Bassmaster moving back to Alabama

Bassmaster is returning home. The headquarters will be relocating in Alabama.

The sporting company is looking at a target date of November 1 for the move to Birmingham.

After 35 years in Montgomery, Bassmaster moved to Celebration, Florida in 2003.

The company is now coming full circle, within 85 miles or so.

While November 1 is the target date, the move will definitely happen by late fall according to the company.

Ray Scott, the former owner and founder, said he was happy with the news that Bassmaster is "coming home".
