Best Images from Day 1 of the Bassmaster Classic Expo

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama— Day one of the 2014 Bassmaster Classic Expo is in the books. So what’s the scene like down in Birmingham?

To put it mildly, it’s a party. The Bassmaster Classic Expo is the tailgating event for the biggest game in bass fishing all year. And since the Bassmaster Classic is the World Championship, would you expect anything less than the industry leaders pulling out all the stops? From restored, vintage bass boats to ground-breaking new lures and equipment this expo has it all.

Major brands like Berkley, Toyota, Bass Pro Shops, GoPro, Costa, Shakespeare and more have gone big this year; but there is plenty to see from mid-size booths like Lew’s, Frabill, Strike King, Daiwa and Garmin as well. Even smaller booths like Yo-Zuri and Mustad have gotten in on the act this year with some well-done, interactive experiences.
