In every respect, the 1984 Bassmaster Classic must be considered one of the premier fishing events of all-time. The 14th annual Classic was held Aug. 16-18, 1984, on the Arkansas River.
Two future presidents of the United States assisted at the weigh-in, and several Classic records were broken.
By 1984 Rick Clunn was no stranger to Bassmaster Classic success.
Joe Mosby is the former Outdoors Editor of the Arkansas Gazette. He held that position for more than 30 years. In that time, he covered 26 Bassmaster Classics from 1974 to 1999.
