Bassmaster Tournament Goes On In Spite of Drought


DECATUR IL - The drought may be affecting many things in Decatur, not the Bassmaster Tournament. The event will go on as scheduled in Decatur September 20 – 23.

"The weigh ins, sports expo, family festival, concert and media events have always been planned for Decatur, regardless of where the anglers fish,"  Jeff Hendricks, Executive Director of the Decatur Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. "It's looking like now, that unless we get a lot of rain soon, the fishing will take place in Lake Shelbyville all four days instead of just two days as planned."

Boaters are still hopeful they will be able to fish from their boat, only time and weather will tell if they can do that.
