TULSA, Okla. — After 4.5 million viewers enjoyed live coverage of the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Classic presented by Jockey Outdoors on FOX, FS1 and the FOX Sports platforms in 2023, fans eager for up-to-the-minute coverage of this year’s Classic action will have ample opportunity to follow the year’s premier bass fishing event.

 

Before anglers take off on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees for competition March 22-24, the Classic LIVE Preview show on Tuesday, March 19, will feature an in-depth look at the anglers and conditions from the lake as well as predictions on who could take home the coveted Bassmaster Classic Ray Scott trophy.

 

Bassmaster LIVE kicks off tournament coverage Friday morning at 8 a.m. ET on Bassmaster.com and the FOX Sports digital platforms. FS1 will broadcast live with the tournament leaders on Saturday and Sunday mornings before afternoon action from Championship Sunday picks up on FOX.

 

“Championship Sunday at the Bassmaster Classic is the pinnacle of a professional angler’s career, and watching the drama unfold live is the next best thing to being there for fans of the sport,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Chase Anderson. “Our FOX Sports partnership has allowed us to reach a whole new fan base over the past three seasons. We’re also able to bring Bassmaster LIVE to the largest possible audience by broadcasting on FOX to show the action leading up to the crowning of a Classic champion. The story of the Classic unfolding is a must-see for casual viewers and devoted fans alike.”

 

Later Sunday night, a special Super Six highlight show will recap the Classic’s iconic winning moments.

 

While the Bassmaster LIVE team covers the leaders on FOX and FS1, viewers can also join Bass Fishing Hall of Fame journalist Steve Bowman and a stable of Elite Series anglers and fishing legends — including Rick ClunnBill Dance and Hank Parker — for LIVE Mix streaming on Bassmaster.com.

 

Daily weigh-in festivities can be streamed on Bassmaster.com beginning at approximately 6 p.m ET.
