Calling All Outdoorsmen & Fishing Fanatics!

Published: May 18, 2012

It seems there is a championship for everything these days, and bass fishing is no different.  With the help of Lake Lanier, Gwinnett Center will host the Forrest Wood Cup &Outdoor Expo August 9th-12th.  This tournament is designed for fisherman to have an affordable way to hone their skills and advance in the sport of fishing.

During the day, the fisherman will fish on Lake Lanier and then bring the fish – alive – to Gwinnett Center for the big weigh-in.  This is my favorite part, as some of these fish are huge!  Outdoor enthusiasts can head over to our Convention Center to tour through the Outdoor Expo before the big weigh-ins begin at 5:00pm. You might even have the opportunity to interact with some of the sport's biggest names!

What’s the best part of this event?  It’s FREE!!  So grab your friends, neighbors, kids and co-workers and come experience the magic of the great outdoors right here in Gwinnett County.
