Fans of Exposed can expect pro anglers Ott DeFoe, Ish Monroe, and Brian Snowden (winner of the TTBC in 2010) to be popping in at the ProPatterns booth from time to time during the tournament. Fans who come by the booth might also have the chance to meet Exposed co-host Sondra Rankin, as well as Charley Farley, the singer-songwriter behind the Exposed theme song, during the tournament.
This year's Toyota Texas Bass Classic will feature a field of fifty anglers from the top professional leagues in the world, including the PAA Bass Pro Shops Tournament Series, Bassmaster Elite Series, and the Walmart FLW Tour. Matt Reed, President of PAA, explains how this event stands apart from other tournaments: “The biggest difference in this event is that you get the best from BASS, FLW and PAA competing against each other in a single event.” Reed adds, “The Toyota Texas Bass Classic also makes a 250 thousand dollar donation to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to continue the tremendous job they do with our fisheries. Toyota funds this event with no entry fees to the anglers and every fisherman gets paid. For the fans there are concerts every evening and many things to do at the expo: drive a Tundra, visit the Yamaha Test Track, enjoy the Bass Pro Shop Kid Zone and more.” The Band Perry headlines the entertainment for the weekend.
The Exposed Season 2 DVD collection is selling quickly, so fans attending the Toyota Texas Bass Classic should pick their copy up at the ProPatterns booth. Pro anglers featured in the Exposed Season 2 DVD collection include Brandon Card, Alton Jones, Jason Williamson, David Fritts, Brent Ehrler, Travis Manson, Yusuke Miyazai, Casey Ashley, Fletcher Shryock, Chris Lane, Todd Faircloth, Tim Horton, Pete Ponds, Mike McClellend, Ott DeFoe, Mark Davis, Brian Snowden, Stephen Browning, Kelly Jordan, Ish Monroe, John Crews, Bobby Lane, Fred Roumbanis, and Scott Ashmore. The eight disk collection offers over 16 hours of entertainment and education, with each episode following one of the 24 pro anglers as they study and practice on competition waters across North America before pro tournaments.
PAA President Matt Reed describes Exposed as “the purest live action film you have ever seen of Pro fishermen. These videos are filmed in actual practice day situations at major events. It shows how Pros put together the patterns they will use in the tournaments... no staged video settings. Real life stuff!”
