Fishing Classic

Walley Marshall, Mr. Crappie(Bossier City, LA) Bass Pro Shops put on a fabulous show at the 2005 Spring Fishing Classic February 12-20, 2005 here in Bossier City. This was a must see for all bass fishing enthusiasts with seminars for the willing to learn and great sale prices for those of you that are shoppers, everyone was able to find a little something at Bass Pro. With names like Jimmy Houston, Dean Rojas, Edwin Evers and Mr. Crappie on the marquee it is hard to pass up a day learning about bass fishing, talking with fishing buddies, and looking at all of the baits and equipment there is to be offered at Bass Pro. Mike and I spent a good part of the day at our local Bass Pro Shops on Saturday. We were lucky enough to meet some of the guest speakers and run into many friends along the way.

Even the little ones got involved in the shopping at Bass Pro TodayWe spent a god amount of time at the reel counter where we talked with Penny Barryman and some of the other Pros on hand that day. While we were talking to local Caddo Lake Guide Paul Keith I happened to see that even the little ones were spending the day with their shopping basket. This one in particular had hers full of supplies for her next fishing trip.
