Special Message to our Pickwick Anglers and Friends
After much deliberation, prayers, and efforts to identify a critical mass of sponsor support, we have made the decision not to conduct what would be the 11th Annual Pickwick Bass Classic in 2023. The decline in sponsor support in recent years has resulted in unfavorable gross income:net proceed ratios, which are critical to surviving fiscal audit scrutiny and thus justifying the time, effort and expense incurred in a charitable fund raising event. Sufficient business and community support is simply not apparent. We will, however, continually revisit options for 2024, and will remain hopeful that new opportunities arise. Thank you for a great 10 years! The Pickwick angling community has made a major difference in the lives of hurting children and families!


They’re off! 58 boats blasted off at safe light as the rains began. Stay safe folks! Weigh-in begins at 3 pm.


We’ll begin packing Thursday morning to make the trip to Counce so, to allow us time to get all pre-ordered Jerseys pulled and on the trailer, we’ll close the option to order Jerseys on the registration page at 5 pm TODAY. But Jerseys can still be ordered using this link https://fundraise.givesmart.com/form/X2DsRw?vid=vbpr8 or by texting the keyword JERSEYS to 91999. Jerseys ordered after 5 pm today will be shipped next week. All anglers who pre-ordered Jerseys with their registration will have them included in your packet when you check in Saturday morning.

Just in!

Just in! Thanks to a very special friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, we’ll pay $250 to the top finishing team that includes 1 adult and 1 youth (under age 16) in addition to any other winnings they may earn.
