2011 Bassmaster Classic Qualifiers List
« on: January 29, 2011, 10:21:15 PM »

An FYI for who qualified and how for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic coming up in February 18-20 on the Louisiana Delta.

The 50-angler field is highlighted by reigning Bassmaster Classic and Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year champion Kevin VanDam. The Kalamazoo, Mich., fisherman, who won his first Bassmaster Classic in 2001 on the Louisiana Delta, is only the second angler in B.A.S.S. history to hold both the Classic and Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year titles simultaneously. He now owns three Classic and six AOY titles.

Also qualifying for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic:

    * The top 36 anglers in the 2010 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings derived from the 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series.
    * The top two anglers in Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Open Series points standings in each of three 2010 Opens Divisions.
    * Six amateur competitors through the 2010 Bassmaster Federation Nation Championship presented by Yamaha and Skeeter Boats.

The full list of competitors can be found below.

"The Bassmaster Classic is the most prestigious fishing tournament in the world," said Jerry McKinnis, an owner of B.A.S.S. "We are excited that New Orleans will serve as host for the 41st Classic."

The competition will feature daily launches Feb. 18-20 at Bayou Segnette State Park. Daily weigh-ins will take place at the New Orleans Arena, and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will host the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo presented by Dick's Sporting Goods.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
