LAST CHANCE to Enter Plano’s Retro Lure Giveaway!

Grand Prairie, TX (March 11, 2020) The first Bassmaster Classic was held 50 years ago and Plano Molding was the first tackle storage sponsor for the event. 24 competitors in the first Classic were only allowed to carry four rods and reels and 10 pounds of lures when they boarded a charter flight for parts unknown.

“We were given an official Plano tackle box and had a weigh-in before the Classic even began,” said Bobby Murray, who won the first Bassmaster Classic in 1971. “If the tackle box weighed more than 10 pounds, then (B.A.S.S. Founder) Ray Scott would open it up and take the lures he wanted to keep.” Contrasted to today, Bassmaster Classic anglers probably have more than 100 pounds of lures stowed
in their boats!

Celebrating this 50-year partnership, Plano is joining Bassmaster by reliving the original Classic event and launching the Classic Retro Lure Giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a set of rare, collectible antique lures from Rebel, Cotton Cordell, Heddon, Lazy Ike and B Lures, plus a Plano 777 Tackle box just like the ones used by anglers in the first Bassmaster Classic on Lake Mead.

The prize package also includes a complete set of new Plano EDGE™ tackle boxes and a giant cache of brand-new lures from Bandit, Bomber, BOOYAH, YUM, War Eagle and more. The contest runs through March 15, 2020. Contestants can enter daily at www.bassmaster.com/retroluregiveaway.
