Berkley Pros to Compete and Give Seminars at Bassmaster Classic and Bassmaster Outdoors Expo

As the bass fishing world turns its attention to the Academy Sports + Outdoors 2021 Bassmaster Classic, professional bass fishing fans attending the events can expect to see Berkley pros on and off the water. Nine Berkley pros will compete for the Classic title with additional Berkley pros conducting seminars throughout the three-day run of the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo.

Berkley fans who attend the event can cheer on fan-favorite competitors including defending Bassmaster Classic champion Hank Cherry as well as childhood friends John Cox and Keith Carson as they compete for the $300,000 purse on Lake Ray Roberts. Additional Berkley pros competing in the event include Brandon Cobb, Shane LeHew, Bryan New, Luke Palmer, Matt Robertson and Hunter Shryock.

Prior to each day’s Classic weigh in, fans will be able to attend seminars inside the Berkley booth inside the Outdoors Expo conducted by Hank Parker, Jordan Lee and many others, as well as get insights from Berkley scientists who will break down the fish-catching science behind Berkley baits.

Attendees who purchase reels or rod-and-reel combos at the Classic Outdoors Expo can visit the Berkley booth to have those reels spooled for free with leading Berkley monofilament, fluorocarbon or braided line (limit three reels and 1,000 yards max).
