Organizers are pulling the plug on the annual Big Bass Bash planned for this Spring over COVID 19 concerns.

The event draws thousands of anglers from across the nation, all hoping to grab a shot at the $100,000 payout for largest fish.

Organizers say in light of the recent requests for social distancing and recommended stay-at-home orders nationwide, now is not the time to hold the event.

Those who have registered already have a few options, either transfer your registration to the May event on Grand Lake, the Fall event right here at the Lake or you can request a refund of your entry fee altogether.
