American Bass Anglers will hold a qualifying tournament April 21, 2013, on Stockton Lake launching out of Hawker Point Boat Ramp.
Director Becky Minor is expecting 20-30 anglers at this event. “The weather has kept participation down, but it looks like weather will cooperate for this one,” said Minor.
Anglers travel from all over Missouri Kansas and Oklahoma to participate in ABA tournaments. The economic impact they have on the Stockton and surrounding communities is significant. Local businesses recognize this and encourage anglers to visit.
Anglers will gather at Hawker Point an hour before daybreak and fish for eight hours. Weigh-in will begin about 3:30 p.m. followed by awards to the winners. The public is invited to attend.
Anglers are fishing for cash, prizes and points that will qualify them to fish the Stockton 2-Day Championship as well as the ABA National Championship. More information can be found at www.centralmidwestbass.com or call Becky at 316/644-1454.
