Roster revealed for 2024 Tackle Warehouse Invitationals
BENTON, Ky. – Major League Fishing announced today the angler roster for the 2024 Tackle Warehouse Invitationals, the second season of professional bass fishing’s lucrative proving ground for anglers looking to qualify for the Bass Pro Tour. The Invitationals consist of six three-day tournaments that feature a field of 150 anglers competing for a top prize of $115,000 and an invitation to compete at REDCREST 2025 in Huntsville, Alabama.
Of the 150 anglers fishing each Tackle Warehouse Invitational, 137 have committed to compete in all six events. The payout at each Invitational is $652,000, with a total payout of more than $3.9 million for the season.
The roster of anglers fishing all six events in 2024 includes the Bass Pro Tour’s Kelly Jordon of Flint, Texas; Keith Carson of Debary, Florida; Drew Gill of Mount Carmel, Illinois; and Keith Poche of Pike Road, Alabama. They’ll be joined by a stout field of competitors, including Bass Fishing Hall of Famer Paul Elias of Laurel, Mississippi and Shaw Grigsby of Gainesville, Florida, along with former Boston Red Sox player Mike Greenwell, a two-time Major League Baseball All-Star and 1988 American League MVP runner-up, who will be making the jump to compete in the “big leagues” of bass fishing.

Tackle Warehouse Invitational anglers compete over three days in a five-fish, weigh-in format. All 150 anglers compete the first two days, with the top 30 pros advancing to the third and final day. The winner of each Invitational is determined by heaviest three-day cumulative weight. The winner of each of the six Invitationals in 2024 will receive an invitation to compete at REDCREST 2025 at Lake Guntersville in Huntsville, Alabama. Additionally, the season-long Invitational Angler of the Year (AOY) will also earn a berth into REDCREST, for a total of seven qualification opportunities.
Every day of competition will be broadcast live on MLFNOW! and streamed to the Major League Fishing app, MyOutdoorTV (MOTV), and at MajorLeagueFishing.com. Each event will also air on the CBS Sports Network.
