Public weigh-ins for the much-anticipated 2021 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk will be held at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth at 4 p.m. CT Friday through Saturday, June 11-13. The tournament will be fished on Lake Ray Roberts, approximately 50 miles away from the arena. The launch area will be closed to the public and media. Private weigh-ins will be conducted lakeside immediately upon check-in, with all logged weights remaining confidential until the public weigh-in at Dickies Arena. Anglers will be allowed to transport up to two fish back to Dickies Arena, and all other fish will be immediately loaded onto a Yamaha/AFTCO Live Release boat and returned to the fishery. After the public weigh-in at Dickies Arena has concluded, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will transport the fish from Fort Worth back to the fishery. This is done to reduce pressure on the fish in the Texas heat and ensure that they can be safely returned to Ray Roberts for Texas anglers to catch again in the future.
Fans are also encouraged to explore the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, only 10 minutes walking distance from Dickies Arena. The Expo is free to attend and will open to the general public at noon Friday and 10 a.m. CT Saturday and Sunday.
