Bassmaster Classic

Are we getting excited yet ?  Go Charles Sim go !!!!


B.A.S.S. looked into enhancing its LIVE franchise for the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro, and one surefire improvement was offering more of a good thing.

Bassmaster Classic LIVE is increasing its coverage to 6 hours each of the three competition days, March 4-6, from 7:30 a.m. CT to 1:30 p.m. CT.

Tommy Sanders and Mark Zona will host the shows from the B.A.S.S. booth at the Classic Outdoors Expo in Tulsa’s Cox Business Center.

Davy Hite, the 1999 Classic champion, will serve as guest host, and tournament emcee Dave Mercer will provide reports from around the Expo. There will be variety of guest anglers and celebrities, including Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison.

Out on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, cameras will be in several anglers’ boats to cover their day on the water, and Robbie Floyd will roam the lake providing live reports.

Do’s and Don’ts of Tournament Competition


I strived to be aware of my decisions on the water — both good and bad — to figure out what worked and what didn’t for me on the Elite Series. While I learned to repeat the good decisions that led to strong finishes, I didn’t pay close enough attention to the bad ones. Often, I waited until after the tournament — or worse, the season — ended to reflect back on my poor decisions.

By then, it was too late.

If I had learned to spot and correct my mistakes daily, I might still be competing on the Bassmaster Elite Series.

Here are my do’s and don’ts for competing at the highest level of the sport.

Head on over here for the list
