Bass fisherman have a great opportunity to bid on tackle, lures and gear, tournament pro jerseys, exclusive fishing trips with expert anglers and more in the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame’s online auction presented by Major League Fishing.
It’s easy. Log-in with your smartphone, tablet or computer at https://one.bidpal.net/bfhof/browse/all to access the auction-dedicated website or text BFHOF to 243-725.
The website will be ‘live’ from 9 a.m. EST Friday, Sept. 22 through 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, Sept. 28, the night when many involved in the bass fishing world will be gathered to celebrate the induction of Glen Andrews, Bruce Holt, and Michael Iaconelli into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, located within Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife Aquarium & Museum.
The auction is loaded with tournament jerseys from dozens of pro anglers along with rods, reels, lure assortments and technical clothing, not to mention unique items, experiences and fishing and hunting trips to some premier destinations. Here’s a sampling of what’s up for grabs:
- Fishing trips – alongside noted tournament bass pros or Bass Fishing HOF inductees, to famed waters like Clear Lake, Lake O.H. Ivie, Lake Amistad, Lake Guntersville, Lake Tenkiller, Table Rock Lake, the St. Lawrence River, Lake St. Clair, and Lake Havasu.
- One angler, along with a friend who is so very lucky, will spend a day on the water with the legendary Bill Dance.
- An extremely unique experience fishing and filming with the staff from Wire2fish in northern Minnesota, including dinner with the W2F crew and two-nights lodging at the Timberlake Hotel in Grand Rapids, MN; or how about being the co-host on the popular Bass Talk Live podcast with Matt Pangrac, who then will take you fishing for trophy crappie and send you home with a freezer bag full of cleaned filets.
- Interested in hunting? There’s a black bear trip and turkey hunt in eastern Oklahoma, and even a night-vision ‘Sasquatch Hunt’ with pro angler Greg Hackney at his camp in south Mississippi. You’ll need to log into the ‘Celebrate Bass Fishing Week’ online auction to read all the interesting info on this trip.
