Lake Conroe to host Bass Pro Tour Major League fishing tournament

Conroe City Council voted unanimously to approve $20,000 from the hotel occupancy tax to market and host the Bass Pro Tour Major League Fishing Tournament at its meeting Dec. 13. The tournament is planned to be held on Lake Conroe in February as the second venue for Major League Fishing’s eight-event tour.

Shannon Overby, director of Visit Conroe visitors bureau, said at the Dec. 12 workshop the fishing tour could bring in $422,502 in direct spending of tourists there for the event. “That doesn’t take into account any media coverage we’d get, or the fact that they’re looking at this being on rotation every three years,” Overby said. “From all accounts they’re very professional and already scouting the lake.”
