JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) An upcoming bass tournament will benefit the homeless animals at the Washington County/ Johnson City Animal Shelter.

There is a $1,000 first prize sponsored by FC Title, LLC.
The entry fee is $100 per boat with a two person max. Lunch will also be provided with a small donation and swag bags to all participants.
There is a five bass limit. Other specifications include largemouth 15-inch minimum, smallmouth 15-inch minimum, and spotted 12-inch minimum.
