BENTON, Ky. – The first episode of the General Tire Team Series Bass Pro Shops Championship Presented by B&W Trailer Hitches, the culmination of the General Tire Team Series that was filmed on the Clermont Chain of Lakes in Lake County, Florida, will premiere nationwide this Saturday, May 6, on Outdoor Channel from 2-4 p.m. ET. Episodes will premiere each Saturday, and the series will culminate with the crowning of the General Tire Team Series Champions on Saturday, June 17.

The seven-episode series will showcase the nine three-man teams that won their match in each of the three Qualifying Events competing for a $300,000 top prize. The second-place team will earn $60,000, and the third-place team will win $30,000. Teams fourth through ninth in the championship will each earn $15,000.

“On behalf of our partners, the City of Clermont and the Greater Orlando Sports Commission, we are thrilled to have hosted the Major League Fishing General Tire Team Championship in Lake County,” said Ryan Ritchie, Director of Discover Lake County, Florida – Office of Tourism and Sports. “Without the support from the Lake County Board of County Commissioners and Tourist Development Council, opportunities like this would not be possible. Events like this, create national exposure and bring attention to the championship fishing in Lake County, as well as enhancing our economic development and impact with anglers, visitors, production crews and staff visiting our communities.”

Saturday’s airing on Outdoor Channel will showcase Team Ferguson, Team Star brite and Team Builders FirstSource competing in Match 1, along with highlights from the competition and behind-the-scenes angler commentary and interviews.
