Bassmasters Coming to Scottsboro

By B.A. Little, Account Executive

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — The Bassmasters Elite Series have announced that they are moving one of their elite tournament locations from the west coast to Scottsboro on June 21-24. Goose Pond Colony will be ground zero for the tournament, but many events are planned in conjunction with this elite fishing tournament. It is a favorite for anglers and tournament hosts which ranked Lake Guntersville ninth on the 2018 list of Bassmaster Magazine’s 100 Best Bass Lakes.

According to Bassmaster, “The Bassmaster Elite Series is the highest level of professional bass fishing tournaments. Competitors must qualify for the series through the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens or the B.A.S.S. Nation, and anglers who are already on the Elite Series must re-qualify each year by maintaining enough points throughout the season. The pro anglers compete all season for the opportunity to win points toward the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year award and to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic.”

Meg Nippers, Events & Marketing Coordinator for the Mountain Lakes Chamber added this insight, “We see a great economic impact on tourism with any fishing tournament, but the Bassmaster Elite Series is something special. We will be hosting 75 of the country’s top anglers here in Scottsboro at Goose Pond Colony. B.A.S.S. is well-known for putting on great events, and we know this tournament will be no different.”

Saturday, June 22 will be Military and First Responder Appreciation Day. Simply show a military ID to a B.A.S.S. staff member in the Bassmaster or merchandise booth to receive a free Bassmster hat (limited to the first 100 people). 

Sunday, June 23 is B.A.S.S. Member Appreciation Day. Show your B.A.S.S. member card to a staff member at the Bassmaster or merchandise booth to received a free Bassmaster hat (limited to the first 100 people). 

K98 will be broadcasting live at the event and announcing the weigh-in winners each day.
