The Michigan Boating Industries Association is partnering with Angler’s Dream, a professional fishing tournament series that is hosting its year-end Tournament of Champions during the MBIA fall boat show Sept. 19-22 at Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township.

“Fishing and boating go hand in hand, and we’re excited to pair our festival with such a great fishing tournament coming to Lake St. Clair,” MBIA executive director and boat show manager Nicki Polan said in a statement.

More than 200 fishermen and their families will be attending the Sept. 20-21 tournament, and more than 10,000 are expected to attend the Boating & Outdoor Festival, which the MBIA produces. Prizes for the winning haul will range as high as $10,000, and the weigh-in will be televised.

Onlookers can watch the weigh-in activities, participate in the celebrations and listen to live music. The public can mingle with contestants and learn more about the tactics the nation’s top fishermen use.

The festival hours are: Sept. 19 and 20, noon to 7:30 p.m.; Sept. 21, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; and Sept. 22, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Further information, discount tickets, current promotions and contest information are available by visiting www.BoatingandOutdoorFest.com.
