The "Mystery Lake" concept is an important part of B.A.S.S.' rich history. The first six Bassmaster Classics were held at mystery locations; Classic qualifiers had boarded a plane en route to the secret fishery before they ever found out where they'd be fishing. In this photo, champagne is served to Classic contenders who will toast the announcement of that year’s secret fishery from 30,000-plus feet in the air.
