Some of the nation’s top bass pros will square off next month on Lake Palestine in East Texas following a recent scheduling shift by Major League Fishing’s Bass Pro Tour.

On Dec. 22, MLF announced the league’s year-end championship — REDCREST 2021 — will be held Feb. 21-25 on the 25,560-acre fishery near Tyler. The five-day BPT championship was originally scheduled for Feb. 23-27 on Grand Lake in Oklahoma.
