1st ever Bassmaster Classic - 1971

Recommended Posts

I posted something about this awhile back, but didn't know the details. I saw a clip on t.v. from this event which was very cool. They all weighed fish in on stringers back then. We have come along way in the sport of bass fishing!

"A jetliner leaves Atlanta Oct. 28 with 24 anglers for the first Bassmaster Classic, destination unknown. The plane reaches cruising altitude, and Ray Scott announces the destination is Las Vegas. At Lake Mead, Bobby Murray wins the first Classic and its $10,000-prize purse. The "mystery flights" end in 1977 to accommodate a growing following."
