Next year will see new management for the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament. The all-volunteer committee that has run it since the beginning has handed over responsibility of the tournament to Federation Angler. The professional organization operates six different circuits with events across the United States and Canada. President Robert Cartlidge says Federated knows the area well and Sturgeon Bay is a perfect fit for the North American Bass Challenge.
The Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament will be the first event on the 2020 calendar for the NABC, taking place in May. Registration will begin in January and the field is capped at 200 boats.
