While the FLW pros battled it out at Beaver Lake, American and Canadian "amateur" anglers fought for their chance to "Live the Dream" at the 2015 The Bass Federation National Championship on Grand Lake, Oklahoma. The ALL-American is a pinnacle tournament that has launched the careers of many legendary anglers.
Belleville angler, Curtis Richardson became the best of the Eastern Division and earned a covenant place in the 2015 ALL-American with his 34 pounds. Canadian team member Tommy Lee snapped this photo of the big bass that secured first place for Curtis.
