“We are always looking for opportunities to add more no-entry fee events to our schedule,” TBF National Youth Director, Mark Gintert, said. “The chance to work with our partners at Cabela’s and the North American Bass Circuit creates a winning situation for everyone, especially the growing base of high school anglers in the North.”
