will close when the 30-boat limit is met. Those registered by Mar. 1 will receive a free Wabash Valley College Bass t-shirt.
This is a two-angler team tournament. The cost is $30 per team; additionally, East Fork Lake requires an Olney boat sticker, which can be purchased on a daily or annual basis.
The tournament will run from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. with team check-in running from 5:30 a.m. until 6:30 a.m. A pre-tournament meeting will take place at 6:30 a.m. Boat take off will be determined by a draw either at check-in or the evening prior if the tournament field is full.
There is a five fish limit per team, with a 12-inch minimum length per fish. Awards will be given to the top three teams and to the individual with the biggest bass. The top finishing senior will be awarded a scholarship to fish on the 2020–2021 bass team at Wabash Valley College.
