While professional sports leagues are in the beginning stages of restarting their seasons in the wake of the COVID-19 lockdowns, bass fishing pros are already at back to work.
Major League Fishing (MLF)—one of the last pro sports standing back in March—ended an 80-day COVID-related pause last week with their biggest live event yet, Toyota Heavy Hitters presented by Venmo, featuring a $753K purse.
B.A.S.S. has raised the stakes.
If you’re done binge-watching Netflix and Amazon Prime—as you should be by now—tune in to ESPN 2 and ESPN 3 all week and their live on-the-water action Elite Series event from Lake Eufaula.
Live coverage of this highly anticipated tournament pits 87 of the top bass anglers in the world against one another as they compete for the $100,000 first-place prize and a total purse of more than $700,000.
“Lake Eufaula is one of the best fisheries in the country,” said Elite Series pro Clent Davis, of Montevallo, Ala. “We’re excited to compete again, and fans are going to love seeing big bass again.”
Game on, boys! Let’s go fishing! Below are the scheduled airing times.
