Registration is now open for the Ugly Stik World's Largest Santa Claus Bass Tournament, where anglers will compete for big money and prizes to benefit charity while setting a world record.
The Ugly Stik World's Largest Santa Claus Bass Tournament, slated for Saturday, December 12 on North Carolina's Lake Norman, will give anglers the opportunity to set a world record for the largest bass tournament comprised of anglers competing in Santa Claus costumes. The event, which will benefit Toys for Tots, will see hundreds of bass anglers competing for big payouts and prizes while wearing the iconic red Santa suit.
The one-day, two-angler team tournament, operated by Fishers of Men, will launch out of Queen's Landing at the McCrary Creek ramp. Entry fees for the event are $100 per team; entry fee includes a Santa suit for both competitors as well as valuable fishing products from Ugly Stik and Berkley. Guaranteed payout for first place is $5,000 with a one-in-five payout structure. A big-bass pot will also be available to competitors.
With the eyes of the world watching, an expected field of hundreds of competitors will gather to set the record for the most Santas competing in a bass tournament. Anglers will also have a chance to meet some of the top Bassmaster Elite Series and Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour pros who will be on hand to share tips, sign autographs and help distribute raffle prizes from industry-leading brands like Ugly Stik, Abu Garcia, Berkley, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Academy Sports + Outdoors, DuraSafe, Costa and others.
