B.A.S.S. Adds Championship to Revamped Opens Scheduleby Brad Baranowski on 09/02/17
B.A.S.S. has announced today that the 2018 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Open Series will include an end-of-year Opens Championship to be held in October. The championship will determine the anglers that will be invited to the 2019 Bassmaster Classic and 2019 Elite Series. There will now be two divisions instead of three but an extra tournament will be added per division. Florida will be the site of the first open tournament in the Eastern Division schedule with a stop at the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes in early February. The second division will be called the Central Division, leaving the western half of the United States without a division or single open tournament. Check out the announcement from Bassmaster for more details on the Open Tournament Schedule and Championship.
