Postponed Elite event rescheduled for Guntersville

B.A.S.S. announced today that the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament previously scheduled for Cayuga Lake earlier in July will instead be held Sept. 30-Oct. 3 on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville. Daily launches and weigh-ins will take place at Goose Pond Colony Resort Marina in Scottsboro, Ala., which is hosting the event.

“We are excited to host another B.A.S.S. event and showcase our facilities at Goose Pond Colony,” said Scottsboro Mayor Robin Shelton. “I know the event will be as successful as last year’s event and I am looking forward to working with this staff again.”

Lake Guntersville has hosted 24 major B.A.S.S. events, including the 2020 Bassmaster Classic.

“While it has been challenging to reschedule events, we intend to complete a full schedule of tournaments,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin. “We are thankful to our friends at the City of Scottsboro for partnering with us to offer anglers another opportunity to fish on one of our country’s best lakes while showcasing the area’s beauty for our audience."

“Our anglers and fans are going to really enjoy the fishing on Lake Guntersville in the fall.”

Officials emphasized that they will adhere to all local and state guidelines to ensure the event is safe for athletes, staff and the host community.

The Guntersville tournament will kick off a busy schedule of fall derbies that will see the Elite Series pros competing on Santee Cooper in Clarendon County, S.C., Oct. 8-11, Tennessee’s Lake Chickamauga Oct. 16-19, and Texas’s Lake Fork for the Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest benefiting Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Nov. 5-8.
