Partners are raving:
“We are very honored to partner with Bassmaster and serve as the title sponsor for the 2024 Bassmaster Classic. Some of my happiest memories in life were competing on the tournament trail and creating many special, life long friendships. I feel very blessed to have spent my entire life in and around the great sport of fishing and to have had the opportunity to serve fellow anglers. I am forever grateful to Ray Scott, for without him and his B.A.S.S. Tournament Trail, Bass Pro Shops would have never happened."
— Johnny Morris, five-time Classic qualifier, noted conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops
“Skeeter was so excited to introduce the new ZXR 20 and 21 models for 2021! We had 10 boats in our booth and they all went home with dealers, so that they could get them prepped for their new owners, how exciting is that!!! The 50th Bassmaster Classic was one of the busiest Classics I have seen in a long time, all three days of the Classic our booth was busy with folks looking at our new boats. So we had a lot to be proud of at the 50th Bassmaster Classic, and we wanted to show everyone that Skeeter is always, Setting the Standard!”
— JoAnne OBryant, Marketing Manager, Skeeter Products
“We used Bassmaster to launch our new product line because we had access to tens of thousands of our target customers. Our booth was slammed each day. It made an impact for our brand.”
— Ryan Lilly, Brand Evangelist for Johnson Outdoors, Watercraft Division
"The crowd at the Outdoor Expo during the 50th Bassmaster Classic was impressive. Over 2,000 advocated to protect our rights as anglers through Let America Fish and 60+ anglers signed up to participate in Yamaha's new Power Pay contingency program. Everyone in the booth also had the opportunity to meet professional Yamaha anglers and get a look at Yamaha's full line of outboards. It was a great experience, and we look forward to the 2021 Bassmaster Classic."
— Dale Barnes, Division Manager, Yamaha Marine Marketing
"We went into the Classic Expo with a sales goal of $150,000 and we blew that number out of the water — doing more than double that. It was, by far, the biggest off-site sales event we have had in our 40-year history."
— John Norris, Fishing Department Manager, Mark's Outdoors
