Bassmaster Elite Tournament
446977 E 980 Rd
Called the "Super Bowl of Bass Fishing", the Bassmaster Elite Tournament makes its way to Lake Tenkiller for four days of non-stop action. Skilled anglers from across the country will gather in the early morning mist at Cookson's Tenkiller Ferry Lake each day with the hopes of taking home their share of the prize money. Lake Tenkiller offers 12,900 surface acres and 130 miles of shoreline, so starting at 7am, head out to the Chicken Creek Ramp boat launch daily to spot anglers heading out for the catch of their lives.
Weigh-in is held daily at 4pm, where the public is invited to witness their favorite fisherman's biggest catch. On Thursday and Friday, weigh-in will be held at Chicken Creek Ramp, while on Saturday and Sunday, guests can gather at Cherokee Casino Tahlequah to see where each angler stands. This free event is open seating, so get there early to claim a good spot.
Saturday afternoon, meet the Elites at Angler Alley, and pick up tips, techniques, gear suggestions and bass fishing knowledge from the pros. On Saturday and Sunday, be sure to attend the outdoor expo, featuring the latest and greatest in outdoor recreation, kids' activities and fun demonstrations. At the Bassmaster Elite Outdoor Expo, visitors are invited to browse boats and fishing gear. Guests can also attend the Elite LIVE Watch Party to see which anglers take home top prizes.
