ROCKLIN Ca, - River2Sea is coming back strong for this year’s Bass Pro Shop Open coming May 19-21st to Folsom Lake, and wants to challenge participating teams to finish well as they are offering a huge incentive award for the team that takes the iconic title, offering a $1,000 Bass Pro Shops gift card to the winners of the event!

BassProShops2NOBACKGROUNDSACRAMENTO CA, Excitement is building as the second annual Bass Pro Shops Open – Top 100 event draws near, as both anglers - hoping to make it to Sunday’s drive-by weigh-in extravaganza (which will be held in front of the Bass Pro Shops store), and vendors - showcasing at the huge EXPO that will be held on that same day, are all anticipating the significant media exposure this iconic event will provide.

Last year’s event enjoyed live coverage and live on-the-water TV segments from award-winning productions such as Good Day Sacramento, tons of social media play, as well as exposure to a large segment of “general public” onlookers, making the event one to remember.

ROCKLIN, CA – Folsom Lake water levels, and mounting anticipation are not the only things rising as the 2nd annual Bass Pro Shops Open – Top 100 event draws near. For also on the rise will be the value of the award the 1st place team will receive, as Angler’s Press Outdoors is pleased to announce that this year’s first place award will nearly TRIPLE, and consist of a fully-rigged Tracker Pro 160 boat, motor and trailer package – with electronics, a package valued at over $13,000 dollars!

GRANITE BAY, Ca – The only things that parallel the steadily rising water levels at Folsom Lake, are the rising anticipation levels amongst anglers that know how incredible the reservoir can be for catching double-digit bass in the spring when its near full pool.

For as of press time, the list of anglers ready to participate in the 2nd annual Bass Pro Shops Open-Top 100 when it returns to Folsom Lake May 19-21st, is steadily growing, and only a limited field of just one-hundred teams will have the opportunity to catch some big bedding females, late staging fish, post spawners, and fish that can always be found hiding in the huge willow bushes that crowd a very fertile shoreline.

The big challenge will be that after two days of competition, the field will be reduced to only ten teams, and that group of “Super Ten” finalists will then drive from Folsom Lake to the Bass Pro Shops store in Rocklin, for a “B.A.S.S style” drive by weigh in that will see a large crowd of spectators, (most of which who have never seen big bags of bass - in living color), witness what kind of fish can be caught at Folsom Lake!

With an affordable $250 per team entry fee, a 1st place prize consisting of a fully-rigged Tracker Pro160 bass boat package, and money spread out to the top 15 places, this will be one of the most exciting events to come to the greater Sacramento area – that is open to ALL LEVELS of anglers.

And don’t forget there will be local TV coverage, a big outdoor expo at the Bass Pro Shops parking lot on Sunday, beginning at 11am, that will feature a delicious BBQ, lots of product and boat displays, demos, giveaways, along with a FREE “Kids Zone” that features a casting contest and a “live” fishing pond, where kids can win great prizes such as fishing rods and reels!


Also during the final weigh-in, there will be a big FREE raffle for great prizes for all spectators, which will include a kids mini-bike! If you wish to get in on all the fun DO NOT DELAY, and register today, as again, the field will be limited to only 100 teams.
