The City of Medford is honored to have been chosen to host the B.A.S.S. regional fishing tournament! The tournament will be held starting Monday, September 10th until Friday, September 14th at the Mystic Wellington Yacht Club. Fishing will be taking place on both the Mystic and Charles Rivers.
“Medford’s pleased to have been selected to host this competitive tournament. A winner from each state will move onto the semi finals in Birmingham, Alabama in November and winners will be able to compete in the ‘Super Bowl’ of fishing tournaments, the B.A.S.S. Masters Classic in February in New Orleans. We urge local residents to come down and view this great event! In addition, boats will be available to take out interested parties who may want to view the fishing directly. Fishing starts early 5 AM and boats start coming in around 1 PM. Weighing begins at 2 PM – 5 PM,” said Mayor Michael J. McGlynn.
This tournament is expected to pump approximately a half million dollars into the regional economy. The competing anglers had to complete a lot of permitting prior to their entrance into the tournament. The anglers competing represent eight New England States (MA, NH, ME, VT, CT, RI and NY) as well as the countries of Spain and Canada.
All are welcome!
