Bassmaster Elite Series rookie and 2014 Classic favorite Randall Tharp has signed onto the VMC and Trigger X pro-staffs.
GoPro has come on board as a presenting sponsor of the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic, Feb. 21-23, on Lake Guntersville and out of Birmingham, Ala.

Do you think you can walk on water? If you want to test the principle and come out on top, I suggest that you visit the Guntersville area in late February. They’ve got this little fish derby going on, and I suspect that the boats are going to be packed so tight that you’ll be able to walk from the launch ramp to any competitor’s fishing spot without even getting a toe wet.
With Fantasy Fishing ownership split down the middle in buckets A and C, your buckets B and D could be more likely to help you win this year’s Bassmaster Fantasy Fishing contest for the Classic.
