The 2018 Catch-A-Dream Bass Classic set new records both for numbers of boat entries/anglers and the net cash proceed! Safe light Sunday morning saw 223 boats and 446 anglers blast off. Over half of those boats brought fish to the scales where we weighed and then released 1,383 lbs of bass back into the Rez. We weighed in 136 boats in 1 hr and 18 minutes (1.74 boats per minute through the scales!) When the dust settled, anglers took home almost $25,000 in cash prizes and the NET Proceed to Catch-A-Dream is a record $60,000! THANKS to ALL our anglers, sponsors, advertisers and volunteers who made this our best Bass Classic to date!
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!
