Oklahoma's biggest bass tournament ever --- the Bassmaster Classic --- is set for Feb. 22-24 at Grand Lake and Tulsa.
At that time of year, conditions could be wintry --- below freezing with snow and sleet --- or balmy --- 70 degrees and sunny. Odds suggest weather will be closer to the latter than the former.
Either way, anglers across the nation who know little about the great bass fishing in Oklahoma will get a televised look at one of the best lakes around. In fact, it is arguably the best "non-grass" fishery in the country. Despite its age, it continues to yield strings of 4- and 5-pound fish.
For a preview of the fishing at Grand and insights from some of the Classic competitors, check out this video.
