49 anglers take off in hopes of capturing the final spot in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
It's a gamble ... a one in 49 chance to go to the big dance on Lake Guntersville in February, and it's basically winner take all!
Multiple pros made lots of moves on Lake St Clair today.
Randy Howell, Jeff Kriet, Hank Cherry and I had a chance to fish with some fans selected by Livingston Lures in their "Fish with a Pro" contest.
Elite Series pros spent time with teens in Waddington, N.Y., during the event.
