The Mississippi River is full of boats and nationally
recognized fishers this weekend.
The Bassmaster Elite tournament returns to La Crosse
for the first time in three years.
The tournament pits more than one-hundred of the country's
best bass anglers against each other.
While the tournament may not be coming back next year.
organizers say they hope to return soon.
Most times we give a place a two to three year break.
We like to do that, we like to spread the love, and
we have a lot of demand for our tournament, so we
can't accomodate everyone, but we love being here.
The tournament also include games and prizes for attendees.
Explore La Crosse is hosting the Fish Hook music festival
Friday at Copeland Park.
