A new event is coming to West Michigan this fall when  B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society), the nation’s top sportfishing organization, brings their prestigious Bassmaster Elite Series Toyota Truck All Stars Tournament to Muskegon County September 27-29, 2013.
 
This star-studded event will be streamed live on www.bassmaster.com and brings the top 14 bass fishermen in the United States to Muskegon County for the first time ever, and exciting things are bound to happen! Contestants will fish both Muskegon Lake and White Lake, making the Toyota Truck All-Stars Tournament truly a county-wide event.
 
$100,000 in prizes is on the line for the winners of the Muskegon tournament, so this is serious business for the 14 participants, who will include the B.A.S.S. circuit’s top fishermen like Kalamazoo’s own Kevin VanDam and this year's Bassmaster Classic winner Cliff Pace. Other top B.A.S.S. fishermen will also be here in Muskegon County fishing for the All Stars crown. Kalamazoo resident Mark Zona is ESPN’s Outdoors Commentator and will be covering the event. Both VanDam and Zona are very familiar with Muskegon and White Lake as Michigan residents.
 
The Toyota Truck All Stars Tournament is a FREE ADMISSION three-day event, beginning Friday, September 27 and concluding Sunday, September 29 with the final weigh-in and awards.

The action begins Friday and Saturday, September 27 & 28, as the 14 All-Stars fish Muskegon Lake. On Sunday, September 29, the contest moves to White Lake as the field is whittled down to the Top 4 finishers from Friday and Saturday. The top prize is $50,000 to the winner.

Heritage Landing is the location for the weigh-ins and a local fishing/outdoors festival – the Fall Fishing Festival – running concurrently with the event. The Tournament Weigh-Ins are the highlight of each day, and we'll have tons of activities for the whole family, with a special focus on the kids, so come on out to enjoy the fun!

B.A.S.S. will also sponsor a Veteran’s Pro-Am Event pairing veterans from the Folds of Honor organization with the top national names in bass fishing.
