    Jason Williamson finishes 21st in Bassmaster Classic

    Jason Williamson started Day 3 of the 2017 Bassmaster Classic in 12th place, and was the only angler from the Carolinas to make the cut to fish on Championship Sunday. He swung for the fences, knowing he’d need an exceptionally big bag to have a shot at knocking off Brent Ehrler, who led the first two days of the event.

    C-MAP lets you customize inland and coastal mapping

    A bass club member I used to know was hilariously secretive about his tournament fishing. As we watched from the headquarters dock, he would circle around the far side of a lake before returning to weigh-in to hide where he’d been fishing.

    The first day of the 2017 Bassmaster Classic is in the books, and the Lake Conroe venue in Houston, Texas has not been kind to any of the four Carolina anglers participating in the event. None of the four anglers caught a limit of keepers today, and only one sits in the top 20 with two days left to go.

    In February. 

    Luckily, he was camping on the river and wasn’t far from his campsite to which he quickly returned, built a fire, dried off, warmed up and changed into some dry clothes.

    March still offers options

    Prime spring fishing is just around the corner, as mountain streams begin warming up, and brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout become active and hungry, eager to gobble up the abundant spring hatches. It’s a time when anglers enjoy some of the best trout fishing of the year.
