The Minnesota Bass Nation worked for years to bring a Bassmaster Elite Series event to their state, and their efforts are paying off this week.
"It's great to be able to finally showcase all the great fishing in Minnesota. We're blessed and spoiled with all the largemouth and smallmouth," Mickey Goetting, Conservation Director for the Minnesota Bass Nation, said.
The team has been helping backstage during weigh-ins, and President Peter Perovich says that has been the best part of the experience.
"It's been so much fun," Perovich said. "We hope you guys come back."
