Only three competition days separate 113 anglers from three berths in the 2017 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro.
Those three days come next month, Nov. 17-19, on Texas’ Lake Conroe, the same fishery where the Classic will take place.
The 113 anglers hail from all over the world. A boater and a nonboater from each of 47 states and nine countries will join last year’s defending champion, Albert Collins of Texas, and the Paralyzed Veterans Association Tour’s Angler of the Year, Kurt Glass.
The Top 3 out of the 113-angler field will earn a coveted spot in the 2017 Classic. What follows are bios of the 113 anglers who qualified to compete on Conroe in November.
