Two Bassmaster Classic stages this year

Fans who attend the 41st Bassmaster Classic at the New Orleans Arena will be treated to alternating action on two stages.

The main stage is where the anglers' catches will be weighed each day. It's also where the new Bassmaster Classic emcee Dave Mercer will appear throughout the three-day event.

But this year at various points during the weigh-in, the action will shift to the Hooked Up stage in the center of the arena. There, The Bassmasters hosts Tommy Sanders and Mark Zona will break down the action and interview anglers.
