None of the contenders for the 2012 Bassmaster Classic title know what to expect from the Red River, since itís been off limits for more than two months. But that changes tomorrow (Feb. 17) when the first of four practice days begin.
The Classic is set to be held Feb. 24-26 out of Shreveport-Bossier City.
Itís a safe bet that the majority of the 49 competitors have been tracking weather trends and river levels for weeks. Most anglersí ideal conditions would be moderate air and water temperatures, Goldilocks water levels (not too high and not too low) and a moderate rate of water flow.
And thatís been the Red over the past few days.

It is easier to predict a winning roulette number than it is to guess whoís going to win a Bassmaster Classic. Take Skeet Reese for example. Nobody predicted this California kid going to the Red River and winning in 2009.
However, fishing being what it is, all the variables and proverbial stars aligned for Reese three years ago as he found enough Red River bass to bring home the title of Classic Champion.
Unfortunately for Reese, he wonít be able to defend his Red River championship because for the first time in 10 years, he didnít qualify for the Classic.
