Nation Qualifier at Arkansas River presented by Lowrance, in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This year’s qualifier is sponsored by Port Muskogee and Visit Muskogee.

“The Muskogee Tourism Authority (MTA) competed to host this regional tournament through a competitive bidding process, and we are honored to be selected as the host for this Regional tournament,” said Muskogee Tourism Authority Director of Tourism Tammye Howell. “We expect this tournament to attract thousands of tourists to the Muskogee community to eat, shop, stay, and play.”

“We are more than thrilled to have Bassmaster Nation Series return to Muskogee. Three Rivers, Arkansas river in particular, continues to be the perfect location for the qualifier series in Muskogee, Oklahoma,” said Muskogee Mayor Marlon Coleman. “We believe this gives Muskogee the opportunity to be considered to host the national and international tournaments as well.”
