Softball, fastball or curveball – not sure which this will turn out to be for our readers, but we’ll find out soon enough. Everybody knows Ray Scott was responsible for implementing catch-and-release programs into bass tournaments, a move that some nowadays harken to be nothing short of sacred mantra among bass anglers. We want to test your knowledge of the history behind this occurrence though. To do that, and to be able to claim this week’s contest, sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, you’ll have to answer the following three questions:
- What year did Ray Scott begin implementing catch and release practices into his national tournaments?
- What was the slogan/name of the original catch and release program?
- Name the event that Ray was at when this C&R epiphany dawned on him (the more exact the better).
One hint – the first two answers can be found by searching this site, among others. The last answer you might have to dig a bit for.
Answers and winner will be announced on Thursday – good luck!
