B.A.S.S. Postpones Opens Series Event On Cherokee Lake

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Due to public health concerns surrounding the coronavirus, B.A.S.S. officials announced today they will postpone the Basspro.com Bassmaster Eastern Open at Cherokee Lake originally scheduled to be held on the Jefferson County, Tenn., fishery May 7-9.

B.A.S.S. has postponed eight events originally scheduled between March and May and is monitoring the situation and following precautions and advice from the CDC and public officials when evaluating upcoming tournaments. Additionally, B.A.S.S. is tracking mandates at state and local levels regarding public spaces and events.

As more states adopt “shelter in place” recommendations and continue to limit the operation of nonessential businesses, B.A.S.S is also considering the impact that potential logistical issues and restrictions on domestic and international travel may have on anglers’ ability to travel to tournaments.

At this time, no additional Opens Series event has been postponed or canceled other than the Basspro.com Bassmaster Central Open at Lewisville Lake in Lewisville, Texas, which was announced last month.

A new tournament date will be announced in the future.
