The Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series Regional Championships are coming to Shreveport’s Red River South Marina this Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15. Anglers from Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky will compete in hopes of moving on to compete in the National Championship and the Bassmaster Classic, which will be held in Shreveport-Bossier on February 24-26, 2012. Described by organizers as “the weekend angler’s path to the Bassmaster Classic,” the Weekend Series is operated by American Bass Anglers. This series of 105 tournaments will send one overall champion to compete in the Bassmaster Classic, and that champion may very well be one of the regional winners fishing on the Red River this weekend. In my opinion, the drama of this event is pretty incredible – it could all end in a weekend fisherman being sent to the sport’s largest annual event.
Weigh-ins, which are open to the public, will take place at 3 p.m. each day of the tournament at Red River South Marina.
