FAIRMONT - The Old Milwaukee Bass Nation Divisionals will kick off this week.

The Mid-Atlantic Tournament is hosted in a different state each year. The tournament starts on Wednesday, June 17, on the Monongahela River at Palatine Park. Hundreds of people are expected to visit and fish at the event. Teams from six states will participate.  This event is a qualifier for the big tournament that most anglers hope to attend.

"The second tournament, and what most anglers are here for, is this is one of the only ways that an amateur angler can make it to the Bassmaster Classic."

The tournament starts Wednesday, June 17, and continues through Friday, June 19.
