FLW Forrest Wood Cup

The Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing, is the most lucrative and prestigious tournament of the year.

During the three-day event, pros will compete for a top award of $500,000, while co-anglers cast away for as much as $50,000.

Contestants will launch from Dreher State Park in Prosperity and daily weigh-ins will be at the Colonial Life Arena. On Saturday, Aug. 12, a FREE rod and reel will be given to the first 500 children 14 and under, while supplies last, to be picked up at the main exits following weigh-in. No exceptions.

FLW is adding South Carolina flavor to the 2017 Forrest Wood Cup with its inaugural Bass & BBQ competition, presented by The State, as part of the FLW Expo outside the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center and Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, SC, Aug. 11-13. The 35-team BBQ competition is sanctioned by the South Carolina Barbecue Association and will be part of a yearlong points race to find the best barbecue in the state. On Saturday, Aug. 12, fishing fans will have the opportunity to taste South Carolina's best barbecue. A $5 donation will get you five tickets to redeem for samples from some of the teams competing. Awards for first through fifth place will be presented Saturday afternoon just before the Forrest Wood Cup weigh-in at Colonial Life Arena.

The FLW Expo and Bass & BBQ event are FREE and open to the public Friday, August 11 - Sunday, August 13 from 10 a.m. - 4: 30 p.m. Live concerts will be part of the outside portion of the event all three days with Easton Corbin bringing it home Sunday inside the Colonial Life Arena at 4 p.m. before the final weigh-in.
