When the FLW Tour visits Lake St. Clair later this month, there’ll be plenty of bass brought to the weigh-ins, but there’ll also be craft beer, BBQ, live music and more as FLW teams up with the Bass, Brews and BBQ Festival for a weekend of exciting summertime fun at Lake St. Clair Metropark.
Someone will win a six-figure FLW Tour paycheck, the Pennzoil Marine Angler of the Year will be crowned and a good time will be had by all.
