The real “green” in green trout

Some people jokingly call them “green trout”. No joke.

And here’s the funny part — they really are. Green trout, that is. As in $$$$Green$$$$.

Starting today, the 2016 BASSMaster Classic is underway in Oklahoma on Grand Lake.

That’s an apt name for the site where 55 professional anglers fish for laregmouth bass (aka green trout) and  $300,000 in prizes. The winner gets a 50 pound trophy and that’s about how many pounds of bass it will take to win the event!

Officials say more than 107,000 spectators are expected to watch the fishermen on Grand Lake and at the weigh-ins at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa.  The Tulsa Chamber’s Visitor Bureau is projecting a $29 million impact for the Tulsa area’s economy. Green trout.
