Day 1 Of The Bass Pro Shops And Cabela’s 2020 NTC


We’re bringing you coverage of the 2020 Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s National Team Championship! This year we’re hosting this great tournament in the city of Oshkosh Wisconsin! The 2020 NTC is a three day, two angler team format tournament. Anglers can have up to six fish in the livewell, and can only bring their top five fish to the scales for weigh in. This year, we have 221 teams competing, and by the end of day two, only the top, “25 All American” will be moving on to day three to compete for the championship title! The first place winners will receive the grand prize of $25,000 plus a brand new Ranger 620! In addition to the first place grand prize, the top finishing Ranger Cup qualified team will also receive a brand new Ranger 620! The total cash purse for this event is $256,492, and with the time of year leveling the playing field for everyone, this is anyones tournament to win!
This event was originally supposed to take place in May, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, The Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau graciously worked with us to reschedule this event for our anglers in September! With this change of date, anglers were in for challenging fishing in September, and early on Anglers knew this would be a difficult tournament. By the end of day one, the bite proves to be tough for everyone, just as the anglers predicted. The leading weight going into day two is 9.02 ounces. With just a one pound and two ounce difference between first place and third, this is still anyone’s game.
