Lake Okeechobee Bass Tournament Offers Big Payouts for Amateur Anglers

$50,000 for the Heaviest Bass

OKEECHOBEE, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2015) - A locally owned and operated business based out of southwest Florida is offering a new concept in fishing tournaments. Hook'd Up Fishing Tournaments is giving the everyday "amateur" fisherman the opportunity to win big money like the pros, while also giving back to the community.

Co-founders, Mike Mansfield and Kevin Grace, have worked on the world famous Lake Okeechobee. "We know this lake well, as this will be a big fish time of the year here; they'll likely be spawning and there will be some huge bass weighed in," stated Mr. Mansfield.

Kevin Grace added, "This is truly a tournament geared for the entire family. A chance to cast a line and reel in a memory."

Hook'd Up Fishing Tournament is for amateurs of all ages and takes place February 27-28th, 2016. Prizes include $50,000 for the heaviest bass, with second place paying $15,000, and third place $10,000. Additionally, each bi-hourly weigh-in pays over $8,000 with four weigh-in locations around the Lake. Registrations can be completed by mail or online at
