The Grand Lake Extravaganza is the World’s Largest Tagged Bass Event and it takes place right here, on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ the Cherokee, from April 1st to May 18th, 2014.
To participate and have a chance to win you MUST have purchased an Extravaganza Badge for $20 BEFORE you catch a prize winning fish.
Complete details, official rules and online entry can be found at the official website – here.
Keep in mind that if you are entering online, it will take a few days for you to receive your badge in the mail. However, there are local sporting goods stores around Grand Lake where you can also purchase the Grand Lake Extravaganza Badges.
And, you must have a valid Oklahoma fishing license and those can be purchased online as well. More information on that is available here at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation website.
Also, keep in mind that there are certain steps you MUST TAKE if you catch a tagged bass. Again, instead of explaining them here (and maybe getting them wrong), just go to the official website for details at http://www.grandlakeextravaganza.com or stop by the Grand Lake Association office in the Grand Lake Visitors Center on North Hwy 59 in Grove.
