      Florence County prepares for Badwater Bash

      Florence County is getting ready for their Badwater Bash and Bass Tournament. This is the second year for the tournament.

      It takes place on the Twin Falls flowage in Florence County. Up to 75 registered boats are allowed for the July 12 event.

      Both Michigan and Wisconsin licenses are permitted. There's also live music and food vendors.

      "Seventy-five dollars per boat is the cost. With the 75 boat maximum, we can have as much as a $5,500 dollar pot," says Wendy Gehlhoff of Florence County Economic Development. "We're guaranteeing a $2,000 cash pot, so first place through fifth place will get some pretty good cash prizes this year."

      Registration can be found at the Florence County Visitor's Center or at their website .
