“We are so excited to partner with the Red River Waterway Commission to host the Ray Scott National Championship right here in the heart of Sportsman’s Paradise,” said Sara Nelms, Director of Sales and Events for the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission. “The Red River offers some of the best bass fishing in the world, and Shreveport-Bossier City will deliver nothing less than the world-class hospitality Louisiana is known for!”

“The Red River is the perfect location for this event, I know anglers are looking forward to coming to one of Louisiana’s most talked about waterways and experiencing the hospitality of Shreveport and Bossier City,” said Morris Sheehan, President of American Bass Anglers. “Sarah Nelms and all the Sports Commission always rolls out the red carpet for our anglers, weigh-ins will be at 3 pm daily at the Red River South Marina and Resort, and the public is invited.”
