The 2011 Bassmaster Elite Series season will open with two tournaments in Florida, but not on the Kissimmee Chain.

B.A.S.S. announced Wednesday that the Elite Series opens March 10-13 on the Harris Chain at Tavares, then visits the St. John’s River at Palatka March 17-20.
While the Elite pros won’t be on the Kissimmee Chain, the Bassmaster Southern Open series may stop at Lake Toho in 2011, although the schedule hasn’t been confirmed.

Locks on the Kissimmee Chain are closed to boat traffic through the end of 2010 for repairs, but work is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31.
The 2011 season actually begins for Elite Series pros with the Bassmaster Classic at New Orleans Feb. 18-20.
After the Harris Chain and St. John’s River, the tour heads to Pickwick Lake April 6-9; Toledo Bend April 14-17; West Point Lake May 5-8; Lake Murray May 12-15; the Arkansas River June 9-12; and Wheeler Lake June 16-19.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
