I have been on the phone for the last few days calling as many anglers as I can in regards to our first event coming up January 14th and 15th at Lake Shasta. We are very pleased to announce that we have already generated a list of anglers that tops the halfway point to a full field with weeks to go. I want to thank all those anglers who supported Won Bass in 2011, and am very excited to get the new season underway. Our 2012 Western Classic is scheduled for October 27th and 28th at Clear Lake. The time is now.... So get entered to win and join in on the fun.
