Southwestern Indiana Bass Classic
The Southwestern Indiana Bass Classic presented by Coors, is finally upon us. We’d love to invite you out to the Angel Mound Boat Ramp on Saturday, September 20th to watch the anglers battle for the ultimate bass — and the grand prize of $1,000.
Dozens of anglers will descend on the Ohio River to try to snag that big bass and get big payouts in the process. The overall winner will receive $1000, second place will receive $500, and the biggest bass to be caught that day will win $500.
Register now! It’s $100 per boat with a max of 2 anglers per boat.
The fun begins at 7am with the weigh in at 3pm.
We’ll see you out there!
