I follow this sport because my brother used to fish what was once called the "Red Man" tournament series (sorta the Minor Leagues of Bass Fishing) and my sister-in-law was a Bassin' Gal (and even won a couple of tournaments here and there).
It's hard to believe this is only the second time that the Classic will have been held in South Carolina, especially considering how many lakes there are here (technically, the Lake Wylie tournament in 2005 was hosted by Charlotte, NC).
This should be one very cool event. The tournament will be over on Lake Hartwell. Weigh-ins will be at the Bi-Lo Center (Arena) in Downtown Greenville. The expo will be at the Carolina First (Convention) Center in Greenville. The women's and junior's tournament events will be on Lake Keowee, too.
