Happy Birthday, Ray Scott

Aug 23, 2013

Ray W. Scott turns 80 years old Saturday, Aug. 24. In observing this milestone, I think it’s appropriate to celebrate the evolution of the sport of bass fishing and Scott’s impact on it. Born Aug. 23, 1933, in Montgomery, Ala., Scott was just 33 years old when he got the wild idea to hold a big-time, high-stakes bass fishing tournament on Beaver Lake, Arkansas. He was 34 when he began organizing the bass fishermen of America into a cohesive, powerful force for the good of the sport. He called his group B.A.S.S., the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society.
