Fans can catch four days of live coverage during the Yeti Bassmaster Elite at Lake St. Clair on ESPN2, Bassmaster.com and ESPN3.

Following the Bassmaster Elite Series' previous three events — which pulled in 10 million viewers during 12 days of real-time coverage — ESPN2 will televise more live, on-the-water action from Lake St. Clair in Michigan next weekend.

To compliment Bassmaster Live coverage on the website and ESPN3, ESPN2 will also air footage from the 2020 Yeti Bassmaster Elite slated for Aug. 20-23.

Anglers will make use of their time on-screen to explain the sport, as well as offer tips and techniques to help fans of all levels improve their fishing.

Pro angler Brandon Palaniuk came from behind to win the recent Bassmaster Elite at Lake Champlain.

“I want our broadcasts to be entertaining and educational for anglers of all levels whether it’s the first or 100th event they have watched,” said Elite Series pro Brandon Palaniuk in a statement. “That’s why I do my best to explain what I’m seeing out there in the moment.”

Palaniuk, who came from behind on championship Sunday to win the recent Bassmaster Elite at Lake Champlain, had originally opted to switch circuits when Major League Fishing was expanded last year, but returned to the Bassmaster tournaments.

This will mark the eighth time B.A.S.S. has brought a major event to St. Clair since 1994, which finished No. 4 on Bassmaster magazine’s recently released Best Bass Lakes of the Decade list.

In the most recent event on the lake — the 2019 Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship — Minnesota pro Seth Feider had a massive three-day, 15-fish total weight of 77 pounds, 15 ounces.
