More anglers head out to the big lake.

Tournament Director Trip Weldon announced today the order that competitors will begin their quest for the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic.

Fifty-five boats will launch from Wolf Creek Park in Grove, Okla., on March 4, 2016, in hopes of winning bass fishing's most prestigious prize.

The first boat out will be the reigning Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year, Aaron Martens. The second boat belongs to last year's Classic champion, Casey Ashley. The rest of the boats were drawn in random order by a B.A.S.S. employee this morning.
