Monday Jan 11th, 2021

Bassmaster Announces B.A.S.S. Nation 2021 Regional Championship Schedule 

Bassmaster has announced that Erie, Pa. will host the 2021 TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation Northeast Regional Championship June 23-25 on Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay. The smallmouth mecca ranked No. 3 on the Best Bass Lakes of the Decade list. The announcement comes after the 2020 event scheduled to be hosted in Erie was canceled due to regulations stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The 2021 TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation schedule features five opportunities for grass-roots anglers to battle some of the country’s best bass fisheries. Each regional championship will provide opportunities for everyday anglers to qualify for the TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation Championship and a shot at one of three berths in the 2022 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk.

“We are thrilled that Bassmaster has chosen to host its 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Northeast Regional Championship in Erie,” said Mark Jeanneret, Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission. “The Erie region offers world-class bass fishing on Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay, as well as the accommodations and attractions that will make the tournament memorable for participants and their families. We are eager to welcome a full field of anglers to experience all that our community has to offer while competing in this prestigious event.”
