Monroe-West Monroe, LA– The Major League Fishing General Tire Heavy Hitters Special Presented by Bass Pro Shops is set to air nationwide on the CBS Television Network and Paramount+ on Sunday, December 3rd at 3 pm or 5 pm ET (depending on the local NFL schedule).
“This star-studded event – featuring anglers from MLF’s Bass Pro Tour – showcases 30 MLF pros competing in a six-day tournament on Caney Creek Reservoir and Bussey Brake in Monroe-West Monroe, Louisiana, for a purse of more than $500,000 ($100,000 to the winner). But here’s the “heavy” in “Heavy Hitters”: anglers are also competing for Big Bass Bonuses totaling $25,000 for each of the two Qualifying Rounds, $50,000 for the Knockout Round and an astounding $100,000 reward for the biggest bass in the Championship Round,” said Major League Fishing.
The special will showcase highlights from the competition which was hosted earlier this year in April by Discover Monroe-West Monroe and the Louisiana Office of Tourism.
