In this video Matt and myself head down to Greenville, SC for the 2018 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell. We head down this year to help out Mercury Marine with the handing out of hats and thundesticks (noise makers) Our day begins early in the morning at the launch ramp where we give out hats to the spectators watching the Bassmaster Pros leave for the start of their fishing day. We then head over the Bassmaster Expo and of course attend the weigh ins every day.

We like to have fun and really enjoy the chance to run into various people in the industry and socialize during the biggest tournament in professional bass fishing!

Who is SmallmouthCrush?

Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live…Wisconsin. He started fishing from the bank at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20’s, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite Series for a number of years. He is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass (year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His YouTube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for “how-to” videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!
