This week, for Catch a Cure, I was excited to preview one of the most well-known events in the world of fishing, the Bassmaster Classic, being held this year at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, near Tulsa, Okla. I’ve always wondered how these professional anglers turn something as fun as fishing into a living. When there are cash prizes of up to $300,000 on the line, you’d better believe that the B.A.S.S. pros know exactly what they’re doing in a way most of us never will. My trip to fisheries across the country is raising funds for the Melanoma Research Foundation, and you can help, too, at http://events.melanoma.org/catchacure. Click through to see how my trip to Grand Lake went in anticipation of the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro.
