Bassmaster at Green Pond Set for ESPN, Live Streaming

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The 2018 programming schedule for the Bassmaster Classic and Bassmaster Elite Series released by ESPN this week includes 30 hours of television and 222 hours of streamed content during tournament competition.
 
Television airing on ESPN2 begins at 7 a.m. March 31, with the first of 10 hours of coverage of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic at Green Pond Landing, which is being held this week on Lake Hartwell. The Classic championship episode begins at 10 a.m. April 1.
 
Classic LIVE, the live-stream, on-the-water coverage, kicks off at 8 a.m. Thursday, just after the first-round takeoff of the Classic. LIVE will be streamed for six hours per competition day on ESPN3 and the ESPN App, as well as Bassmaster.com.
 
As many as five high-definition cameras — the same ones that record "The Bassmasters" TV show for ESPN2 — are able to stream fishing action real-time through cellphone transmissions.
 
Cell coverage will be even stronger on Lake Hartwell this year than during the two previous Classics in 2008 and 2015, thanks to a 110-foot live-stream tower erected last week at Green Pond Landing and Event Center, site of the daily takeoffs for the Classic.
 
In addition to video from competitors’ boats, LIVE will feature commentary from hosts Tommy Sanders, Mark Zona and Davy Hite, along with reports from Robbie Floyd and Dave Mercer, Classic and Elite Series emcee as well as veteran Elite anglers and guest anglers from the Classic Outdoors Expo presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods.
