Bass fishing tournament on Lake Erie today

Roughly 150 anglers and captains compete today in the 13th annual Greater Niagara BassEye Celebrity Challenge on Lake Erie.

The fishing boats shove off from the NFTA Boat Harbor on Fuhrmann Boulevard.

Bass and walleye are the targets of the catch-and-release competition, with bass earning 50 points and a walleye 100.

After the tournament, participants attended an awards ceremony and barbecue at dockside.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation sponsors the competition to raise money to fight the disease. Over the past 12 years, the challenge has brought CFF’s Western New York chapter nearly $1.4 million.
