D&R Sports Center in Kalamazoo has created the College Bass Tour in Michigan for college anglers.
The four-event team tournament schedule is open to collegiate anglers under the age of 28. Annual memberships are $40 per angler and tournament entry fees are $60.
Six individuals who have helped make the black bass America’s most popular game fish have been selected for induction into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, the Hall’s board of directors announced today.
The Class of 2018, which will be inducted in ceremonies at Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium in Springfield on September 27, 2-018, includes two stars of professional bass fishing — Kevin VanDam of Kalamazoo, Mich., and Gary Klein of Mingus, Texas — and four leaders from the sportfishing industry and its media.
Beneath the surface, things rarely match the imagination. Consider the waterscape beneath a boat dock. Any idea what’s down there? Nope, but sure would like to know. What about that big sunken tree you’ve tried to fish? Who knows what might be living in that snag-infested thing. Any bass below that patch of lily pads? Crappies hiding in the cabbage?

Once again, Jason Christie is on the verge of winning the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods.
And once again, his good friend — and occasional nemesis — Edwin Evers, has a chance to take it away from him.
The Oklahoma anglers occupied the Top 2 spots in the standings for the second straight day at Lake Hartwell, and they will lead the remaining 23 anglers into Championship Sunday with a chance to win the $300,000 first-place prize and the most coveted trophy in professional bass fishing.
Christie caught 16-6 during Saturday’s second round to push his two-day total to a tournament-best 37-4. Evers had a much tougher day than he did on Friday, landing only 13-0. But he remained in second place with a two-day mark of 32-9.
“It was the same deal today where you just had to weed through them until you found a good one,” said Christie, who also led the first two days of the 2016 Classic on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, only to lose the title to Evers on the final day. “I had a chance to have a really good day, but I lost some fish. I don’t know if it was the lightning we had this morning or if the water’s clearing up or what, but they’re biting funny.”
