On its Facebook page, Strike King Lure Co. will be providing extra coverage of the seven Strike King-sponsored bass anglers fishing the Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville, Ala., later this month.
“At the Classic we’ll have on-the-water and on-land information from Kevin VanDam, Todd Faircloth and all our pros,” said Strike King marketing manager Mark Copley. “We’re doing this because our guys and our baits have a ton of fans, and we want to give those fans a ringside seat at the biggest bass fishing tournament in the world.”
Strike King’s Bassmaster Classic coverage will start seven days before the Classic, with a pro a day talking about what he expects at Guntersville and what baits he’ll be throwing.
At the Classic, each Strike King pro will be followed no matter where they are in the standings, and fans will be able to see their favorite pros as they navigate the ups and downs of the high-pressure, all-or-nothing Classic.
“We’re excited to do this, and can’t wait to see it all unfold,” Copley said.
