Acorns Resort Owner Mike Harris said the tournament is bringing great exposure to Milford Lake.

“B.A.S.S. is a really well-known and respected organization nationwide,” Harris said. “There’s a lot of people that follow them. A lot of these anglers, some are from Kansas, but there’s a lot of states being represented here. This isn’t just a one-time shot in the arm.”

Harris said the anglers competing this week are looking for large and small-mouth bass. Due to the cold temperature of the water, he said he believes small-mouth bass will be more active during the competition.
