BASS is hoping to once again inspire fledgling youth anglers with this year's Junior Bassmaster World Championship, CastingKids championship and Bassmaster Family Fest, all in conjunction with the 2006 Bassmaster Classic, Feb. 24-26 on Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Fla.
"We're thrilled about this year's roster of talent that will bring up-to the-minute coverage of the Classic to fans at home," said Christine Godleski, vice president and general manager of ESPN Outdoors. "We're starting the season off right with the Classic kick-off and plan to use this momentum to jump start us into the season ahead.
The biggest event in sportfishing is about to begin, the 2006 CITGO Bassmaster Classic.
Sunday's finale of the 2006 CITGO Bassmaster Classic saw four anglers among the top 10 who likely won't return to next year's Bassmaster Classic, as they will be fishing the competing FLW Tour instead of CITGO Bassmaster Elite Series.
Clausen's consistent performance resulted in a record three-day total of 56 pounds, two ounces and earned him victory in the 36th annual Classic.
