The economic boost for Green Country will be significant with officials expecting more than $25 million to be sent in the state this weekend.

The fisherman who wins this event will be taking home $500,000.

In addition to the actual event on Grand Lake, there is a fishing expo at the Tulsa Convention Center this weekend and it's all free.

Each afternoon there will be a weigh-in at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa after they're done catching fish for the day. Doors will open at 3 p.m.

And if you don't want to fight parking downtown, there are several shuttles you can take, from as far away as Bass Pro Shops in Broken Arrow.

Get details about the free Bassmaster Classic shuttle service.
