Mr. Bass of Arkansas is coming to Clinton next week.

The organization will hold its annual classic tournament on Greers Ferry Lake Oct. 10-12. Fishermen will launch and weigh in at the Choctaw ramp each day.

Ronnie Everett writes on the organization’s website that Clinton was “very glad to be a part of our event. Clinton’s participation in the Classic will add several thousand dollars to our payout.”

The Clinton City Council held a special meeting last week and agreed to give the organizers $3,000 to bring the tournament here. The Advertising and Promotion Commission pitched in another $3,000, according to City Hall.

This will be the organization’s second tournament this year on Greers Ferry Lake. In April, the anglers fished out of Devils Fork recreational area. Ryan Williams took first place in that event.
