2018 Bass Pro Shops Tournament – Okeechobee City

The 2018 Bass Pro Shops Store Tournament, Store Employee Tournament was on Lake Okeechobee in Okeechobee City at Scott Driver Park. The fishing was great during this tournament and we saw lots of big fish and nice bags. One of the best parts of this fishing tournament is the ability for the Florida Bass Pro Shops Employees to get together and share their passion for bass fishing and Bass Pro Shops. Team camaraderie, great food, awesome fishing, and lots of laughs created memories of a lifetime!
