Even if you don't like fishing, you'll like the 2012 Bass Master Classic here in Shreveport on the Red River this weekend. So far, we've been blessed with amazing weather for the Super Bowl of bass fishing tournaments. The top prize is $500,000.

Second prize ain't too shabby either. It's $45,000.  The biggest names in professional bass fishing are here.  In fact,  Kevin VanDam has won twice here and he's going for his third victory.  If  he reels in his third victory, it will be a first in history for the Red River's Bass Master Classic.

There are a variety of events going on in conjunction with the tournament itself, like live music and good eats. The weigh ins are being held at the CenturyLink Center so everyone can get involved.  Meet the superstars and check out the many vendors who'll have all kinds of fishing gear on sale.

Here are some pictures to show you what you're missing if you don't come out.
