Forrest Wood Cup

The 14th annual Forrest Wood Cup, also known as "the preeminent world championship of bass fishing", is taking place in Pittsburgh this weekend, beginning on July 30. FLW Outdoors spokesman Jeff McCoy says there are a total of 154 competitors in two categories, professional angler and amateur angler. He says the championship is going to have a two-day preliminary session and a two-day final event. On July 30 and 31, the championship will include all competitors, and the top 10 in each category with the heaviest catches will go on to the final round in regulation boats on August 1 and 2. The second round will be what counts toward the $1 million grand prize. Since increasing the grand prize to $1 million in 2007, more than 60,000 attendees over the four-day tournament have shown up each year.
