B.A.S.S. Postpones Day 1 Of Bassmaster Elite At Neely Henry Lake


GADSDEN, Ala. — High waters caused by extremely high rainfall totals across the region Tuesday and Wednesday have forced B.A.S.S. officials to postpone the first day of competition at the Whataburger Bassmaster Elite at Neely Henry Lake.

The full field of 98 anglers will now compete on both Friday and Saturday, with only the Top 48 advancing to Sunday’s semifinal round. The Top 10 will compete for the championship on Monday. Daily takeoffs will be held at 5:40 a.m. CT from Gadsden City Boat Docks, also known as Coosa Landing, with weigh-ins back at the docks each day at 2 p.m.

The tournament is being hosted by the City of Gadsden and Greater Gadsden Area Tourism.
