Dottie's Marine

We are very excited to make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for the 2017 Bass Classic! This year we will be including “Bonus Bucks” presented by Dottie’s Marine and Bass Cat! Bonus Bucks will be paid as follows: $100 each to the teams that place 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th and 90th and the team that places 100th will earn $500! There is too much at stake not to weigh in any fish, a slow day could still put you in the money! Thanks to Dottie’s Marine and Bass Cat for making “Bonus Bucks” part of this year’s Carl Perkins Bass Classic.

B&H Tackle

B & H Custom Tackle is the prize sponsor for Smallest Limit. $500 will be awarded to the team that weighs in the smallest 5 fish limit each day, so if you aren’t in the hunt for the first place money that limit can still mean a big payday!

Additionally, they will present a $250 gift certificate to the runner-up for the Reverse Draw Boat. Thank you B & H Custom Tackle for your commitment to the Carl Perkins Center and the Carl Perkins Bass Classic!

Friday night, October 11th at 7:00 we will be having an auction at the Fairgrounds. Lots of great items, including hunting and fishing gear, shotguns, clothes, toys, household items and more!
