Seth Fieder at 2017 BanquetJanuary 14, 2017
Over 170 people joined us and B.A.S.S. Elite Seth Fieder for the Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation Banquet - Presented by Classic Bass.
2016 Classic Bass Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament of Champions presented by RapalaMINNEAPOLIS, MN – August 29, 2016 - Starting on Labor Day weekend, just under 200 anglers will arrive in the Minneapolis area to practice and prepare for the Classic Bass Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament of Champions (TOC) presented by Rapala on Lake Minnetonka on September 8th and 9th. These 190 anglers have qualified from their local clubs, representing 33 clubs from all over Minnesota. Anglers come from all over the state for many reasons; foremost is the camaraderie of fellow anglers and secondly to qualify for the 2017 B.A.S.S. Central Regional. The top 20 anglers from the TOC will advance next year to fish against other State Teams from the central United States in spring of 2017. At stake there is a chance to fish in the B.A.S.S. Nation National Championship and become one step closer to a Bassmasters' Classic berth.
The Wednesday night meeting will be held at Medina Ballroom. A silent auction will raise money for Shriner's Children's Hospital - Twin Citties. Donations include gift certificates, tackle boxes, rods, reels, and tackle. "We are excited to have one of the largest TOCs in over 10 years. Medina Ballroom has been a great sponsor and is providing us with an excellent meeting location not only for TOC but throughout the year. Lord Fletcher's will provide us with an excellent weigh-in location right on Minnetonka. Join us for the weigh-in there and have some food and beverages" says Peter Perovich, Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation President. "We are proud to have Classic Bass as our title sponsor and Rapala as our presenting sponsor for our new Pro-Am format. Also we appreciate the support we get from Skeeter Boats, Boat World MN, Frankie's Marine, MinnKota, Hummingbird, Lamiglas, Rod Glove, and Vexilar.". Join us at Lord Fletcher's in Spring Park, MN September 8th and 9th for the weigh-in. Weigh-in will be at 3pm each day. Awards presentation will follow at 5:30pm on Friday.
