Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament sets new date, location

A new date for the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament means a return to the city limits for the 30th annual event. Now a part of the Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s North American Bass Challenge Circuit, the original dates of May 15th and 16th had to be scratched because of COVID-19 concerns. The move to Sawyer Park in Sturgeon Bay was made when the tournament’s new dates of September 11th and 12th set up a potential log jam of boats at Wave Point Marina, where the event has been held in recent years.  Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament Committee President Wendy Heim says the organization's commitment to the safety of the community made the decision to postpone rather than cancel easy.

The change will make the tournament’s annual fall event a bigger affair with all of the same prizes still awarded to the top anglers. Those previously registered for the spring Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament will be automatically enrolled in the fall event unless a refund is requested.
