Amateur B.A.S.S. Championship Next Week at Green Pond

Amateur bass anglers from the 47 states. and nine foreign nations will compete next week at Green Pond Landing on Hartwell Lake in the Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Nation Championship, presented by Magellan Outdoors. The competition is Oct. 19-21 with the tournament based in Anderson.

What began as an American sport has grown globally through the B.A.S.S. membership, and specifically through the club network known as the B.A.S.S. Nation. The qualifiers advanced through local, state and regional club tournaments to reach the championship.

Joining anglers from 47 states are those from Mexico, Japan, Australia, Portugal, Italy, Zimbabwe, Namibia, the province of Ontario and the Republic of South Africa.

Also on the qualifier list is the Paralyzed Veterans of America champion and defending championship winner Ryan Lavigne of Gonzales, La. The Ascension Area Anglers club member scouted the tournament fishery just prior to the official off-limits period that began in mid-September. 

The Top 3 anglers from the championship advance to the 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods. The Classic is March 16-18 on Lake Hartwell. 

The Top 3 anglers also earn paid entry fees in the division of their choosing for the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens, and use of a B.A.S.S. Nation’s Best Phoenix Boat package for one year.

The Bryan V. Kerchal Memorial Trophy, a Skeeter ZX200 rigged with Yamaha SHO 200 outboard, Minn Kota trolling motor and Lowrance electronics are part of the winner's prize package. The winner also receives a berth in the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series, with $16,000 paid toward the entries.

The runner-up receives a Skeeter TZX190 and Yamaha SHO 150, rigged with the same accessories as the winner’s boat. The nonboater champion receives a Skeeter TZX190 package rigged with those same accessories, paid entries in an Opens division, and a Classic Marshal spot.

A Triton 189 TRX, Yamaha VF150LA and Triton standard equipment will go to the third-place angler. 

Daily launch and takeoff time is 7:30 a.m. The weigh-in begins at 3:45 p.m. Both events will be held at Green Pond Landing and Event Center in Anderson. 

Bassmaster.com will provide extensive coverage of the tournament to include daily stories, videos and photo galleries.
