America Outdoors Radio - June 19, 2021

This weekend on America Outdoors Radio we are highlighting several anglers who fished this year's Bassmaster Classic at Lake Ray Roberts in Texas.  One of those anglers is Trevor McKinney, who earned a berth in the classic by winning a college bass fishing championship representing McKendree University in Illinois.  Another competitor is Keith Carson, a down to earth, Florida fisherman working out of a Crestliner aluminum bass boat.  Most of our time though is spent with Canadian angler Chris Johnston.  We'll talk about his journey to the Classic which started with a local tournament he fished with his dad when he was eleven years old.  Chris will also take some time during the official practice day at Lake Ray Roberts to share some great advice about how to pre-fish a lake and effectively flip soft plastics into cover for big bass.  Last but not least, we'll preview a big Ducks Unlimited Expo coming to the Texas Motor Speedway on June 25th thru the 27th.
