The City of Ravenswood in conjunction with B.A.S.S Nation of West Virginia will be hosting a bass tournament from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 1 at Washington’s Riverfront Park for middle and high school students around the state.

According to B.A.S.S Nation of West Virginia youth director Dion Bright, teams of two will be set up with a boat coach who will take them to different spots in the river to test their luck to see who can catch the largest bass. It will be a best-out-of-five catch series, with qualifying fish at a 12-inch minimum.

This will be the third stop out of four for the B.A.S.S Nation of West Virginia High School and Middle School Trail. Winners will go on to compete at the national level, which for the middle school division will be at Carroll County Thousand Acre Recreation Lake in Huntingdon, Tennessee, and high school division at Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tennessee.

“It’s been a great partnership that I think will turn into a good relationship with the City of Ravenswood,” Bright said.

Ravenswood mayor Josh Miller said he is excited about this opportunity for the city and he can’t wait to see what the future holds.
