Harris Chain to host YETI FLW College Fishing Tournament

LEESBURG – Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced today that Florida’s Harris Chain of Lakes will host the 2020 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship. The tournament, set for Feb. 26-28, will showcase the top collegiate anglers from across the nation.

While the Harris Chain of Lakes has hosted multiple FLW events over the years, the YETI FLW College Fishing circuit has never visited the fishery.

“I can’t think of a better place to be bass fishing than Florida in February,” said Kevin Hunt, Director of Tournament Operations for YETI FLW College Fishing. “The Harris Chain of Lakes always kicks out impressive weights when we’re in town and we couldn’t be more excited to have the sport’s next generation of stars compete on one of the top fisheries in the country.”

The championship event, hosted by Lake County, Florida, will launch from the Venetian Gardens’ Ski Beach, located at 201 E. Lake Harris Drive in Leesburg.
