The name says it all: Heavy Hitters is the culmination of a season of the biggest fish caught on the Bass Pro Tour. To qualify for General Tire Heavy Hitters in 2021, the weight of an angler’s single largest bass from each event of the 2020 Bass Pro Tour was recorded. The 40 anglers with the heaviest big-fish totals from those five events qualified for Heavy Hitters in Raleigh, North Carolina (April 9-14).
