YouTube comedian Ed Bassmaster at Bassmaster Classic

B.A.S.S. is bringing Ed Bassmaster of YouTube fame to the Classic this year to share his impressions of the event online at

A comedian from Philadelphia, Ed Bassmaster is an avid bass fisherman who has never been to a Classic, according to Angie Thompson, B.A.S.S. director of digital content development. "For the past couple of years, we have wanted to show people that there's so much more to the Classic than what you see on TV," Thompson said.

"It's really hard to convey that. We've been playing around with the idea that if we took someone and let them walk around the whole Classic experience, the different venues, with a camera, people could see what it's like. We also realized that would be better if the person was funny."
