Bass Classic weekend is almost here

T minus 2 days and counting! Bass Classic weekend is almost here. Online Registration will remain open until noon Saturday May 4 — after that registration must be done in person at Bass Pro Shops 4:30-7:30 Saturday night or at the tournament Pavilion Sunday morning. If you’re already registered remember that one partner must check in Saturday night to get your credentials, etc, or at the Pavilion prior to boat launch Sunday morning.

RAFFLE for a chance to win!

We’ll give away this new Ruger model EC9s right after weigh-in Sunday afternoon! Winner does not have to be present to win…we’ll call you and you can pick up the gun at Bass Pro Shops in Pearl, MS within 48 hours. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the Registration Dinner Saturday night, or at the Pavilion any time Sunday. OR, if you prefer, simply text the keyword EC9 to 91999 and follow the link you’ll receive to purchase raffle tickets online from any mobile device!


We are on the final countdown! If you haven’t registered there is still time but we SUGGEST YOU NOT MAIL the form after today (5/1/2018). We’ll leave for Jackson Thursday so any mail arriving at office Friday will not be received. You can register online through NOON Saturday and in person at Bass Pro Shops Saturday 4:30 til 7:30 pm or at the Pavilion Sunday morning.

4-day countdown

It’s a 4-day countdown to Bass Classic, but there’s still time to register! Online registration is open until 9 pm Saturday, and in-person registration can be done 4:30 – 7:30 pm Saturday at Bass Pro Shops, Pearl (where you can enjoy some great Penn’s catfish!) or at the tourney pavilion Sunday morning. We suggest that you NOT MAIL forms after today, since we cannot assure that we’ll receive them by Friday.

Clarification of Registration

We’ve received a few phone calls, so just to clarify. The Early Bird discounted registration ends at 5 pm today, BUT Registration remains open thru tournament time. You can register online until 9 pm Saturday May 6 at the Regular Registration fee of $150. And, of course, you can register in person at the Registration event at Bass Pro Shops anytime between 4:30 and 7:30 pm on Saturday May 6.

FAQ 3: Registration Dinner Move to Bass Pro Shops

Why did you move the Registration Dinner from the Trademart to Bass Pro Shops, Pearl, MS ?

ANSWER: Several reasons, some based upon past experience, some based upon input from our Angler Survey last summer:

1) Many folks expressed decreasing comfort relative to safety at night in the Trademart/Fairgrounds parking lots
2) The costs for renting the Trademart facilities have increased
3) Attendance and interest during the evening program have decreased
4) The need to “refresh” the Registration event was expressed by many
5) Bass Pro Shops is hosting the event free of charge
6) We can provide a much more family friendly and informal environment at Bass Pro Shops
7) It’s a convenient location for everyone
8) Most everyone makes a stop by Bass Pro Shops right before the tournament anyway!
