BassMasters Elite Comes to Bull Shoals Next Year


Elite #3

Dates: April 19-22

Venue: Bull Shoals Lake

Host: Arkansas

Size 45,000 surface acres

Impounded: 1951

Notes: B.A.S.S. has held six previous events on Bull Shoals, but none (other than a 2006 WBT tournament) since 1991. Despite the small number, Bull Shoals has a big place in B.A.S.S. history. Dee Thomas, the inventor of flippin’, introduced the world to his technique by winning the 1975 Arkansas Invitational here. With the victory — and a subsequent series of features in Bassmaster Magazine — flippin’ became the hottest technique on the Tournament Trail. It still is, really, and Bull Shoals is where the story broke

I would like to see how they will fare on a tuff lake for once. This will be quite a change from what they are used to doing.
