Each day, the suspense builds, as potential lottery sized fortunes change hands with a tip of the scale. It’s a terrific way to spend a few exciting hours in Knoxville, celebrating the best in the bass-fishing business. Doors open to the arena for B.A.S.S. Life and Nation members at 3 p.m. and to the general public at 3:15 p.m. Taking part in pro bass history is priceless!
