The Atikokan Bass Classic, August 16 and 17

Atikokan, The Canoeing Capital of the World, is hosting their 26th "Funnest Bass Tournament," the Atikokan Bass Classic, on Friday August 16 and Saturday, August 17, 2013.

Total prize payouts for this year's "Classic" are over $37,000. First Prize is $10,000.

Atikokan, located in Northwest Ontario, is host to not only this Bass Classic, but is also the gateway to some of the most beautiful country in Ontario, Quetico Provincial Park.

I have fished the Atikokan area and paddled Quetico. Both are adventurous experiences you will never forget.
