MACOMB COUNTY, MICH (WXYZ) — The Bassmaster Elite Series is the highest level of professional bass fishing tournaments.
Competitors must qualify for the series through the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens or the B.A.S.S. Nation, and anglers who are already on the Elite Series must re-qualify each year by maintaining enough points throughout the season.
The Lake St. Clair leg of this year's Bassmaster Elite Series wraps up Sunday, August 23, with one pro angler taking home the $100,000 prize.
But it's metro Detroit that could be coming out the big winner!
The tournament has an estimated $5M economic impact on Macomb County and its surrounding communities.
