For Immediate Release –

Ponca City, Okla.—Sept. 27, 2016—Wisconsin’s legendary Sturgeon Bay of Lake Michigan hosts the 2016 Cabela’s North American Bass Circuit’s World Bass Championship this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1-2. The Midwest’s top two-person bass fishing teams will battle for top honors at the two-day event, held at Wave Pointe Marina and Resort out of Sturgeon Bay.

The Cabela’s NABC Championship features the top teams from the Circuit’s 2016 tournament trail, which included qualifiers at Lake Minocqua and Lake Wissota in Wisconsin, and Minnesota’s Lake Mille Lacs and Lake Minnewaska.

Rich in bass fishing talent, the field is led by 2016 Cabela’s NABC Team of the Year Ben Otto and Casey Gallagher of Pulaski, Wisconsin. Teams will vie for over 20,000 dollars in cash and prizes, plus lucrative sponsor contingencies including Ranger Cup, Stratos 2X and Garmin Grand Giveaway bonuses.

Teams will be allowed to bring their best five bass to the Cabela’s NABC scale each day, and the duo with the heaviest total weight when the dust settles will capture the coveted crown.

Held bayside at scenic Wave Pointe Marina, weigh-ins are free and open to bass fans of all ages, and begin daily at 4 p.m. Spectators will be treated to a steady stream of beefy smallmouth bass crossing the stage, along with tips and tales from the competitors. Plus, the Cabela’s NABC and National Professional Anglers Association will present a Youth and Family Fishing Clinic immediately following the Day One weigh-in. The first 50 youths will receive free rods and reels thanks to the NPAA.

Cabela’s, the World’s Foremost Outfitter for hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, is concluding its sixth season as title sponsor of the NABC. Other sponsors include: Ranger Boats, Stratos Boats, Mercury Marine, Garmin, MotorGuide, G-Juice and T-H Marine.

The Cabela’s NABC is based in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Entry fees are $500 per regular season tournament and $600 for the two-day championship. Along with an overall payback of more than 100 percent, a small donation is included in each entry fee and matched by the NABC and other conservation organizations up to 3-to-1 in support of bass conservation projects anywhere the NABC does business.
