Major League Fishing (MLF) is bringing one of the 2024 Tackle Warehouse Invitational Tournaments to West Point Lake March 1-3.
As the second stop in the MLF Invitational Tournament 2024 schedule, this event will showcase more than 130 of the best anglers in the world. Including the LaGrange stop, these anglers will be competing for hundreds of thousands of dollars across some of the top bass fisheries in the United States.
“We are delighted that West Point Lake was chosen as a Major League Fishing tournament site. We hope that residents and visitors alike will come to the Lake for morning takeoffs and afternoon weigh-ins,” said Kathryn Tilley, president/CEO of Visit LaGrange, Inc., in a press release. “We look forward to sharing our beautiful city with this prestigious fishing community.”
In the six MLF Tackle Warehouse Invitationals, anglers will compete over three days in a five-fish, weigh-in format. In addition to lucrative prize money, the winner of each will receive an invitation to compete in REDCREST 2025, MLF’s most prestigious tournament.
The Invitational Angler of the Year (AOY) will also earn a berth into REDCREST 2025.“Our team has compiled a fantastic schedule for 2024 with a lineup of premier fisheries and intense competition,” said Kevin Hunt, MLF Senior Tournament Director. “Our carefully selected venues promise to deliver big limits, intense showdowns and unforgettable moments. We are excited to see who will rise to the challenge and etch their names in angling history.”

West Point Lake is surrounded by deep forests and rolling fields and is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The lake extends 35 miles along the Chattahoochee River on the Alabama-Georgia state line. The lake’s 525 miles of shoreline provide excellent opportunities for fishing, camping, boating, and other recreational activities.
Around the lake are day use parks, campgrounds, two commercial marinas, beach areas, fishing piers and public hunting areas. Most of the parks have picnic shelters, boat launching ramps with courtesy docks, nature trails, and great access to the lake for fishing.
