The 2010 Bass Pro Shops Spring Classic in Destin will take place February 27-March 13, 2010. Both weekends, I will be at the Bass Pro Shops reel counter assisting anglers and Bass Pro employees with Pure Fishing reels, rods, Gulp! baits, superlines, fluorocarbon, etc. We also have some Redfish University seminars planned. Here’s a list of the Pure Fishing promotions we will be offering during the Spring Classic. Thanks, Eric Holstman
