Today we take a break from the standard “Box Score” and “Name that Angler” questions normally posed by Pete and welcome one offered up by Harold Sharp. As you all know, Harold was the first Tournament Director for B.A.S.S. – a position he helped define during the early years of competitive bass fishing. Harold has also been a big help here on the Bass Fishing Archives acting as an editor (of sorts) to help us maintain accuracy of the historical events we bring to you along with providing you, the readers, with some pretty interesting stories that happened during his tenure as the B.A.S.S. Tournament Director.

On to Harold’s question for you.

Bobby Murray won the first Bassmaster Classic fishing a Zorro Aggravator Spinnerbait designed and manufactured by Stan Sloan. Who won Ray Scott’s first Bass Tournament held on Arkansas’ Beaver Lake and what lure was he fishing?

The correct answer and winner will be announced on Thursday. Good Luck!
