There’s so much more to The Bassmaster Classic than the tournament. This event also includes one of the largest Outdoors Expos in the industry! And not only is the “World Champion” of professional bass fishing crowned, the High School and College Series team championships were decided last weekend as well.


The 2024 Strike King Bassmaster High School Classic was won by the Louisiana Bossier Parish Bass Team of Carsen Adcock & Jase White! Neither had fished Keystone Lake before establishing a pattern early and riding it to the top with a Saturday 5-fish limit weighing 19lbs 12ozs! The University of Montevallo team of Tyler Cory and Scott Sledge emerged victorious with the five-bass, 22lb limit from Keystone Lake to take the Strike King Bassmaster College Classic championship presented by Bass Pro Shops.

Recognized as fishing’s biggest consumer shows, the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo presented by GSM Outdoors had more than 200 exhibitors from all over the world! During the 3 days of the Classic fans got to wander the giant  Cox Business Convention Center and check out boats, lures, tackle, and much, much more! It was amazing to see all this great outdoor stuff under one roof! Don’t forget, if you love fishing check out my Ozarks Outdoors podcast!
