Lake County hosting 2020 Bassmaster Team Championship on Harris Chain of Lakes

Lake County is preparing to welcome the 2020 Bassmaster Team Championship and participating anglers to the Harris Chain of Lakes.

The tournament will be held Dec. 9-12 and will include anglers from more than 30 states and several countries.

Anglers from more than 30 states and several countries are expected to compete in the upcoming 2020 Bassmaster Team Championship at the Harris Chain of Lakes.

“We wish the best of luck to all the anglers competing in the 2020 Bassmaster Team Championship,” said Jason Siegel, President & CEO of the Greater Orlando Sports Commission. “Along with our partners in Lake County and the City of Leesburg, we look forward to hosting the nation’s top bass fishing anglers next week in their pursuit to earn a berth in the 2021 Bassmaster Classic.”

The team portion of the championship will take place on Dec. 9 and 10. The team that wins will be awarded a cash prize and the chance to participate in the Classic Fish-Off, which takes place on Dec. 11 and 12.

Additionally, the top three teams through day two – six anglers in total – will have an opportunity to compete individually in the Fish-Off. The competitor with the heaviest two-day total will win the Fish-Off and earn a chance to compete in the 2021 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic.

The event launches daily at 7 a.m., or safe light, from Ski Beach in Leesburg, located at 201 E. Lake Harris Dr. Weigh-ins will take place daily at 3 p.m. at the same location. Spectators are welcome for this event, but face coverings and social distancing are encouraged.
