The second annual Brandon Card College & High School Bass Open will take place on Norris Lake, just 50 miles north of Knoxville, Tenn. on Dec. 2, 2017. The event has a unique format, as it will be two tournaments in one.
The college anglers only compete against other college anglers and high school against high school. The two divisions will be competing for separate trophies, payouts, and prizes, where the first place collegiate team will win $2,500, and the top high school team will walk away with $1,500. I have high expectations for this year’s event, as we are shooting for over 100 boats.
“Last year was a huge success for the first year. We had a great turnout and we were able to hook the anglers up. My primary goal for the event was to give as much back to the college and high school anglers as we could. I think we achieved that goal by giving out over $15,000 in cash and prizes,” said Card.

Associate sponsors include Yo-Zuri, Fishsens Technology, Bass Cat Boats, Abu Garcia, Lowrance, Empire Covers, Gary Yamamoto, Bob's Machine Shop, Ab Card Construction, Twin Cove Marine, Coal Creek Smokehouse BBQ, Bass Pro Shops, Fish Head, and Dixie Roofing.
