The Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster Classic Bracket event has expanded from a year ago, and the format has changed. Before the head-to-head matchups begin, there will be a regular tournament format Tuesday from 7:45 a.m. until 4 p.m. Only the top 12 anglers will advance to the brackets, which begin Wednesday. The seeding for those brackets will be determined by the order of finish Tuesday.
There will only be one weigh-in this week, it begins Tuesday at approximately 4:15 p.m. ET at the Doll Mountain Ramp: 1362 Doll Mountain Rd., Ellijay, GA, 30540.
After Tuesday, the Bracket is a catch-weigh-release tournament, so no weigh-ins for the rest of the week.
On Tues. anglers will all leave from the Doll Mountain Ramp at 7:45. On Wed., Thurs. and Fri., fishing begins at 8:00 and anglers can depart the ramp earlier.
This is a four day tournament, Tuesday throught Friday on Carters Lake, Ellijay, Ga. The three bracket winners will each get a berth in the 2019 Bassmaster Classic.
Classic Bracket qualifiers were based on Angler of the Year points.
