This year B.A.S.S. aka the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society turns 50 and this weekend (March 16-18) is B.A.S.S.’s fishing tournament of fishing tournaments, the Bassmaster Classic. It’ll take place in Greenville, South Carolina. Thousands of fans will gather each evening to see fishermen who qualified for the tournament have the bass they caught that day officially weighed before they let the bass go back into Lake Hartwell.
For a half century this organization has gotten millions of people outside as it fought to clean up America’s waters and to restore healthy fish populations in streams and lakes across North America. As sportsmen have long done, they’ve accomplished real and practical things to improve the environment and to bring families together in wholesome outdoor recreation.
