It’s Registration day! Pre-registered anglers can check in and grab their bag, credentials, boat# card and Take-A-Steak dinner to go between 4 and 6:30 pm at Bass Pro Shops If you’re not yet registered, you can register on site during the same time period and still get in on the Outback Steakhouse Take-A-Steak dinner. See you there!

2022 Jerseys

Looking for a way to get your hands on one of those 2022 Jerseys without registering for the tournament? We have a Jersey-Only order form available. These are not currently available to ship out, but as soon as they are in the office we will begin mailing them to those who use this form. (If you order your jerseys on the registration form, you can pick those up on Saturday, April 30th at the Bass Pro Shops Drive-Thru Registration Event).

Jersey Design

Here’s a sneak peek at the 2022 jersey sporting a pattern designed exclusively for Catch-A-Dream!  These performance jerseys feature sublimation printing, that won’t crack or fade, and SpeeDee-Dri technology on a cool, antimicrobial, and stain resistant fabric with a 40 UPF rating for safety and comfort. These will be available for pre-order when Registration opens.

In a couple of days something will occur that hasn’t happened in TWO years!

In a couple of days something will occur that hasn’t happened in TWO years! As the sun rises in the eastern sky Sunday morning our friend Kris Carmichael will once again play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes, and as soon as he is finished the engines will start and the Bass Classic will be underway! It’s been a long time, and a year ago we were on lock-down and no one was even allowed on the water! But through the GRACE of The Lord our God we are back! There’s still time to register! https://bassclassic.catchadream.org/registration/

It’s tournament week!

The name is new but it’s still the Catch-A-Dream Bass Classic!  And a week from today, the 2021 Bass Classic will be in the books.  If you’ve not registered, there’s still time!

And if you’re not fishing you may want to take advantage of the Woodmen Life Boston Butt sale  There are only a few left, and all sales go directly to Catch-A-Dream.  Order yours here  https://igfn.us/form/fpNeXA , pick it up hot off the smoker Sunday during the tournament, and enjoy some really great smoked pork for lunch or dinner Sunday!

Online registration remains open until noon on May 1 https://bassclassic.catchadream.org/registration/ .  After that time, registration will be in-person only either at the Registration Event at Bass Pro Shops 4-6:30 pm Saturday May 1 or onsite at the North Goshen (Tommy’s) pavilion Sunday May 2 where the tournament is based.

We do not recommend, that you mail your registration after TODAY Monday, April 26, as we will be heading to Jackson Thursday afternoon and don’t want to miss your form.  And we all know how the mail is these days!

If you’ve already registered, you are good to go until Saturday May 1, when you will need to check in at the Bass Pro Shops parking lot between 4 pm and 6:30 pm to receive your Boat Number, credentials and any jerseys you may have pre-ordered.  Safety teams must present ID to confirm eligibility for this Division.

This will be a “drive through” process for all pre-registered anglers, but we will also offer on-site registration for any who prefer to register in person.  Jerseyswill also be available onsite at Bass Pro Shops while supply lasts – they are going fast!

Regarding Pelahatchie Bay

There have been questions regarding Pelahatchie Bay and what is off limits, etc. Here is the official map from PRVWSD as of today. The areas contained by the yellow containment boom remain off-limits. Boats should stay at least 20 feet from the yellow boom and may not cross the boom or cast across the boom. Let’s all respect these restrictions and do our part to help manage the noxious aquatic vegetation issue.

Whole Smoked Boston Butts

Our friends with the Woodmen Life cooking team, led by Master Chef Mr. Sherrell Breazeale, will be providing whole smoked Boston Butts on a pre-ordered, first-come, first-served basis to be picked up between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm on tournament day (May 2.) They’ll be hot off the smoker that day, and all sales go directly to Catch-A-Dream. Quantities are limited, so reserve yours today. When they’re gone, they’re gone! https://igfn.us/form/fpNeXA
