Many people will want to be spectators on the water for this weekend's Bassmaster Classic Championship in Marshall County, but anglers and the marine police are asking those watching by boat to maintain their distance.
People enjoyed watching the professionals that were out for a practice run Wednesday morning in advance of Friday's three-day tournament. Marine police said they will be out in force during the tournament.
"When an angler leaves a spot, that spot cannot be re-fished. These guys are here for only three days so they request that you leave the spots alone," said Marine Police Officer Thomas Bobo.
Marine police also warn they will be performing safety checks on boaters.
