BASSMASTER Team Championship set for Florida's Harris Chain

Updated: Jul 20, 2018

Florida’s Harris Chain of Lakes has been selected to host the 2018 Bassmaster Team Championship December 5 through 8, 2018.

Once again the Team of the Year from both the BM Eastern and BM Western Tour will represent CSFL and Central Ontario at the Bassmasters Team Championship! In order to be eligible for "Team of the Year" a team must participate in 5 out of 6 events (excluding Sturgeon Lake) within the Tour. The Team of the Year title is awarded to the team with the most points within the tour. Should for some reason the Team of the Year cannot participate in the BASSMASTER Team Championship the runner up team with the highest points following the Team of the Year will be given the opportunity to participate until the position is filled.

Tournament headquarters will be Leesburg, Fla. It is hosted by the Central Florida Sports Commission and LakeBigBass.com – Lake County, Fla. Part of the Oklawaha River Basin, the Harris Chain covers about 50,000 acres, including eight lakes — seven of which will be accessible to the bass fishing teams competing in the championship and connecting channels. Lake Yale, a 4,000-acre natural lake, is not accessible by boat from the other seven lakes.

Good luck to all teams!
