Grand Lake to host high school/college open

Grand to host no-entry High School/College Open

Last fall, 78 high school and college bass fishing teams from nine states attended the inaugural Quantum Next Generation High School & College Open at Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma.

This fall, the event will be back at Grand on Oct. 20-21 with the hope that the no-entry fee tournament will continue to grow.

More than $25,000 in prizes will be given-away, plus former Bassmaster Carhartt College Series champ-turned Elite Series pro Matt Lee will be there to greet anglers, and share both career advice and fishing tips with the young anglers.

Registration takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 20 at the Grove Civic Center. Free pizza, marine electronics seminars, and door prizes will be offered. Competition will take place on Sunday, Oct. 21 at Wolf Creek Park boat ramp in Grove.

“In five years of being around high school and college tournaments,” Lee said, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a rich product pay-out in a No Entry Fee event, not to mention, it was really well attended and run in a first class way.”…Full Story at BassFan
