Top fishing contest coming to LKN next year

July 14. Major League Fishing says Lake Norman will host Redcrest IV, the Bass Pro Tour championship event, as well as the MLF Outdoor Sports Expo Mar. 10-12, 2023.

It will feature the 2022 Bass Pro Tour’s top 40 anglers and a $300,000 top prize.

Lake Norman has hosted MLF events in the past, but not the Bass Pro Tour.

“Redcrest IV is the most prestigious fishing event Lake Norman has ever hosted, and we very much appreciate the partnership with MLF, and formerly FLW, in hosting their events over the last couple of decades. Also, we could never host this type of event without our continued partnerships with the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation. We are thrilled to partner in making sure this is the best Redcrest yet.”
