I was lucky that they held one here in Pittsburgh before they changed the time. Pretty cool meeting all those Pro's. Glad you had a great time.

That's awesome James, looks like you had a good time.

I got to go for a little while to the B'ham Classic a few years ago and it was a good time fo sho! Other than still wondering what Tim Horton was talking about and being kinda rude to Ish Monroe, it was all good.

WOW!

Now those are some trophies.
I'm a little jealous.
You got yourself some memories of a lifetime.
Some of the biggest names in fishing.

Three legends of the sport!

Thanks for the share James!

Bassinbandit and I were at that one. Van Dam won with like 12 or 13 lbs If I can remeber. We also went to one that at Lake Wylie that Omori won and Lake Hartwell that Jones won. Awesome to see.

KVD won the 2005 classic in Pittsburgh with 12lb 15oz, finishing just 6oz ahead of Aaron Martens. Complete results are here.

I'm guessing they'll never ever go back to Three Rivers! Unless they changed the rules in 05 how in the world did the pro's manage such low weights? I mean it looks like they must have caught only 3 or 4 or 5 keepers total over 3 days.............good grief

James I got to tell you thanks again.

I don't know but there's something special seeing a young man with those old time Legends.

Then with the young guns and a true SPOKESMAN for our sport.

Wow, great share.

This was the 3rd Classic I have been to, and the 2nd in a row. It was awesome watching these guys wreck them on my home lake.
