    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Bass anglers hoping for a spot in the 2017 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens tournaments will soon be able to apply, B.A.S.S. announced today. Registration opens for members of the B.A.S.S. Nation and Lifetime members of B.A.S.S. beginning on November 8.

    New this year in registration for the Opens is the ability of pro anglers to “link” with co-anglers during online signup. Like other pro-am events, Opens participation is limited to an equal number of anglers and co-anglers. By “linking” or ensuring the participation of a co-angler, anglers can improve their odds of getting into the tournaments.

    Alan Daniels, Backlashers of Kansas City, recalls...

    "On the second day of the 2016 Missouri State Championships at Lake of the Ozarks, on October 16, 2016 it was a beautiful day, highs were in the mid 80’s and people were out enjoying the day getting some final cleanup work done in their yards and docks. I was fishing with Jeff Sell of the Leavenworth Bass Club on a long stretch of docks just off the main channel, I had just put my second keeper in the boat as we were talking to a gentleman whom working on his boat before he had to winterize it. When I heard someone crying, as I was looking around to find out where this was coming from, I had noticed a lady, possibly in her mid 60’s, in the water. She was fully clothed and seemed to be struggling, I told Jeff that I think this woman is hurt and can’t get back on her dock. We threw the rods on the deck, yelled at the gentleman working on his boat that his neighbor is hurt and sped her way with the trolling motor on high, as she was only 3 docks away."

    Hi Everyone,

    I know you have been patiently waiting for the dates and location of the regionals. I will have housing and weigh in location info soon and I ask that you at least wait a few days before booking your teams hotels. We are working closely with a couple of hosts and we promised them we would get you host housing info and that some of you would stay there…... I am just waiting on a couple of details.

    Also, last year was a transitional year. We allowed 2-3 states that had trouble filling their teams from their state qualifier tournaments, to fill with board members, regular etc… this year we will not allow this. You must fill your teams from tournament competitors that fished your state qualifying tournaments to include events such as Mr. Bass or Trail winners. If your team is not filled through these avenues, your team will be short. I don’t think this is a huge issue but just wanted to be up front about it.

    Well here are two of the three regionals…..

    Central – Lake of the Ozarks, Osage Beach, MO, April 5-7

    Western – Lake Shasta, Redding, CA, April 19-21 (College Western will run concurrently, with those anglers (20 boats or so) going out Last each day, weighing in last on the same stage)

    Columbia, Mo.—The Mexico Bassmasters club helped the local Bass Pro Shops store hold a high school bass tournament June 12 at the store’s pond.

    The first Columbia Bass Pro Shops High School Invitational pitted Helias High School against Southern Boone County High in a two-hour tournament. Columbia Bass Pro Shops manager David Smith said the event was a show of support by the company and his store for high school bass fishing. “We had two schools [Southern Boone and Helias] that for the last year participated with us to help promote the activity in their schools, and because of their participation, we invited them to this invitational tournament,” Smith said.
