RE: B.A.S.S. changes 30,000 B.A.S.S. Nation members get 3 Bassmaster Classic spots, down from 6 spots. That's 1 for each 10,000 members fishing their way through club then state then divisional then national level competition. Buying new boats and tackle and everything else along the way. Then B.A.S.S. comes up with a new format for 2016 where 8 pros fish out of Buffalo, N.Y., for 1 Classic spot. This is slap in the face to the thousands of B.A.S.S. Nation anglers that support the sport and organization. But we all will still fight and claw our way through the tournaments buying fishing stuff and dreaming of one day making it to the Bassmaster Classic.
