Last here in 2007, Bassmaster Elite Series, a 4-day bass-fishing tournament and expo, gives professional anglers the chance to compete   for $100,000 and top points to continue on to the 2018 Geico Bassmaster Classic.  Enjoy the outdoor expo from 11:30am to 4:00pm each day with the excitement of the final weigh-ins starting at 3:15pm!

While vendors interact with the crowd, jet skiers will soar across Lake Champlain's waters during the East Coast Watercross event from 11:00am-3:15pm each day.  Ages 8+ will compete in a variety of class levels to race around a 30-buoy course, providing entertainment and suspense for all spectators!
