There are six Bassmaster Classic spots and one invitation to the Bassmaster Elite Series up for grabs at this week’s B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. This is a big tournament —as big as it gets for amateur anglers. It was this tournament that started my love for competitive bass fishing. In April of 1998, my dad took my brother, Jordan, and me to the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship in Knoxville, Tenn.
