The third annual Fish and Chips combination poker and bass tournament returns to Grand Lake on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The unique team format will pair each professional angler with an amateur of their choice for two days of bass fishing. On Friday, the anglers’ only Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament will be held at Downstream Resort Casino in Quapaw.
Weigh-ins during the bass tournament will be held at the casino beginning at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Among the pros competing are Oklahoma pros Terry Butcher and Jeff Kriet, Dean Rojas, Rick Clunn, Kelly Jordan, Boyd Duckett, and Paul Elias.
Anglers will launch out of Martin Landings on Grand Lake at 9 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday. The tournament champion will be determined by points each team earns in the bass tournament and each pro earns in the poker tournament.
On Saturday, a separate Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament will allow bass fishing fans play against the professional anglers.
