St. Lawrence River and Massena Selected to Host Major League Fishing’s Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit TITLE Championship in 2022
ORLANDO, Fla. (July 22, 2021) – As many of the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit anglers start to arrive in Massena in preparation for next week’s tournament held on the St. Lawrence River, they might want to go ahead and make their hotel reservations for next year.
Major League Fishing (MLF), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced Thursday the schedule for the 2022 Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit at a live press event held at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) tradeshow in Orlando, Florida.
The St. Lawrence River was selected to host the 2022 Pro Circuit TITLE Championship, a prestigious event that will feature just the top 50 anglers of the season for professional bass fishing’s premier five-fish limit circuit. The event, hosted by the Town of Massena, will take place Aug. 16-21, 2022 in Massena, New York.
“The Town of Massena is excited and proud to be selected for the 2022 Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit TITLE Championship,” said Don Meissner, Massena Tourism Promoter. “After years of working to promote our community, Massena is now being recognized as one of the most beautiful fishing destinations in the United States. On behalf of all of the communities in the North Country, we can’t wait to host the TITLE anglers that will visit us in upstate New York.”
The 27th season of the MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit (formerly FLW Tour) will feature six regular-season stops showcasing the best anglers in the world competing for thousands of dollars across the best bass fisheries in the United States. The 2022 season will culminate with the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit TITLE, in which 50 anglers will qualify – the top 48 finishers in the Pro Circuit Angler of the Year standings along with the reigning 2021 TITLE Champion and the 2021 Angler of the Year.
