Bassmaster Elite Series pro Ott DeFoe will host the Goodwill Bass Tournament June 8 at Tennessee's Doubls Lake. The event will launch out of the Shady Grove ramp and the top prize is $1,200. Payout will be one place for every six boats, based on a field of 40 boats.
The tournament will get under way at safe light and weigh-ins will begin at 3 p.m. Anglers can register at anytime until 4:30 p.m. on June 7. The registration fee is $100 per boa – late registration is available on the morning of the tournament for $125 per boat. Departure times are determined by order of registration.
Anglers interested in a chance to practice with DeFoe or to be his partner in the tournament should visit www.odfishing.net and look for those options to be auctioned soon. DeFoe will donate all funds generated by the auctions to Goodwill Industries-Knoxville, Inc.
