If last month’s Lake Havasu Boat Show wasn’t enough for you aqua-babies, then you’re in luck. Retail giant and fisherman’s friend Bass Pro Shops is bringing its first ever Fishing Festival to Lake Havasu! For three days beginning this Friday, May 4th, you will have the opportunity to see and test drive new models of boats, talk with vendors and maybe even participate in the fishing tournament.
Vendors and sponsors of the first ever Bass Pro Fishing Festival in Lake Havasu include Lowrance, Mercury, Navionics, A&M Graphics, Anderson Toyota and Days Inn Lake Havasu. The boat show itself, which includes free demos, takes place all weekend. The fishing tournament, however, will take place on Saturday and Sunday (May 5th & 6th). Weigh-ins will happen at the end of each day’s fishing (3pm). The cost is $400 per boat (that includes $350 for registration and $50 for the Big Bass option), with approximately 150 boats expected to compete. If you and your buddies are interested in participating, simply click here for your registration form. There will be a special Angler’s Appreciation Dinner held on Friday evening (May 4th) for all who participate.
On Sunday, get the little tykes interested in drowning some worms at the shoreline fishing tournament. Open to anyone ages 5-15, kids will be competing for fun prizes. The kids fishing tournament takes place from 8am to 12pm. While kids under 13 don’t need to have a fishing license, they do need to be accompanied by an adult who does and must bring their own fishing equipment with them. If the lake proves a little too much for your youngster, there will be a giant inflatable pool that they can cast their lines into instead.
Of course, there will also be food available for purchase throughout the entire three day event. The inaugural Bass Pro Fishing Festival in Lake Havasu City will take place from 8am to 6pm on Friday and 5:30am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday at Windsor State Park (Lot #4). This is sure to be fun for the entire family. What’s better than spending a day at the lake with your family? Show your support so we can guarantee Bass Pro Shops comes back again next year!
