The Whitten family of Germantown Tn continues their gracious support of our annual event. Mike and Sherry will once again sponsor the Three Angels Award. This $500 cash award is presented to the angler catching the largest smallmouth of the tournament weighing 6 lbs or more.
The Three Angels Award is in memory of three precious daughters, Rainey Lipscomb, Lacey Lipscomb and Calista Jean “Cali” Whitten. All three of these angels were called home by our Lord, from families who love to fish, and who loved to share the outdoors with them. The Whittens wish to honor their memory, and support other children in need with this award.
In event no smallmouth is caught weighing more than 6lbs, the $500 award will be presented to the Catch-A-Dream Foundation.
In addition to the Three Angels Award, we proudly announce that Mike and Sherry will also personally sponsor a Junior Level prize. A $50 cash prize will be award to the highest finishing Junior angler.
For the second year, Mr Whitten will also award a $100 cash prize, the Ron Pierce Memorial Award, to the top finishing team competing in a BassCat Boat.
Please join us in thanking this amazing couple for their support of both our anglers and the Catch-A-Dream Foundation.
We welcome Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau as our latest 2018 Pickwick Lake Catch-A-Dream Bass Classic sponsor. In addition to their cash support, they’ll be working hard to identify and recruit other sponsors in the greater Hardin County area as we work to make this the biggest and most successful Pickwick Bass Classic yet! Many thanks to Executive Director Beth Pippen and tourhardincounty.org
