Win a Trip to the Bassmaster Classic

Bucks Falcon Mercury

One lucky fan and a companion will win a trip to Alabama for the Bassmaster Classic on the state’s largest bass lake, 69,100-acre Guntersville, which stretches 75 miles along the course of the Tennessee River. The lake is famed for producing quality bass, including plenty of 8- to 10-pounders.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In February 2013, fishing fans hailed a new hero as Cliff Pace of Petal, Miss., won the Bassmaster Classic, the “Super Bowl” of bass fishing, after bringing the heaviest bass to the scales during three days of competition in Tulsa, Okla. This year, as those same fans of Bassmaster’s highly skilled anglers look on, a new field of 50-plus fishermen will vie for the top prize in bass fishing, and two lucky fans will be there in person to see a new champion crowned.

Birmingham is headquarters for B.A.S.S. and the site of the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, which will be held on Lake Guntersville, Feb. 21-23, 2014. It’s also the destination for the grand prize winner of the Bassmaster Classic VIP Sweepstakes presented by the Alabama Bass Trail.

Between now and Oct. 31, 2013, bass fishing fans can go online to and register to win a trip for two to the 2014 Bassmaster Classic in Birmingham. The trip begins Feb. 20 and ends Feb. 24. The prize package includes hotel accommodations for four nights, local transportation, VIP seating at the weigh-ins and special access to the Bassmaster Classic Expo.

In addition, the grand prize winner will receive $1,000 cash and special promotional items from the Alabama Bass Trail (ABT). The ABT received the state’s Tourism Partnership Award in August and was created to promote recreational and competitive bass fishing on key reservoirs and rivers throughout the state.

There’s no better time to visit Birmingham than during the 2014 Bassmaster Classic and no better way to see bass fishing’s finest than as the grand prize winner of the VIP Sweepstakes presented by the ABT. Click here to enter.
