In 1995, B.A.S.S. endorsed a video game for the first time. The #BassmasterClassic game debuted on the Sega Genesis and the Super Nintendo for players wanting the thrill of Classic competition.

This year we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of B.A.S.S.! Each week we’ll bring you a fact from our history with #BASS50.
Meet Tyler Derman. The 17-year-old senior at Phoenix High School in Glendale, Arizona, took a special trip to Kentucky Lake to serve as a Marshal. Why make the long trip with his mom Michele Derman and grandmother Victorian Norton? @tylerdermanfishing has qualified to fish the #BassHighSchool Championship at Kentucky Lake this August, and he was scouting and learning from the pros. “I started fishing three years ago and I’m soaking it up like a sponge,” Tyler said. “When I find ‘em it’s very satisfying. I’d love to fish in college.”
We’re featuring 50 fans of B.A.S.S, as part of our #BASS50 celebration. If you would like to nominate a superfan, email Don Barone at email@example.com.
@Caleb.Sumrall has been tournament fishing for about five years, and this is his first Toyota. “I’m now a Toyota owner for life,” Sumrall said. “The Bonus Bucks program is a great program for a Nation guy like me, a Weekend Warrior without a lot of sponsors.”
We’re teaming up with @toyotausa to give you an inside look at the lives of Bonus Bucks anglers of all types here on our Instagram account with #ToyotaBonusBucks.
