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?

GREENVILLE, S.C. — After one day of fishing on Lake Hartwell, the leaderboard for the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods has a familiar look.
Oklahoma angler Jason Christie leads the way, with Edwin Evers — a fellow Okie and Christie’s roommate on the Bassmaster Elite Series — sitting close behind in second.
Christie said a change in strategy near the mid-point of Day 1 helped him to his tournament-best weight of 20 pounds, 14 ounces.
