2018 Classic Bass Champions Tour Open Events

For 2018, the Classic Bass Champions Tour presented by Skeeter Boats and Yamaha Outboards, is going to host two Open Events.  Both of these events will be limited to the first 100 boats and will follow the Champions Tour format, where an angler is paired with a boat official.

The first Champions Tour Open event will be held on June 30th on Gull Lake and be hosted by the Quarterdeck Resort.  There is no shortage of bass in the Gull Lake Chain, so anglers fishing this event will be in for a good time!

Izatys Resort on Lake Mille Lacs will play host to the final Champions Tour Open event on July 21st.  This time of year on Mille Lacs, several strategies could come into play, but regardless some big smallmouth will be caught!

First place at both of the Classic Bass Champions Tour Open events will be $10,000, guaranteed!  The top six finishers at each event will qualify for the 2018 Classic Bass Champions Tour Championship, where they will be competing to win a Skeeter Boat/Yamaha Outboard set up.
