Kansan fifth at The Classic, Sport Show success

The big outdoors news of the weekend was the Bassmaster Classic in the Louisiana delta. Of local interest was that Kansan Brent Chapman was in the hunt for a coveted championship heading into Sunday’s final day of fishing.

After Saturday’s weigh-in he was solidly in second-place.

Kansan Brent Chapman, of Lake Quivira, headed into the final day of the Bassmaster's Classic in second-place. He finished a prestigous fifth by taking nice limits of bass all three days.

The prize would have been $500,000, not to mention obtaining near rock star status by winning the biggest event in fishing.

Chapman gave it a good go, and did well, but ended up in fifth.


Another Sports Show is passed and a big “thanks” goes to all who came by The Eagle’s booth and voted for the winners in our Great Outdoors Photo Contest.

Sorry we were in a booth that nearly took GPS coordinates to find. It was due to a mix-up at The Eagle. The Sports Show people did their best to get us in a good location.

Those who made it to the booth seemed to enjoy the display. Hopefully I came out with some good ideas for articles and gained some more online followers for the electronic outdoors page, the weekly e-letter and this blog.
