RE: Windy City Classic – I know the Classic in Chicago often gets a bad rap and for many reasons it deserves to. That said, for a 15-year-old kid such as myself living in Wisconsin, it was my best opportunity to go to a Classic at the time. To me, it was a great Classic because it came to a part of the country that at the time hadn’t really seen a major tournament like that. While it may not have brought the results or the fanfare as most Classics, for some it was still the greatest show in fishing. I’d like to see it go to more unconventional places to expose more people to it outside of the typical audience.
