Bassmaster 2022 venue revealed – and it’s a return to an old favourite
Next year’s Bassmaster Classic will be returning to Lake Hartwell, near Greenville, South Carolina, for the fourth time in its history.
It was announced this week that the 2022 Academy Sports+Outdoors Bassmaster Classic, presented by Huk, will take place between March 4th and 6th, alongside the Outdoors Classic Expo, which will be staged in the Greenville Convention Center.
B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin said: “Everything about Lake Hartwell and the city of Greenville make them the perfect setting for the Super Bowl of professional bass fishing. The Classic is not only a chance for the best anglers in the world to showcase their abilities, but an annual celebration of the sport itself.”
“We are very excited for the opportunity to host the Bassmaster Classic once again on Lake Hartwell,” said Neil Paul, Executive Director of Visit Anderson. “The leadership of Anderson County has made a significant commitment to Green Pond Landing and the marketing efforts of Lake Hartwell, and we expect another record-breaking event with our team-mates from Greenville.
“Hosting our fourth Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell is significant to our community because no other fishery will have hosted more Bassmaster Classic events. Having hosted this great event in the past, we can speak first hand to the significant economic impact it will have on the Upstate of South Carolina and the impact of residual tourism that will be felt in Anderson County for years to come.”
