Columbia, S.C. September 26, 2011 – The 6th Annual Berkley/Sebile Big Bass Challenge on Lake Fork is set for October 15th – 16th at Lake Fork Marina. The event has grown every year and 2011 is shaping up to do the same.
The grand prize boat packages have been upgraded to a new Skeeter ZX 200/Yamaha SHO that will be awarded to the heaviest fish over 24 inches and a new Skeeter ZX 190/Yamaha 150 VMax awarded to the heaviest fish that measures less than 16 inches.
“The Lake Fork event has always been an extremely successful event,” said Andrew Marks, Marketing Director for Berkley. “Anglers have an excellent opportunity to cash in on a single fish in a fun and exciting tournament on a premier bass fishing lake. Sebile baits are now legal to use in these events, which broadens the type of fishing that can be done.”
The Berkley Experience trailer partnered with Lake Fork Marina and will be on site from Friday, October 15th at noon until the final weigh-in and awards on Sunday.
The trailer features interactive presentation screens, educational seminars on line selection, reel maintenance and selecting the right bait, a knot tying station and competition, bait demonstration tanks and many other fun elements designed to help the anglers Catch More Fish.
The Experience Team and Pro Staff will also be on hand to help anglers with their selection of Berkley and Sebile baits, if anglers have not already stocked up for the tournament.
