2017 BASS Elite Season Starts Today!

New Concept for 2017

The 2017 BASS Elite season is starting off today with a pre-Classic event on Cherokee Lake outside of Knoxville, Tennessee. With the BASS Classic moved to March, instead of February, BASS didn't want to delay the season so they came up with a fresh idea; their first event occurring before the main event.

Cherokee is a challenging fishery at the best of times and this looks to be even more difficult. Very few anglers have experience here especially during the late winter. Another factor is the water is low. Low water usually means less shallow cover for anglers and bass. This highland reservoir's primary cover is rock and some wood. Expect anglers to focus on bass in transition. Smallmouth will be a factor. This region has always produced monster brown bass. Also, the pre-spawn period often has big smallies schooled up making several northern anglers possible outside favourites.
