B.A.S.S. postpones Day 1 of Bassmaster Elite at Lake Murray

After consulting with the National Weather Service, B.A.S.S. officials are postponing Day 1 of competition at the Minn Kota Bassmaster Elite at Lake Murray due to high winds and the possibility of severe weather, including strong, damaging winds in excess of 60 miles per hour. The forecast also includes the possibility of lightning and hail as well as possible tornadoes.

The full field of anglers will now compete on Friday and Saturday, with the Top 50 competing Sunday and the Top 10 advancing to Championship Monday. Lake Murray is off limits today.

Daily takeoffs will be held Dreher Island State Park at 7 a.m. ET with weigh-ins each day back at the park at 3 p.m. Bassmaster LIVE will be streaming on Bassmaster.com all four days, and coverage will also be available on FS1 on Saturday and Sunday.

The event is being hosted by the Capital City Lake Murray Country.
