It was a chilly morning at the Wolf Creek Park launch ramp Friday morning, but nothing compared to the last time Grand Lake hosted the Bassmaster Classic. Thousands of fans jammed the ramp this morning to get a glimpse of the 55 anglers before they set off across Grand.

A spectacular sunrise and little to no wind made for a picturesque start to the competition.
