The tournament has expanded this year to include smallmouth bass, and all events will be held at Presque Isle State Park.
“I’m excited to introduce the North Coast Bass Anglers in 2014,” said Tournament Director Aaron Gast. “We have updated many aspects of our tournament to allow for more fishermen to participate, and I’m confident it’ll be a great experience for everyone who comes out to fish.”
“Erie is known for its fishing, and this series is certain to be a highlight for area anglers,” said Ron Sertz, Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission. “Aaron runs a great tournament, and we are excited to see what he can do with an updated format.”
