27th annual Clear Lake Team Bass Tournament Kicks Off

The 27th annual Clear Lake Team Bass Tournament kicks off tomorrow. The two-day tournament is co-sponsored by the Lake County Chamber of Commerce and Konocti Vista Casino. It’s one of the more popular bass tournaments held on Clear Lake and used to be one of the largest in the nation. The winning team will receive at least $5,000 if the tournament draws 100 or more boats. The team that catches the big fish of the tournament receives about $1,200. Each team is allowed to weigh in a maximum of five fish per day and most of the experts predict it will take at least 65 pounds to take first place. The sign-up deadline is today at 4:30 p.m. at the Lake County Chamber of Commerce office located at 875 Lakeport Blvd. in Lakeport. The entry fee is $200 per team.
