50 of the top bass fishermen in the world will be fishing the Bay de Noc on Lake Michigan in September.

The Escanaba City Council last week gave approval for the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year Championship Fishing Tournament to be held in Ludington Park.

Sheila Kreuger with the Delta Chamber of Commerce says Michigan will receive a lot of national attention from this tournament.

The event is expected to have an economic impact of $1 million in the area. The tournament will be held September 18th through the 21st.
