Bassmaster Elite Series Event- Lake Dardanelle

The Bassmaster Elite Series is hosting a four day tournament this weekend on Lake Dardanelle in Russellville.  The tournament starts Friday June 2 and runs through Monday June 5. Takeoff will occur each day at 6:15 AM from the Lake Dardanelle State Park. Weigh-ins will be held each day at 3:15 PM at Lake Dardanelle State Park as well. Bassmaster will host an outdoor expo both Saturday and Sunday starting at noon. They will have boat demos, sponsor booths, prizes and giveaways.

Currently the “pros” are out on the lake pre-fishing, and can be seen running all over lake Dardanelle. It appears to be tough conditions due to the heavy amounts of rain and flooding we have seen in Arkansas.  The water is higher than normal and very muddy, but as always someone will figure out a pattern to put together some hefty limits.  It will be interesting to see which pro comes out on top, and how they caught their fish.

You can attend the weigh-ins each day at the state park, or starting Saturday June 3rd, Bassmaster will be hosting live weigh-ins from their site.  Here is the link to the live weigh-ins
