Salem, Va. – March 9, 2021 – After having to postpone the 2020 Missile Baits No Entry Fee Tournament on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, Missile Baits is proud to announce a new date of May 14, 2021. The tournament will be held out of Parkway Marina on the Friday before the Angler’s Choice Marine Tournaments on that Saturday and Sunday. Using only Missile Baits soft plastics and Missile Jigs skirted jigs, anglers will be competing for a guaranteed $4,000 total payout with the winning team taking home a guaranteed $2,000.
John Crews, company owner and pro angler, said, “We had really good participation in our tournaments in 2019 but then the COVID put the kibosh on holding our events in 2020. We loved the interaction with our customers and giving people a reason to bass fish. Smith Mountain is in our backyard, so we had to up the payout!”

Anglers will only be able to sign up on the Missile Baits web site for the No Entry Fee Tournament and optional side pot. The tournament weigh in will be streamed live on YouTube and the top 5 finishers will be interviewed for future videos. Anglers may participate in an optional side pot to increase their potential winnings. Participants will not be allowed to have any other brand soft plastics or skirted jigs, bladed jigs, or hard baits in their boat and be subject to random boat searches.

Please read all the rules on the Missile Baits website. Due to evolving COVID regulations in Virginia, Missile Baits will have certain safety procedures to follow. Watch Missile Baits website and social media for updates, more tournament details, and other information as May 14th gets closer.
