B.A.S.S. Announces 2020 Dates For Additional Tournament Series

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — After announcing schedules for the Elite Series and Basspro.com Bassmaster Opens Series last week, today B.A.S.S. unveiled revised event dates for the remaining events on their 2020 tournament schedule.

Sixteen Bassmaster Tournament Series events originally scheduled between March and May had to be rescheduled, but officials highlighted that the new schedules allow for the full tournament circuit to be completed this year.

“We are excited to get back to the fun of tournament fishing in a safe and responsible way,” said Jon Stewart, B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament Director. “We appreciate our local hosts and staff, who worked diligently to find new dates so that every angler who has looked forward to this season can compete.”

B.A.S.S. has emphasized that it will heed each state’s mandates on crowd sizes and public spaces as well as monitor federal guidelines to ensure both competition and fan activities can resume safely. These sentiments were echoed by officials in the tournament host communities.

“We are confident in our ability to host a safe event in August. Everyone involved is committed to being prudent in our planning, making the changes that are necessary to adhere to the safety guidelines in place at that time,” said Mark Jeanneret, Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission, local host for the B.A.S.S. Nation Northeast Regional Championship.

As schools around the country resume in late-summer, competition will also resume for college, high school and junior anglers.

“While it is disappointing for anglers and families anytime we have to postpone high school and college tournaments, I am thrilled that we were able to get events rescheduled so that the majority of teams who registered for these tournaments can compete,” said College and High School Series Senior Manager Hank Weldon.
