Mississippi Bass Nation Tournament Slated for October 12-15 in Morgan City, LA

MORGAN CITY, LA — The Mississippi Bass Nation Fall Qualifier will be heled Oct. 12-15 in the Atchafalaya Basin at Morgan City, LA.

Over than 50 anglers hailing from Mississippi are scheduled to take part in the tournament.

Mississippi Bass Nation is affiliated with B.A.S.S. There are several clubs within the state that fish local events, state qualifiers and a national tournament.

Pat Engerran, spokesman for Mississippi Bass Nation, said "Our members are very excited that Morgan City, LA will host this year’s qualifier. The reputation of the Atchafalaya Basin and surrounding fisheries is as good as it gets in the United States."

Fishermen launch from the Jessie Fontenot Boat Landing in Berwick, LA.

Cajun Coast Visitors & Convention Bureau Executive Director Carrie Stansbury said: “We’re thrilled to play host to anglers from all over Mississippi. We can’t wait for them to experience the hospitality and beauty that South Louisiana, and especially St. Mary Parish, are known for,” she added.

Hosts for the event are the City of Morgan City, Cajun Coast Visitors & Convention Bureau and St. Mary Parish Government.
