BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The 2021 TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation schedule features five opportunities for grass-roots anglers to battle some of the country’s best bass fisheries. Each regional championship will provide opportunities for everyday anglers to qualify for the TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation Championship and a shot at one of three berths in the 2022 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk.
“As we’ve seen in the past with anglers like Paul Mueller and Brandon Palaniuk, who both won Elite Series events last year, the B.A.S.S. Nation can be the gateway to a stellar career in professional fishing,” said B.A.S.S. Nation Director Jon Stewart. “Once you reach the Nation Championship, you’re fishing for a chance to fish in the Bassmaster Classic, and we’re excited this year to offer even more chances for anglers to do that.
“We’ve put together a great, really unique schedule.”
The schedule will kick off with the Western Regional at Lake Havasu in Havasu, Ariz., Feb. 3-5. This Western fishery, which offers a combination of crystal-clear waters and stark desert beauty, ranked No. 17 on Bassmaster Magazine’s list of the Best Bass Lakes of the Decade.
During April, Nation anglers will take on the largest lake in Kansas during the Central Regional at Milford Lake in Junction City, Kan., April 21-23, just before the Southeast Regional heads to Lake Hartwell in Anderson, S.C., April 28-30. Hartwell has hosted three Bassmaster Classics and six major B.A.S.S. events.The schedule will swing to the upper region of the United States with the Northeast Regional at Lake Erie/Presque Isle Bay in Erie, Pa., June 23-25. This smallmouth mecca ranked No. 3 on the Best Bass Lakes of the Decade list.
“We are thrilled that Bassmaster has chosen to host its 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Northeast Regional Championship in Erie,” said Mark Jeanneret, Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission. “The Erie region offers world-class bass fishing on Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay, as well as the accommodations and attractions that will make the tournament memorable for participants and their families. We are eager to welcome a full field of anglers to experience all that our community has to offer while competing in this prestigious event.”
The final regular-season event, the Northern Regional, will be held on the Upper Mississippi River out of La Crosse, Wis., Sept. 1-3.
“The B.A.S.S. Nation means so much to so many different people,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin. “Of course, for those anglers who aspire to fish professionally, it can certainly be a great stepping stone. For weekend anglers, it is a chance to compete for big money on a big stage. Beyond these Regional Championship events, there is such great camaraderie among B.A.S.S. Nation clubs at their local tournaments and youth events.”
The date and location for the 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Championship will be released at a later date. The Championship tournament will be made up of qualifiers from all five regions, and the Top 3 anglers from the overall standings will earn a berth to the 2022 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk.
The winner of the 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Championship will also receive a cash prize, an invitation to join the 2022 Bassmaster Elite Series and use of a “Nation’s Best” wrapped, tournament-ready boat.

A day for celebration through the power of art and togetherness
Anderson, SC (January 6, 2021) – Anderson Mall has teamed up with the Anderson City Council to host an event to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 15, 2021 at 9 a.m. This will be a virtual event live streamed in the Anderson Mall’s center court for the Mayor’s MLK Breakfast. The celebration will feature Keynote speaker, Brandon Micheal Hall followed by the Mayor’s ribbon cutting ceremony of the mural and parking space dedication at the main entrance parking lot.
Sponsor, Trammell & Mills Law Firm, LLC and local artist Patro Pero Ulmer will be working together to add color, texture and vibrancy to outdoor spaces for the community to enjoy as part of the mural ribbon cutting and parking space dedication. Patro is an artist and designer from Orangeburg, SC and is known for his vision and creativity within the community. Patro created the Butterfly mural located at the main entrance of the Anderson Mall, presented by Chappelear & Associates Real Estate Specialists Inc. Patro has also been recognized for other artwork such as his clothing, school murals, and assisted with creating the Mural on Main in Anderson.
“The mural’s represent a way of electrifying the city of Anderson, from the mural downtown to the mural at the mall. There is power in art!” said Chunsta Miller, General Manager at Anderson Mall. “This ceremony and dedication is very important as we get closer to MLK Day because we are continuing Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream by uniting and coming together as a community! The power of art and expression can be used to give hope, peace, and love to the Anderson area. The mural projects support our local arts culture, inspires our youth, all while providing an opportunity for our community to grow together. With the assistance of District 5, Westside High School students, Anderson Mall will dedicate the murals to the community and the city of Anderson”.
Anderson Mall wanted this artwork to be highly visible to the community and guests. Because of that, the murals are planned to go on the main entrance wall facing Clemson Blvd. Anderson Mall sees this as an opportunity to expand the project further by utilizing 28 parking spaces that will house 28 community partners and will showcase their company’s logo and design. These murals will bring a sense of unity to Anderson. Anderson Mall has worked closely with Patro to create a plan for artwork that will inspire the community. The concept represents community, togetherness, and a sense of belonging.
The City of Anderson will also dedicate a parking space to Martin Luther King, Jr. “Let us live together in peace and love in a beloved community,” Martin Luther King, Jr.
