Its almost time People. The Super Bowl of bass fishing is almost upon us. I’ll be there how about you? Best of all, I’ll be there with one of my best buddies in the world taking in the weigh-ins and Expo portion of the classic. I know that it will be a flat-out zoo, prior too, during and after, as one skilled individuals life will change forever late afternoon on Sunday.
So Where’s the venue??
What is it: 2018 Bassmaster Classic

Where is it: Lake Hartwell, Greenville, South Carolina
Things get started at Green Pond Landing and Event Center in Anderson, South Carolina. The Weigh-ins will occur at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in downtown Greenville and I’ll be a grown man in a candy store at the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo which is being held at the TD Convention Center (its a 250,000 sqft playground).
