In 2000, the Bass Classic got its start.  Teams of professional bass anglers and their amateur partners compete for cash and prizes on the Aqua Ohio bass-filled reservoirs.  The competition pairs top pro bass anglers with amateur anglers who make a donation to the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.  This a great opportunity for amateurs to fish on a fully-tournament rigged bass boat operated by an experienced angler who shares the ins-and-outs of bass fishing.

In 2016, tournament volunteers introduced a new format based off of Major League Fishing. Each Pro/Am team were joined by a volunteer judge who weighed every eligible Bass, and then released it back into the waters.  All the weight was recorded on a web based site created special for the Muransky Companies Bass Classic hosted by Aqua Ohio.  In 2018, Fin Feather Fur is the sponsor of the Action Tally Scoring System.  We had 53 teams take to the waters of Evans and Pine lakes.  Congrats to all the winners!

Our Annual Mixer, a dinner the night before the tournament that gives all participants a chance to meet and mingle, is sponsored by The Vineyards at Pine Lake.
